Have you heard of local country music fan Sue Bogucki? She was a huge presence on the Capital Region country music scene until mid-November of this year, when she unexpectedly passed away. The Saratoga Casino Hotel is hosting a tribute concert for her this month with well-known local country bands performing.
Artists in attendance will be Big Sky Country, Skeeter Creek, Moonshine Junkies, the Jason Wicks Band, Vinny Saj Band, and the Back 40 Band featuring Mark Pierre. The event will be hosted by Kevin Richards of 100.9 The Cat.
Tickets are $20, are still available, and can be purchased at the hotel’s website; you can also purchase them at the Saratoga Club inside the hotel.
All proceeds from the event will be going to Sue’s family to offset funeral costs.
