2.28.24 – Wed. Happy Hour – The Cool Club & The Lipker Sisters 6-8pm
A unique blend of old and new. It’s a blend of four veteran (the old) musicians, whose years of experience create a sound best described in the title of one of their originals…Jump, Jazz, Boogie-Woogie, Rag Time Swing. The Lipker Sisters are three young singers (the new) that have been singing vocal harmony, in a way only family can. They bring back memories of The Andrew Sisters with the attitude of today’s Puppini Sisters, at the same time making it their own.

Son House Blues Night.<br />
Thursday 2.29.24. 6-8pm. Genesee Johnny ft. Debbie Kendrick. Record Archive 33 1/3 Rockwood St Rochester NY 14610.<br />

2.29.24 – Son House Blues Night – Debbie Kendrick 6-8pm
Genesee Johnny hosts Son House Night again on the final Thursday of each month in the Backroom Lounge at Record Archive – featuring a special guest each month, beer, wine and pizza on top of the live music! Son House was one of the original delta blues slide players who toured with and recorded at the same sessions with Charlie Patton and Willie Brown who influenced / taught Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and Howlin Wolf only to quit music and disappear… He was found decades later living as an unknown here in Rochester, NY. He then would go on to record and tour internationally before old age and failing health forced his retirement. About 10 years ago, Gordon Munding- https://www.facebook.com/gordmunding started a blues jam to bring our community of musicians and blues lovers together and who better to dedicate such an event to than such a historically overlooked icon like Son House – a one time local musician himself playing coffee houses and bars in the area between tour dates. When Gordon handed Genesee Johnny off the reins 3 years ago he did everything he could to not only keep it going but to build on what he started…”We’ve had our ups and downs experimenting with a few different things. Our last night at The Beale was very special without anyone knowing it – not only was it the last event before an unplanned break and a retool of sorts, but it was the enthusiasm and the turnout and the new and old faces that renewed my belief in this event and it’s potential. Andy is one of the best guitar pickers anyone’s ever heard or seen up close and he’s not coming all the way from Memphis Tennessee to play for nobody.” Genesee Johnny.

Wednesday Happy Hour Featured Artist. Blue Jimmy. March 6 2024. 6-8pm. Record Archive 33 1/3 Rockwood St Rochester NY 14610

3.06.24 – Wed. Happy Hour – Blue Jimmy 6-8pm
Growing up and still based in the small town of Bloomfield, New York (just southeast of Rochester, New York), the five members of Blue Jimmy are comprised of two sets of brothers and a lifelong best friend: Brian Ayers (acoustic guitar, harmonica, lead vocals), Chad Ayers (electric guitar, mandolin, harmony vocals), Steve Nelson (drums), Mike Nelson (bass guitar), and Greg Gefell (electric guitar, pedal steel, resonator, harmony vocals). All spent time in the music program at Bloomfield Central, where the seeds of theory were planted and the bricks of friendship laid at a young age. In addition to writing, recording, engineering, mixing and producing their own music, Greg, Chad and Steve all play instruments they made themselves. Steve is president of his own company, which builds custom drum kits. Chad made one of the guitars he plays and Greg plays a pedal steel that he built from scratch. It is no wonder that they create their music the same way. Crafting songs from a solid heartfelt foundation, technically sound and artistically free, winning the listener over time and time again.
