Patchogue Jam 6

Here’s what you’re doing this Friday night (you’re welcome).

Patchogue Jam is an annual event put on through a collaboration of the folks who bring you Live in the Lobby at the Patchogue Theatre, and Acoustic Long Island. It is a yearly must-see event on the big stage at the Patchogue Theatre featuring Long Island’s best original music.

This year’s performers…

Kerry Kearney, a longtime local favorite who plays a mean slide guitar. Incidentally he is coming back strong from a major hit from Sandy… And anyone who is still out gigging constantly even though their house got bashed in by nature deserves major respect.

Cassandra House, a young Patchogue-based singer/songwriter with a big voice and an alternacountry flavor. Pick up a copy of her recent debut EP “Night Owl” at the show, if you haven’t already.

Butchers Blind, an Americana/alt-country band whose songs are the perfect fit for your next cross-country road trip.

Iridesense, a tight and catchy pop-rock group celebrating 20 years on the scene and releasing a new album this summer.

All told you don’t want to miss it.

Tickets are $18 and available from the Patchogue Theatre’s website.
