UTICA, N.Y.-While there may not be Woodstock 50 happening this year, there still was some music from Woodstock playing Friday.
The Stanley Theater held a concert Friday night, paying tribute to musicians who performed at the Woodstock festival back in 1969.
Over 25 local artists took turns performing some of the biggest songs by the original artists.
Tributes to The Who, Santana, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Band, Blood, and Sweat and Tears were among the songs heard at the festival.
“These are 37 wonderful local musicians, who some of them grew up with some of this music so, they are bringing it out to the public and everybody is having a great time”. said Linda Iannone, the Director of Booking and Events at The Stanley Theater.
Proceeds from the concert benefit The Stanley, to help upkeep the Theater.
