Park Coffee House

The talented local and regional performers represent a rich variety of acoustic music, which has been the 
hallmark of Park Coffee House:

    Dyer Switch Band, a group known for their dynamic stage and a lively brand of acoustic music, returns to Park Coffee House in Holland Patent on Saturday, September 22 at 7:30 PM.
     This versatile, engaging group brings together hard-driving traditional bluegrass tunes, their own powerful originals, and fresh versions of songs from other genres.
Performing since 1992, Dyer Switch has been inducted into the New York State Country Music Hall of Fame. The band plays at many bluegrass festivals and venues from New England, to the mid west, and the south. They have been featured on many radio stations in their travels, including on the “Hudson River Sampler” show on Northeast Public Radio, heard locally on 90.3 FM.
         The band’s distinctive vocal and instrumental talents showcase the impressive skills of its members. JoAnn Sifo plays rhythm guitar and delivers vocals from gritty tunes to sweet ballads. Bruce Barker is the rock solid foundation of the band. He has played guitar for groups ranging from blues/rock to jazz/rock fusion. The high tenor voice of Bob Bates adds richness to the Dyer Switch sound. He is a Julliard graduate, a Nashville recording artist, and appeared on the Grand Ole Opry with Charlie Louvin. Chris Schultz is the son of a banjo player, picking up some Scruggs 3-finger picking along the way. When not playing with Dyer Switch, he loves practicing in the company of his two cats.
         Dyer Switch Band delivers their renditions of bluegrass and original songs with high energy and authenticity. This year’s appearance at Park Coffee House is bound to be rousing entertainment by a national band.
        The doors open at 7:00 PM for the 7:30 PM performance. Admission is $12.00, $5.00 for students, and no charge for children 12 and under.
        Homemade desserts, prepared and served by Park Coffee House volunteers, will be available for a donation before the show and during the intermission.
Park Coffee House is located in the village of Holland Patent, just off Main Street (NYS Route 365), across from the park, at the historic Twin Churches.
        On October 27, The Cadleys are returning to Park Coffee House, followed by Nick Piccininni and John Delaney on November 10. A Local Favorites Fundraiser on December 1 will close the fall concerts of the 2018-2019 season.
