After adding Ben Wysocki (drums) and Dave Welsh (lead guitar), the band landed on a name by asking people to write down ideas on pieces of paper. The winning suggestion, The Fray, was selected randomly.
The band as we know them today burst onto the pop music scene in the mid-2000s with hits including “How to Save a Life,” You Found Me,” and of course, “Over My Head (Cable Car).” Following a successful second album in 2009, the band earned a spot on Billboards’ Artists of the Decade list.

Yung Gravy’s moniker oozes “sauce,” and that’s what he tries to incorporate into the unique recipe he contributes to the rap genre. Gravy’s brand of rap blends catchy beats and clever rhymes with musical styles that harken back as far as the 1940s,1950s, and 1960s. He often samples Motown, Soul, and Funk. In his music, fans will recognize samples of “Mr. Sandman” by The Chordettes, “Careless Whisper” by George Michael, and, most recently, “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley, in his song “Betty (Get Money).”Yung Gravy often collaborates with bbno$. In fact, just last week, the pair announced that they will release their third collaboration, Baby Gravy 3, later this year. A new single from the project, “Goodness Gracious,” just dropped.

Using powerful projectors and 3D animation, we create the illusion that enormous structures are transforming as if by magic. City hall turns into a gingerbread house. The courthouse becomes Stonehenge. The light overpowers the architecture and the effect seems real.

Going to LUMA is like visiting some giant outdoor art gallery where the paintings tower over you 6 stories high. Enjoy it in any order you choose at whatever pace you like. You’ll find projection mapping, light installations, immersive live performance and something new every year. Far more than just spectacle, LUMA is dedicated to the fine art of storytelling–through projection mapping and many other forms of tech-driven artistry. What experiences can we share by transforming the urban landscape into an animated canvas? Help us find out.

Most features at LUMA are completely free to the public. You can just head for Downtown Binghamton and enjoy the show. A few features require tickets that you can buy online in advance.

Experience amazing carvings, a stunning Jack-O'-Lantern tunnel and playful animations come to life right before your eyes - all at a new location in Schenectady, NY!
