CFCU Summer Concert Series Presents Noon Fifteen and Kitestring
July 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
This evening we will be featuring two stellar Ithaca-based bands at the CFCU Summer Concert Series:
Progressive soul band Noon Fifteen blends rich vocal harmonies, vintage keyboard and guitar tones, and funky bass and drum grooves into catchy, original songs that are full of surprises. The five-piece is influenced by 1960s California and Liverpool, 1970s Memphis and New Orleans, and the DIY ethos of the internet-powered independent music scene.
Fronted by dynamic vocalist Mandy Goldman and rounded out by versatile singer/instrumentalists Samuel B. Lupowitz, Harry Nichols, Joe Massa, and Phil Shay, Noon Fifteen entertains with witty, earnest lyrics and a Stax Revue’s heart and soul.
Kitestring is a four-piece alternative rock band featuring all-original music that ranges from indie rock to rootsy Americana and soul.
The band centers around the unique talent of singer-songwriter Josh Ross. Ross, whose soulful vocal performance makes it impossible not to feel something, is supported by bassist Jeremy Betterley, guitarist Marty Farchione, and drummer Phil Shay.
Their song styles cover an eclectic range with the unifying thread of memorable melodies, solid musicianship. Kitestring’s sound is stripped down to the elements necessary to convey the message of their songs.
Kitestring last took the stage at the CFCU Summer Concert Series in 2017, where they won the finale of the Battle of the Bands.
Their concert this year will also be their new album release party, your first opportunity to take their new music home with you.
All concerts in this series are free, all ages, and family friendly. Concerts take place on the Bernie Milton Pavilion on the Commons. In case of severe weather, shows may move inside to The Range.
The concert bar will be offering brews by Seneca Beverage Corporation, wines by Wagner Vineyards, and Italian sodas.
Thank you to our 2019 series sponsors CFCU Community Credit Union, Seneca Beverage Corporation, Ithaca Marriott Downtown on the Commons, City Centre Apartments, Wagner Vineyards, Maguire Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Ithaca, Cayuga Radio Group, and The Range.
The official afterparty will be held at Monks On The Commons 8-10 pm.
