Oh Hudson! A Music and Poetry celebration of the Hudson River Valley
"David Gonzalez' epic poem Oh Hudson! has been the centerpiece of programs at the Hudson River Museum celebrating the culture and history of the Hudson Valley. He has not only entertained, but also, through his unique multi-media artistry, inspired our audiences to care about the environment and their place in it, in the tradition of Pete Seeger and his fellow travelers." ~ Saralinda Lichtblau, Hudson River Museum
Upstate Rubdown is an acoustic septet drawing inspiration from every corner (and decade) of America's musical heritage.
"Upstate Rubdown is an acoustic septet drawing inspiration from every corner (and decade) of America's musical heritage. "Pulling from the greatest corners of American music, this group has the power to get feet moving with or without amplification. Like fresh-farmed vegetables, their music is as organic as it is good for you. From foot-stomping bass, highlighted by the slap of a cajon, to the familiar strums of the mandolin over a wailing saxophone – there’s so much going on instrumentally that when the harmonious lead vocalists chime in, the result is nothing short of a homegrown hurricane of sound." ~ Otis Mountain Get Down
