Tonight (Thursday) it's open mic night at Witherbee's and on Friday, The Gregson Brothers will rock it old school style. Brothers Barry and Blair, both on guitar, started playing together in Schroon Lake back in the early 1970s.
“We used to do gigs at the old Leland House, where the Hudson Headwater Medical Center is today,” Barry told us. By day, Barry is a master furniture artisan, whose works are on display at the Adirondack's Rustics Gallery.
Barry says their early influences were the Beatles, Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Doobie Brothers and the Allman Brothers. So it’s no surprise that songs from those bands, “as well as a few originals and some from Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen” will make up their sets.
The band takes requests. “If we know ‘em, we’ll play ‘em,” Barry said. Jioning the Brothers for this gig are Dave Ochel on bass and Robert Lenue on drums.
Witherbee’s. Friday, June 24. 7:00 – 11:00 pm.
