Jim Gaudet & the Railroad Boys
July 15, 2021 at 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Welcome back! Come celebrate live audiences returning The Linda at the Open for Business Concert Series. OFB features the home-grown outstanding performers of the Capital Region, special guests and you. Let’s do this.
Jim Gaudet and The Railroad Boys make one feel as if they’re traveling in time, maybe back to Louisiana in 1963. Mel Guarino of The Bluebillies said, “There is no other band that I know that can sound so modern and yet so classic and nostalgic. It’s at once, “Old Timey” and “Timeless”, echoing the sound and feel of maybe Hank Williams or the Stanley Brothers, with a “hill-billy” edge.”
Opening for The Railroad boys will be special guest spoken word w/guitar artist Mike Jurkovic.
