On May 29th, it was a unique evening of music and nostalgia as it was an intimate acoustic performance in the “Songs and Stories” concert series. This night featured legendary frontman Art Alexakis of Everclear with Chris Collingwood of Fountains of Wayne, Max Collins of Eve 6, and John Wozniak of Marcy Playground performing their hits and their stories.
This wasn’t just a normal evening of music, this was an intimate setting where the songs that we knew and loved from the 90’s came to life. Fans got to listen to stories from the songs and it was pretty cool when instead of just one singer performing at a time, they would song-swap and share the stage for many of the songs. It was also a night of charity as $1 from each ticket sale went towards the Sweet Musicians Relief Fund to help out musicians, roadies and the like with funds to help cover illnesses and disabilities.
The night ended with a Q and A session. Overall, just a fun night of music!
