Saranac Thursdays

881 Edward St.
Utica, New York 13502

What better way to celebrate warm weather?  Unwind after work and enjoy some music and cold Saranac brew.  Every Thursday throughout the summer we’ll be serving up our best drafts and listening to great area bands. Stop down to the brewery Thursday nights and start your weekend early.

The gates at Saranac Thursdays open at 5:30 p.m. with live music from 6-9 p.m. Parking is available in our parking lot behind the Brewery on Columbia Street, and in the parking lot across the street from our Brewery Courtyard on Court Street which can be accessed from Stark Street.  Admission is $5 and benefits our local United Way.

Indie pop/rock duo SIRSY makes music chock full of soul and sincerity with just the right amount of sass. With hook-drenched, resonating melodies and clever, honest lyrics, their songs run the gamut from wildly joyful to utterly heartbreaking. SIRSY is comprised of guitarist Rich Libutti, a lover of The Beatles and Bowie, and singer/drummer Melanie Krahmer, who’s sultry and powerful voice sounds like the love child of Eartha Kitt and Superman.

Reviewers say, “Melanie Krahmer has a stunning, inimitable, voice capable of a lion’s roar and a floaty whisper, with the lungs of a teenage athlete”. She also plays a full drum kit while standing up, handles bass (played on a keyboard with her drumstick), and even throws in an occasional flute solo. Rich Libutti plays everything else, including bass (on a keyboard at his feet); and is the anchor to Melanie’s on stage tornado. Together, the two create a dynamic, full sound, which makes listeners swear there are more than two musicians on stage.
