Big Day In Troy:

   Thousands of people will be visiting Troy on Saturday & Sunday to eat some of the best BBQ, this side of the Mississippi. They'll also be coming to hear some pretty good music, at two separate events. 
   The 5th Annual Troy Pig Out kicks off at 10am, on July 14, with the music starting at 11am. Over the course of the 2 day event, you'll be treated to a diverse array of musical styles, ranging from Blue Grass, Blues, and some pretty darn good rock n roll. Headlining on Saturday will be Blues master guitarist, Albert Cummings. 
   Also appearing will be Troy favorites, Super 400, and swing kings, The Jump Daddies. The Sunday lineup, also beginning  at 11am, features the immortal local legend, Charlie Smith, as well as Blues Sanctuary, and the electric newcomers to the local blues scene, Collette & the Mudcats.
   Bring your appetites, cause like I said earlier, the food is Large & in Charge. Pulled Pork, Ribs, Brisket, & Chicken, as far as the eye can see. BBQ teams from across the USA will compete for cash prizes, as well as the honor of displaying, the 'Golden Pig', which is awarded to the overall winner, to display at their business for the next year. There is also numerous festival food vendors available is you so choose. Just Google, Troy Pig Out for the full schedule of events. 
   Also happening on Saturday night, is the return of the legendary, Refrigerators, to the Neil Kelleher Stage at Historic, Powers Park. Showtime is at 6pm. Long recognized as the Kings of local horn bands, the group just keeps getting better & better every year. Their legions of fans, flock to their shows, which resulted in the band drawing the largest crowd ever in the history of the popular concert series -- as well as it being one of my own personal favorite shows I've ever heard performed over the past eight seasons -- and I've been to every single one. 
   Troy is giving you options this weekend. So DVR the Yankee games, and join us for all the fun, food, and great music. ENJOY TROY!
