— Golden Novak Band (@goldenovakband) December 31, 2015
Congrats to the Golden Novak Band, who made their way to FL recently. Above our friend Byron shows that there is something worse than getting caught with your hand in the cookie jar…Apparently some guys are so good they can eat and play simultaneously (the kick drum was still going).
We hope a small documentary will be made about their trip.
See if you can recognize the lead voice from this 2011 performance by the Gospel Music Workshop of America (Syracuse section). They performed at the Southside Jazz in the City concert. The guitar licks are courtesy of Gator.
Here are some more photos of the live music scene.
If you appreciate the slick and polished R&B from back in the day, you’ll enjoy this 30-year old classic from Syracuse’s unsung duo of Skipworth and Turner. We are diggin’ the vocal range of Phil Turner on this cut.
The Sitrus on the Hill series continues to be a great place for musical experimentation and ecclectic groups, all served with light fare from the lounge menu. On Friday The Djangoners brought their sound string strategies to town.
We don’t know who is on the roster to perform next month, but we hope CNY continues to take chances and maybe bring an a cappella group, reggae troupe, or even someone like former Yankee Bernie Williams to fill up this intimate venue.
We are not quite sure if this was Dr. Williams’ main band, or his last minute, put-together band, but maybe they should be the house band at CFAC. The quartet, comprised of Williams, along with guitarist Marvin J. Sewell, Ian Stewart on bass, and drummer Joshua Dekaney, found their groove early and often during the “Outlaw Music Culture” performance Thursday night. The house was packed with folk from the SU campus and they showed much love.
The only regret we have is that they weren’t booked in the main gallery, where there are better acoustics, and the perfect view of the the nightscape on East Genesee Street.
