Oswego Music Hall Welcomes Vance Gilbert with Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Location: McCrobie Civic Center, 41 Lake St., Oswego, NY, 13126
Email: OCPAoswego@gmail.com
Can something be wry, aching, hysterical, evocative, provocative, fun, beautifully sung, and consummately played all at once? That would be Vance Gilbert. Vance truly happens live. In fact, he developed his reputation with his jaw-dropping, funny, devastating, and gorgeous live performances. Arlo Guthrie, Anita Baker, the late George Carlin have all requested Vance to be added to their bills. He exploded onto the scene in the early 90’s, with buzz spreading quickly. After opening Shawn Colvin’s 1992 Fat City tour, he took much of America by storm and by surprise. “With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener,” wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in its review of a show. Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers has racked up numerous honors in recent years, including a Sammy Award for Best Americana, an Emerging Artist showcase at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and a video session on Folk Alley. About the Music Hall: In existence for more than 30 years, the Oswego Music Hall offers mostly acoustical musicians every other Saturday night from September to June. On concert evenings, a large empty hall is transformed into an intimate venue replete with candlelit tables, professional staging and sound; as well as an array of freshly baked desserts, hot cider and freshly brewed coffee. Family friendly. Wheelchair accessible.

This year NOAA Brings the Proposed Sanctuary To Life At Lake Ontario Waterfront Festival. “NOAA is pleased to partner with the Maritime Museum on this event,” said Great Lakes Regional Coordinator Ellen Brody, of NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries, Eastern Region. “We have been working together on the proposed Lake Ontario National Marine Sanctuary for the last few years, but this festival gives us another opportunity to visit the Port City and meet the greater Oswego community.

“We are particularly excited to bring out our Oculus headsets for the event,” she added. “This platform allows people to explore NOAA’s underwater sanctuary resources through the magic of virtual reality.”

Visitors will also be able to watch representatives build a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) from a kit which will then be displayed when finished. In addition, members of the local NMS Advisory Council will join NOAA representatives to talk to people about the proposed Lake Ontario National Marine Sanctuary and answer questions.
