Summer's over, at least as far as a gigging musician is concerned. We've all moved our shows indoors now for the most part and it's time to bust out the Northfaces, Uggs and other fall accessories on your way to the gig! Each week local bands and artists are showcasing their talents right here in the CNY area and engaging in a friendly competition for your attention and if you'd like to know where your favorites are or want to mix it up, here's the list of the area's club listings starting tonight thru Sunday!

Keith James All Star Band

Here at Oldiez 96 we aren't just about playing the classic hits by multi-millionaire artists, but there is plenty of talent flying under the radar right here in Central New York. Many of our local musicians may never see the big time, but they're big to us.
