Ever want to perform on the big stage with a concert sound system? Every Wednesday, we will be hosting an all new open mic night featuring rotating host bands, a sound engineer, full backline and drink specials. Whether you have an electric band, an acoustic duo or just want to perform a couple tunes on your own, everyone is welcome. And if music isn’t your thing, that’s OK as we are happy to welcome comedians, poets, magicians or any other kind of performer as well. Think of it as Saratoga’s own version of America’s Got Talent… minus the judges of course!
This week we are proud to present Groovestick as our host band for the evening.
Groovestick is a powerhouse funk group fluid with pocket rhythms and progressive funk layers based in Albany, NY. Formed by Dan Gerken on bass/guitar/vox, Chris Carballeira on keyboard/vocals and Dave Berger on percussion, this group is making feet move and booties shake wherever they lay it down.
Sporting a Hammond Organ and traditional elements of blues, jazz and soul, Groovestick has a progressive style of funk writing that is unique on the ‘jamband’ scene right now.
