8:00pm Tucci Western Swing Band
9:00pm HAM Rodeo
HAM Rodeo was formed in late 2017 by four mainstays of the New York City bluegrass scene. Led by vocalists Christian Apuzzo and Larry Cook, guitarist Justin Camerer, and drummer Ellery Marshall, the band who had met freelancing in the world of traditional acoustic music realized that there was a hunger among listeners in the music scene for solid, classic country music for folks to dance to. Armed with a backlog of songs from the greats - everyone from mainstays like Hank, Buck, and Merle, to newer influences such as Caleb Klauder - the band has recently begun writing original music for their forthcoming debut album. They remain firmly in the pocket of traditional American country music, while stretching those boundaries a bit to suit their taste - but always focused on keeping the dance floor full.
