Oswego Music Hall Guest Curator Series Takes the Stage April 5 featuring A Night with Hunter Cazz & Friends

OSWEGO – The Oswego Music Hall continues the Guest Curator Series— which enables new programs proposed and curated by community members, representing demographics and artistic genre not typical in Music Hall programming. Oswego Music Hall is proud to present A Night with Hunter Cazz and Friends on Saturday, April 5 at 7:30pm; doors open at 7pm.

 

Hunter Cazz is a musician/singer from Long Island. His debut single “Proud As I Can Be” was released on May 30, 2022. His first EP “What’s It All About” was released on June 11, 2022. He headlined his first-ever show at 89 North Music Venue in Patchogue, NY, on July 2, 2022.

 

Performing with Cazz at the Music Hall include: Angelo Antonelli on keys/synths; Elijah Gebera on bass; Nicholas Thielemann on guitar; Chandler Carter on drums; Anthony Vargas on trumpet; and Brandon Vincent, featured singer.

Cazz has always dreamed of being a performer since he was a kid and won’t stop until that dream comes true. “If you have a dream that just so happens to be your passion, go for it, and don’t stop reaching for the stars. There’s gonna be dark days along the way that make you want to give up, but don’t. Mistakes and errors are what make you human, so be human but, most importantly, be you”, Hunter.

Tickets are on sale online now at https://www.oswegomusichall.org/ ($14-$16), or at the rivers end Bookstore in Oswego, although you may be able to get tickets at the door if it is not sold out. All college students’ admission (with a current college ID) is a donation. The community is encouraged to buy tickets early to ensure a seat.

Guest Host, Mark Zane, will lead off Open Mic Friday on April 12 and will be followed by performers who sign up that night. Doors open at 6:30 with sign-ups taking place then and throughout the evening, as space allows. Musicians typically play three songs each.

 

Mark Zane was born and raised in the small rust belt city of Utica and now calls its larger neighbor to the west, Syracuse, home. The struggle of life in old industrial cities can be heard in some of the songs that appear on Mark’s debut 2008 CD titled, American Hunger, which features a blend of folk, rock, and even a little country thrown into these 12 original songs. American Hunger was nominated for a 2009 SAMMY (Syracuse-Area Music Award) award in the Americana category. Visit www.reverbnation.com/markzane for videos and further information.

All ages and experience levels are welcome. Budding performers, singer-songwriters and musicians of all genres are given an opportunity to perform in a supportive environment using cutting edge professional sound and lighting equipment.

 

Big Sky Quartet appears on The Main Stage on April 13. Big Sky Quartet is an award-winning, original four-piece roots/folk music act based in central Pennsylvania, now in its fifteenth year of music-making and performing throughout the Eastern United States. The band has been recognized for the best harmonies in the region, and recently was awarded Best Trio (2019), Best Folk Band (2021), and the Best Album of the Year in 2021 (Red Fire Rising) by the Central PA Music Awards. All four members come together to bring you music that has been called “beautiful, deep, uplifting, and moving,” and “a sound that feels like you’re hanging outside on a warm summer evening.” And in fact, there’s nowhere more the members of Big Sky Quartet would like to be. “Well-crafted songs, lush harmonies, and a sound that feels like you’re hanging outside on a warm summer evening”, The Burg Magazine.

The atmosphere is intimate with candle-lit tables surrounding the stage with light refreshments available. Cash or check only at the door.
