From Big Band Swing to the Standards of the Great American Songbook, to more modern classics, Brass-O-Mania recreates the greatest music of the last 75 years, with the full, rich sound of a complete 19 piece Jazz Orchestra. Brass-O-Mania was created in 1994, as a New Orleans-style Street Band and performed for 16 years at the famous Saratoga Race Track. After a few years, the band began to perform as a complete Jazz Orchestra. They draw top instrumental players in the Capital Region and have become widely known for their fun, hip, improvisational style.

- Time7pm & 9:30
- Fee$30 advance, $35 Day of Show
This will be a stunningly diverse program of material from a performer who may be best known for his starring role in the '80s hit television series The Dukes of Hazzard. But his versatility was there from the beginning, and on full display in a career reaching from his television work of the ‘70s and ‘80s to high visibility Broadway roles in 1999’s Annie Get Your Gun and 2008’s Catered Affair (he received Tony Award nominations for both), as well as Chicago, Forty-Second St., Sondheim on Sondheim, and most recently the Tony-Award winning play The Trip To Bountiful starring Cicely Tyson.
But music is Wopat's main passion, and at a time when male vocal artists have been in fairly short supply, his singing is a welcome addition. “Performing these songs the way we do in I’ve Got Your Number is the most creative thing I do,” Tom concludes. “It’s extremely satisfying and fulfilling. And as long as it feels that way, I’m going to keep right on doing it."

“To call Rhett a Bluesman would be an understatement, but to call him just a Bluesman would be a mistake” - Pete Hoff, “Uncle Pete’s Blues Party”, WNTI 91.9 FM, Hackettstown, NJ

Expect no less than a high-octane, house rockin’ live show from this progressive modern power trio whose dynamic synergy is fueled by passion and raw emotion. Compelling rhythms from bassist Doug Howard and drummer Bo Matheson will provide the foundation for Rhett’s sizzling guitar and heartfelt vocals. Together they take their audience on a soulful journey stimulating both mind and spirit. Simply stated, this is the next step in the musical evolution of electric blues.
Spanning more than four decades of innovative musical artistry Rhett Tyler captivates an audience with his live performances whether simple chord changes, subtle single string bends or a mind boggling blistering run of notes. He has an uncanny natural ability to draw listeners into his world by bearing his heart, soul, and passion for all to experience. Rhett has independently released eight CDs since 1993 including his most recent entitled “The Rhythm The Power The Blue” and was honored for his commitment and dedication in 2011 with an induction into the Blues Hall of Fame as Master Blues Artist from NY.

Donald Wilcock, music reviewer and author of the Buddy Guy biography “Damn Right I’ve Got The Blues”, may have said it best, ”Rhett is not just proficient throughout the spectrum of today’s blues, he’s a universal master of all… You gotta hear him live!”
