RAWSON with The Rick Short Band

We are proud to announce powerhouse band Rawson to the KAC ROADHOUSE on Saturday, November, 3rd. Rawson will be bringing their highly energetic live set all the way from NYC to rock our little town. The natural stage prescence and electrifying passion of front man, Sean Haythe, is something to witness. Not to mention flamboyant lead guitar player Jimi Sharp who is one of the hottest ax men on the planet. “Mr. Fabulous” Edwin Alvarado holds down the groove on bass and “G” Greg Norwood putting down the G-Smack on drums. If you love Lenny Kravitz, Prince, The Rolling Stones, The Red Hot Chili Peppers or Jimi Hendrix, we promise you will love Rawson.

Opening the show will be local favorite, The Rick Short Band. Described as: “raw”, “organic”, “”muscular”, “emotional”. “a full performance experience”. “Without a doubt, one of the most refreshing and talented groups to come out of CNY in years.”

Doors will open at 7:30pm and the show will start at 8pm. Tickets are available online below or by calling 853-8871. Space is truly limited so get tickets now. Remember, the Roadhouse format is open with limited seating to encourages dancing. You won’t want to sit for this one. Beer and Wine provided through a cash bar by Nola’s Restaurant.

FLOODWOOD returns with their special holiday show on Friday, Dec. 14th – featuring Al Schnier and Vinnie Amico from premier jam band, moe. 

If you were at last years show, you’ll understand what the hype is all about – you also understand last year’s show sold out and this one is expected to do the same. Get your tickets while they last.

Not only does FLOODWOOD include members of the internationally known moe., they are also made up of some of the best locally known bluegrass artists in our area…with Jason Barady, Nick Piccininni, and Zachary Fleitz.

Remember, last year this show sold out…we highly encourage you to purchase tickets in advance as space is limited. Tickets are $25, and $20 for members. If members buy online, you will need a code for the discount. This code will be emailed to you, or call 853-8871.
