(Syracuse, NY) – On December 26 the Palace Theatre at 2384 James St, Syracuse, New York, will be host to the GREAT Salt City Blues Concert, an historic celebration (not a jam) of the rich blues history of Syracuse as one of the most important Blues cities in the Northeastern United States. Doors open at 6pm and showtime is 7:30pm. The GREAT Salt City Blues Concert is dedicated in honor of Kelly James, Roosevelt Dean, Kyle Shirley, and Dave Olson, great Syracuse Blues musicians who are no longer physically with us but their contributions and spirit to the Syracuse Blues community will always be felt.
The players that are participating in The GREAT Salt City Blues Concert all still reside in Central New York and are actively playing. These musicians have greatly contributed to the history of the Syracuse Blues community. They have played in some of the greatest Syracuse based bands of the last 40 years: The Kingsnakes, Built For Comfort, Lil Georgie & the Shuffling Hungarians, Cold Shot, Los Blancos, Out Of The Blue, Tom Townsley & the Backsliders, Jam Factory, Backbone Slip, Ron Spencer Band, and others. Over 20 Syracuse area musicians will gather in celebration.
The GREAT Salt City Blues Concert will NOT be a jam session. Think Last Waltz presented with rhyme and reason for your enjoyment by Blue Wave Productions.
Tickets are $20 and advance sale tickets purchased before December 15th will receive a free Blue Wave CD with each ticket purchased. CDs will be given to ticket holders the night of the show at the door. Advance sale tickets can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets, and in person at Soundgarden in Armory Square.
