Food trucks gather for Octoberfest at Stanley
A variety of food trucks will assemble in the City of Utica parking lot next to The Stanley Theater on Genesee Street from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, for Octoberfest.
Along with the food and beverages for sale, there will be local music provided by The Old Main Duo, The Other Guys (Mike Peek & Rocky Graziano), The Cathy Timian Band and The Brian Mulkerne Band. The event is sponsored by Adorino Construction.
Hailing from the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, The Old Main has drawn comparisons to bands such as The Avett Brothers, The Band and Dawes, while retaining a sound and style of their own. Acoustic guitar, harmonica, banjo, upright bass, drums and vocal harmonies make up The Old Main’s acoustic sound.
Rocky Graziano and Mike Peek of the band Soundbarrier are an acoustic duo performing modern and pop rock, as well as 1980s, 90s, classic and oldies.
Timian is known for her bluesy sound for more than a decade. Her influences include Buddy Guy, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Beth Hart, BB King, Eric Clapton, Bessie Smith. Rounding up the Cathie Timian Band are Scott Wood on guitar, Neon John Handzel on bass and Claude Schuyler on drums. On top of hosting open mic nights and performing at various local venues, Timian is active in the local music scene.
Mulkerne is a guitarist and singer in central New York. The Brian Mulkerne Band is comprised of Mulkerne on guitar, vocals, and harmonica; George Deveny on slide and lead guitar and vocals, Ken McConnell Jr. on bass; and C. Oscar Crandall on drums. The Stanley will also offer free tours throughout the event. The event is free.
