From the Memorial Auditorium to the Stanley Center for the Arts and Saranac Thursday, Utica is a stop for lots of national touring musical acts. Lucky for us the art of bootlegging is alive and well. Thanks to YouTube and some smart phone and camera-totting concertgoers we've got lots of these magical musical moments preserved. Here are some of the best concerts that have happened in Utica recently.
Ride My See-SawMoody Blues
The Moody Blues closed their July 2010 show at the Stanley with 'Ride My See-Saw'
Say Hey (I Love You)Michael Franti
Michael Franti brought his positive and high energy vibes to Saranac Thursday in June of 2011. Here's his signature song.
Jason Mraz performs this song with Colbie Calliat on his CD and he handles the solo version fine during his show at the Stanley Theatre.
Sentimental StreetNight Ranger
Fun piano play from the 80s rockers caught live during Saranac Thursday during summer 2010.
If I Die YoungThe Band Perry
The Band Perry was part of the programming at Mohawk Valley Community College during the spring 2011 semester.
