Saranac Thursdays Looking For Bands
A sure sign of summer in central New York is the return of Saranac Thursdays in the parking lot of the F.X. Matt Brewery on Court Street in Utica. Well, we’ve got a long way to go until then, but the brewery is now accepting info from bands who wish to be considered as entertainment for one of the Thursdays.
According to the F.X. Matt Brewing Company,
“The F.X. Matt Brewing Company is accepting music press kits from area bands wishing to perform at Saranac Thursdays this year. The event, in it’s 14th year, will
run every Thursday evening from 5-8PM from May 24, 2012 to September 30, 2012 at the F.X. Matt Brewing Company Tour Center Courtyard at Court and Varick Streets.
The brewery will be accepting music demos until March 9, 2012 and is limiting each group to one performance date.
A portion of the proceeds from Saranac Thursdays benefits the United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area. In the past ten years, the F.X. Matt Brewing Company’s Saranac Thursdays have raised over $300,000 directly for the United Way.Music press kits may be sent to the F.X. Matt Brewing Company, Attention Saranac Thursdays, 811 Edward Street, Utica, New York 13502 or electronic press kits can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
