When: Monday, June 24 at 7:30.  Doors open at 6:45

How lucky can we get?  Well, it turns out that we've just hit the jackpot with The James King Band coming to Poughkeepsie on Monday, June 24.  This band is one of our favorites and James King is one of the best traditional bluegrass singers on the scene today.

Seating is limited to only 70 people.  If you want to be sure to hear this band in an intimate setting, reserve your tickets right now.  This concert almost upon us and I, for one, can hardly wait!!!

James is a nine-time winner of the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music's Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year award. To those folks, King's emotive renderings of songs such as She Took His Breath Away, Bed by the Windowand 30 Years of Farming exemplify the essence of what bluegrass music is all about.

New Jam Location

Woo Hoo!! The HVBA jams have a new permanent home at Christ Church in Poughkeepsie, NY.  This has been the home for our major concerts, workshops, and monthly Showcase Series.  The acoustics are fabulous and the space is huge.  We are so, so lucky and so grateful to Christ Church for offering us this wonderful venue.

Join us on Wednesday, June 19th when we inaugurate the Nave with the sounds of bluegrass music!!  Same days...same time.
