TRUMANSBURG, NY – Luke G & the Candyhearts will be swinging through Trumansburg Saturday night to host a party at the Rongovian Embassy.

Grassroots Festival mainstay and Ithaca Journal’s Best Male Singer for 2015, Luke transports us to the 1950s era of doo-wop, rock ‘n’ roll, and sock hop ballads with steely strumming & silvery vocals.

A swell mix of original numbers and not-oft heard singles from the day that are simply fun to dance to yet often nuanced and complex. The Candyhearts are Jason Shegogue on lead guitar, Oona Grady on upright bass & Jesse Lafian on drums.

Place: Rongovian Embassy, 1 West Main Street, Trumansburg, New York
Date: Saturday, June 18th
Time: 9 p.m.
Cover: $8
