This ain't no joke - Powers Park has Solid Smoke. The legendary funk meisters come to the Neil Kelleher Stage at the Historic Lansingburgh park tonight for a 6:00 p.m. performance. To say that this band is just good, would be falling way short of the mark. This is truly an amazing group of musicians, who play with determination and zeal. Their soulful renditions of R&B classics, along with Motown hits, just have a way of bringing back fond memories to anyone who grew up in that era.
When Solid Smoke breaks out the funk, just stand back and let the groove take over. Last year after opening for Eddie Money in downtown Troy, Money's road manager came over to me and just said, "Wow -- these guys are great. " If you come out to the show, I'm sure you'll feel the same. So if you enjoy this type of music, I encourage you to break out the lawn chair, and come and get the funk n soul out with Solid Smoke.
The Powers Park Concerts are brought to you by Mayor harry Tutunjian & the City of Troy. They are supported in part by Snowman Ice Cream, Whitney Young Health, Northeast Shuttle, Trader Ed's, Lansing Laundry, Barrett Blacktopping, Beverage Barn, Troy UFA, and the Friends of 112th St. Media sponsorship is provided by the Troy Record, the Albany Broadcasting Group, and Our Towne Magazine. Additional advertising is provided by WVCR, 88.3fm, The Saint. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are available at the show. No dogs are allowed during the concerts so please, leave Fido at home.

Their incredible front man/ singer, Alejandro Williams - AKA Jack the Poet - is like an nuclear energy source when gets on stage. He's one of the best I've ever seen in this area in my 40 years around the local music scene. Most of the group are St. Rose graduates -- all are amazing musicians. If you would like to see them in action, visit YouTube, and go to, Troy NY Events. There's a couple of video's of them at Revolution Hall (RIP). Seeing them live tonight will be even better though!
So take a Troycation tonight, drive up to 110th & Second Ave., and join us for the show. Tonight's 50/50 raffle will benefit both the Troy, and Lansingburgh Boy's & Girls Club. Bring a lawn chair and leave the dog at home please. Showtime is 6 p.m. Food and non alcoholic beverages are available at the show. A Face Painter is also there for the kiddies.
