Musicians to strum up dollars for Plattsburgh theater


Saturday evening’s lineup includes Bruce & Jacob Patenaude, Cherie & Shannon Passno, Taylor LaValley, Craig Hurwitz, Jay Lesage and Keith Pray.

Sunday’s lineup is rounded out by Giovannina Bucci, Mike Pedersen, the Natalie Ward Band, Rock Rhythm & Blues and Frozen Sunshine.

“For each event, it's $20, or you can get a weekend pass and come and go for only $50,” Mundy said.

The refreshment garden features locally brewed beer from the Plattsburgh Brewing Company and wine provided by the Liquor & Wine Warehouse.

“Because there were so many bands involved, we thought of this as a whole weekend,” Hartnett said. “We have more than enough acts for four shows, four hours each.”



The planning for the event began in July.

“I’m sitting in with Jay Lesage and also Bruce Patenaude and Rock Rhythm & Blues, of which I used to be a member 30 years ago,” Hartnett said.

“I’m looking forward to getting people to come to the theater and see what amazing changes have occurred. 

"And what better a group to bring people in but musicians? 

"The money being raised is going toward putting in a sound and lighting system. This is critical performance equipment.

"Musicians seem like a natural group of people to come to such a fundraiser.”
