Five decades of fun!
Syracuse bandleader Mickey Vendetti is preparing to mark his golden anniversary in the music biz on. Saturday Oct. 23 at Le Moyne Manor, 629 Old Liverpool Road. The celebration of rock'n'roll through the decades begins at 7 p.m. with an opening performance by TimeLine.
Tickets cost $10 and are available at Gilligan's Pub, 3601 James St. in Eastwood, or call Mickey directly at 345-1002.
But you can hear Mickey sing a few tunes today, on Liverpool Public Library's "Local Artist Spotlight" program, which streams online daily at 1 and 7 p.m. On the show, I interview Mick about his five decades as an area entertainer, and we play tracks from his two recent discs, "The Best of the Goodtime Band Live" and "Sentimental Journey." A veteran keyboardist and singer, Vendetti estimates that over the years he has played more than 4,000 wedding receptions and private parties.
