Mother Nature is a very uncooperative woman! All the planning and work that goes into putting on an event like the Uncle Sam Jam all goes for naught because of another hurricane hitting the Eastern Seaport. Like all the other citizens of New York, I'm waterlogged, and just plain sick and tired of all the rain.
On September 5th, the Uncle Sam Jam now becomes, "Troy's End of Summer Big Band Bash." The Secret, who were supposed to open today's event, are off to Oakland, California tomorrow, and Florida later in the week. Needless to say, they can't make it next week. Here's the revamped lineup, with new show times:
*1 p.m. -- Wylder
*3 p.m. -- Solid Smoke
5:30pm - Johnny Rabb & the Jailhouse Rockers
I guess you could call this combination, "R&B and Soul meets Rock n Roll."
Stay tuned to the Record, B95.5 & Magic 100.9fm for additional updates on the September 5th show. Or visit, www.troyny.gov Updates for the event will be up on the website beginning on Monday afternoon. All Catholics reading this, put out the Rosary Beads on the clothesline to help this lousy weather to clear up before next weekend.
