When: Thursday, Feb 13, 2020 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Where: The Park Theater, 14 Park Street Glens Falls, NY 12801
Details: The Sweet Remains is an unusual band on today’s music scene headed by three gifted singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and three-part harmonies that define the band’s sound. Driven by strong lyrical and melodic writing, their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk rockers like Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne and John Mayer. However, it is their lush harmonies, that distinguish tSR from the throngs of guitar-toting troubadors and harken back to super-groups of the 60’s and 70’s like CSN, the Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel. Cost: $25 – $30
