The Tralf Upcoming Shows

The Lake presents Jesse Colin Young
Friday October 12
Tickets for $20 including all charges
Buffalo, NY 09/06/07—Folk-rock singer Jesse Colin Young will perform at The Tralf in downtown Buffalo, NY on Friday October 12.

Jesse Colin Young got his start as a folksinger in Greenwich Village coffeehouses in the early '60s, releasing two major-label albums, The Soul of a City Boy (April 1964) and Young Blood (March 1965). He met guitarist Jerry Corbitt in Cambridge, MA, and with keyboardist/guitarist Lowell "Banana" Levinger and drummer Joe Bauer, they formed the Youngbloods, initially playing in the jug band, good-time style of the Lovin' Spoonful. Signed to RCA, they released their debut single, Corbitt's "Grizzly Bear," a chart entry, in November 1966, followed by their self-titled debut album in February 1967. The album featured the group's version of Dino Valenti and Bob Cullen's idealistic folk anthem "Get Together," which was released as a single in July and also made the charts. Earth Music (November 1967) followed.

Young recorded a solo album, Together (March 1972), and due to its success he disbanded the Youngbloods after their final album, High on a Ridge Top (November 1972). He returned to recording in 1987 with The Highway Is for Heroes on the short-lived Cypress Records label. He launched his own Ridgetop Music label, releasing Makin' It Real (October 1993), and followed with Swept Away (September 1994), Crazy Boy (1995), a compilation, and Sweetwater (June 1996), a live album. Meanwhile, he had acquired the rights to his Mercury, Warner Brothers, and Elektra albums and began to reissue them

Star 102 presents Jon McLaughlin
Tuesday October 30
Tickets for $10 including all charges
Buffalo, NY 09/06/07—Singer-Songwriter John McLaughlin will perform with his band at The Tralf in downtown Buffalo, NY on Tuesday October 30.

Born and raised in Anderson, IN, Jon McLaughlin (and all of his siblings) began taking classical piano lessons at an early age. Though he lost interest in it during high school, not helped by an accident that injured both wrists, during his senior year he realized how fully he could incorporate the instrument into the pop music he enjoyed more. McLaughlin decided to attend the local music college, where he studied piano and spent his free time writing songs, eventually winning a competition at the school that allowed him to release his self-titled debut in 2004.

The following year the EP Songs I Wrote and Later Recorded came out, and shortly after, McLaughlin was given the opportunity to audition for three major labels. One of them, Island, signed him, and in 2007 Indiana, an album that included re-recorded versions of two songs from his first effort, hit shelves. Later that year McLaughlin made an appearance singing a song in the movie Enchanted.Friday October 12, 2007
