The 2017 festival is over for Sterling Stage. It ended earlier this month. So what does Sterling Stage Fam do while waiting for next year’s Folkfest? Do wooks hibernate? Oh, hell no. The music doesn’t stop, so how could they? They shuffle indoors and congregate in smaller batches in what I like to call “Sterling Family Reunions.” They pop up all Fall and Winter long!
There’s one going down tonight and tomorrow, 9/29 & 30 at Funk n’ Waffles downtown Syracuse with a double shot of area favorites Root Shock. This band is gaining so much notoriety right now, it won’t be long before small stages are a distant memory. Joining Root Shock tonight is the recently reunited Old Deer Ensemble. These guys enjoyed some really good sets at Sterling festivals this summer. A great band of musicians, they give you feel good rock that jams when it needs to and can take you there! Tomorrow night, regional roots reggae stars, Mosaic Foundation join Root Shock. They are from the Southern Tier and are a perfect companion for Root Shock. Get on out and jive with family this weekend!
