Wednesday, May 8th

Salcedo’s Latin Soul

Opener: White Plains High School’s Mariachi Juvenil Los Tigres


Salcedo’s Latin Soul:

Salcedo’s Latin Soul is a powerhouse band embodying New York City’s multicultural life. Inspired by everything from Fania All-Stars, Cortijo y su Combo and Irakere to James Brown, Santana and WAR, they pay tribute to these icons and more, while pushing the culture’s influence into the 21st century. Like boogaloo married Cha Cha Cha with R&B, SLS combines Salsa, Bomba and Timba (to name a few) with Funk, Rock, and Hip Hop. Simply put – Salcedo wants the world to celebrate LATIN SOUL.  Steven Salcedo is a Westchester-native. He’s performed with Miley Cyrus on her New Year’s Eve shows and at the Grammys, and with many others. IG: @salcedomusic

Wednesday, June 12th

Sarah Shook and the Disarmers

Opener: Andrew Weiss and Friends


Sarah Shook and the Disarmers:

It’s obvious listening to Sarah Shook and the Disarmers’ clear-eyed, biting, and unafraid songs that integrity is the most important thing to the Chapel Hill, North Carolina, country-punk outfit.
“A lot of artists are in this industry for fame, recognition, and money but those things don’t mean anything to me,” says bandleader River Shook. “Songwriting is it for me. It’s the only real healthy coping mechanism I’ve ever had. It’s life-saving. I don’t care about any superficial things when I’m making a record.” On their resonant fourth album Revelations, produced by Shook and out March 29 via Thirty Tigers, these raw and resilient tracks come first. Throughout, Shook’s deft storytelling documents regular people getting by and keeping on, all presented without filter or pretension. IG: @sarahshooksdisarmers

Andrew Weiss and Friends:

Andrew Weiss and Friends blend anthemic road rock, booming pop, and poetic Americana across acclaimed LPs, with sold-out shows and performances alongside Counting Crows and Rob Thomas. Singer-songwriter Andrew Weiss crafts intimate, character-driven stories reminiscent of Dawes and Tom Petty. Self-taught from age seven, Weiss’s journey, influenced by The Beatles, led to solo projects before forming the band. Since 2018, they’ve released four LPs, three EPs, and singles, performing at notable festivals and venues. Their music, described as “Power Pop-icana,” celebrates camaraderie and serves as a healing agent in these modern times. IG: @andrewweissmusic
