Dino hosts Two-Hour Delay

If the band Two-Hour Delay doesn't start right on time, at least they warned you with their timely moniker. In any case, the twangy quartet is set to take the stage at 10 p.m. (or so), Friday Jan. 21, at the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, 246 W. Willow St. at the corner of South Franklin, downtown; 476-4937. Admission is free.

The bluesy jam band features Tim Burns on acoustic guitar, Bob Gaus on electric guitar, Tom Mattern on bass and Brian Welch on drums.

Garnet Rogers sings Friday

Born in Hamilton, Ontario to parents of Nova Scotian descent, Garnet spent countless hours in front of the old floor-model radio listening to Grand Ol' Opry broadcasts and harmonizing with his brother. He taught himself the flute, violin and guitar. At 18, Rogers hit the road as a full-time working musician with his brother, Stan. Garnet acted as producer and arranger for his older brother from 1973 to 1983, until Stan died tragically in a plane crash. Since then, Garnet has courageously established himself as a formidable solo artist.

Now 55, Rogers will perform at 8 p.m. Friday Jan. 21, May Memorial Unitarian Universalist Church, 3800 East Genesee St., in Syracuse.

The latest of his 10 solo discs, "Get a Witness," was named one of the Top Ten Folk CDs of 2007 by the Boston Globe.

Friday's concert is hosted by The Folkus Project. Admission costs $15. For reservations, call 440-7444.
