They’ve opened for folks like Levon Helm, Pete Seeger, Gene Ween and Dan Zanes. and they have played at such festivals as Mountain Jam, Clearwater Festival and many more.

Being influenced by many different genres and art forms, any first-time listener can find something

Formed during a wild summer, the 3 best friends have been bringing their unique chemistry to the

but guaranteed they are sucking down eggs and avocados to keep their strength up for an energetic, rippin’ good time.

8:30PM - WILLA VINCITORE & COMPANY (SOUL, BLUES, ROCK & FUNK)

Singer/songwriter Willa Vincitore has been building a fan base across the Hudson Valley for nearly two decades and

was inducted into the NY State Blues Hall of Fame in 2018. While her songwriting is an eclectic mix of blues,

soul, rock, funk and (occasionally) pop, there’s one thing that ties it all together—that voice. Reflections in Blue blogger Bill Wilson said,

"Willa Vincitore has one of those voices that will stay with you for life. Good, even great, vocalists are a dime a dozen...but every now and then, someone comes along who brings everything back into perspective in a big way.”
