Chris Bethmann/Matt Landon/Scott Kwiatek

Doors 7pm, Music 8pm

Chris Bethmann and his band of Rochester expats brings his Americana Rock vibe to Rochester's legendary roots haunt for first time this year. Bethmann's original act, honed through gig after gig as a local troubadour, has seen his bookings extend through New England and New York City this year. Teacher by day and songwriter by night, Bethmann's songs feature vivid imagery and stories of day to day life and emotions. His latest release, Naked Bourbon (Dec 2018, self released) is a rock 'n roll testament to coming of age in the millennial era.

Bethmann will be celebrating the release of a new single, Long After Midnight, accompanied by his band Eric Metzgar (drums) and Scott Kwiatek (bass).
