We went to the Oswego Music Hall on Lake Street in Oswego and enjoyed the easy grooves of The Sim Redmond Band.
Overlooking Lake Ontario, the Music Hall offers a spectacular view of the setting sun. It has a great “coffee house” atmosphere and the volunteer staff is warm and welcoming. Candles and fresh flowers adorned the tables and homemade refreshments were available.
Attracting a diverse audience, The Sim Redmond Band played a smooth blend of folk rock, reggae and world music. The sound was entirely charming and organic. We were enchanted by their sweet vocal harmonies and the rhythmic beat of their drum jams.
The friendly and intimate mood of the Music Hall, coupled with the non-traditional sounds of the artists made for an enjoyable evening. It had the distinct feeling of being on a mini-break, despite the fact that we had never left home.
If you were not able to join us, the Oswego Music Hall is located in the Ontario Center for the Performing Arts (known locally as the McCrobie Building) on Lake Street in Oswego, New York. For more than 30 years, this all-volunteer organization has hosted an incredible line-up of artists in a wide variety of musical genres. Performances are scheduled every other Saturday night from September to June and reservations are suggested. For a list of upcoming shows or to make reservations, call 315-342-1733.
