Winter Blues Returns: This Time, at the Music Hall

Instead of being stuck inside this winter, try cheering up at the fourth annual Winter Blues festival, scheduled for Saturday, January 7, 2017, from 7pm to midnight at the Tarrytown Music Hall.  It will feature a host of local performers such as Juke Joint and the Tarrytown Horns, The Incumbents, The Barn Vultures, and Losing Our Faculties – Sleepy Hollow High School’s teacher band. There will be food and dessert, an open bar, and a silent auction. Come eat, enjoy the music, and meet your neighbors at this spirited event that will keep you dancing all night long.

The Tarrytown Music Hall is a main sponsor of the event and is generously offering their space and assisting with equipment to help support the event.  The Music Hall offers great acoustics, a convenient and spacious location, and hopefully will make this event even better.  In the past, the fundraiser was a hit at the Captain Lawrence Brewery and at Hudson Harbor, which had silent auctions featuring jewelry, wine, art, and gift baskets from local businesses.

The money raised by this event goes to the Sleepy Hollow Performing Arts Boosters, which helps fund the performing arts in the middle and high schools of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown. Specifically, funds help support the dramas and musicals, music competition trips, scholarships, and equipment for the performing arts department.  Recently, the Performing Arts Boosters funded the refurbishment of an irreplaceable eighty-year-old Baldwin piano essential to groups like the Jazz Band at Sleepy Hollow High School.  For a taste of what the fundraiser contributes to, the cast of the spring musical, Pippin, will perform a song at the event.

Tickets are on sale now from the Tarrytown Music Hall for $75.  District teachers and students over 21 are half price.  After January 3rd, the price will rise to $100, so buy your tickets now!
