We are reuniting local bands from the late 60s through the 70s for a one-night engagement!
Every day, 95.3 / 103.9 The Dinosaur plays the biggest hits of all time, bringing back all of your best memories. Now, we're taking it a step further with the History of Syracuse Rock and Roll: Then and Now! We're teaming up with renowned local music historian Ron Wray to reunite at least a dozen local bands from the late 60s through the 70s for a special one-night-only engagement.
Once a month for at least 12 months, we'll select one band to perform live on stage at a local venue. Bands will play a one-hour set, or two 45-minute sets with an intermission. Performances will be professionally recorded and band members will receive a copy of their performance on CD. Afterward, Ron Wray and his committee will select one song from each concert to be included in the brand new album, "History of Syracuse Rock and Roll: Then and Now!" Subcat Studios will have each band record that one track in their Armory Square studios. The finished product will be a modern take on the many volumes of the "History of Syracuse Music" albums (pictured, right) that were released decades ago.
