Classic rock and blues at Unity Hall


BARNEVELD — Unity Hall kicks off the summer with an upbeat evening of classic rock by Central NY’s Better Than Bowling and hot blues from Syracuse’s Colin Aberdeen at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 17, in the hall’s historic auditorium at 101 Vanderkemp Ave. at Barneveld.

Doors will open at 7:15 p.m.

Better Than Bowling is a five-piece classic rock band that delivers powerful vocal harmonies, pitch-perfect solos, and a journey through musical time and space.

Their repertoire ranges from Crosby Stills & Nash and The Indigo Girls to Tom Petty and The Ventures to Jimi Hendrix.

This energetic band includes Arty Lenin, founding member of power pop bands The Flashcubes and Screentest and recipient of the Syracuse Area Music Awards (SAMMYS) Best Rock Instrumentalist award.

Also featured is singer Sharon Allen, whose strong, passionate voice and intense delivery have made her a central New York favorite with a devoted fan base.

George Newton brings his unique pedal steel guitar vocals to the band, which are complemented by the talented Tom Navagh on electric bass and Wayne Stevens on drums.

Colin Aberdeen is the frontman of genre-defying roots rockers Los Blancos.

He won a variety of accolades during his career, including a Sammy Award for Best Blues Singer, and repeated Favorite Guitarist and Singer honors in Syracuse New Times reader polls. As a singer/songwriter/guitarist, Aberdeen is active with local bands such as The Westcott Jugsuckers, The Barking Loungers and Los Blancos.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door for the general public and $20 for Unity Hall members.

Advance tickets can be purchased at and at the Adirondack Cheese Company in Barneveld. Proof of COVID vaccination is required. Masks are recommended.
