Syracuse’s music scene has always been vibrant and featured some incredible acts in the past and local favorites Soul Risin’ continue to make their mark as one of the best in the region. This Saturday at The Westcott Theater, Soul Risin’ releases their third album Rise & Fall. Recorded in recorded in April at More Sound Recording Studio and engineered by Jason (Jocko) Randle and Andrew Greacen, the album is a fantastic effort (review here). You can pick download or stream the album at www.soulrisin.bandcamp.com or pick up a copy of the physical album and download MP3s at cdbaby.com
On Saturday at The Westcott Theater, Doors open at 7pm with Boots N’ Shorts on shortly after 8pm, then Brother Joscephus and The Love Revival Revolution Orchestra followed by Soul Risin’ taking the stage shortly after 10pm
Adding to the release of the album is the cause behind the show. From ticket and album sales, Soul Risin’ is raising money to help a local Syracuse woman who was recently diagnosed with cancer, has no health insurance, so as to help her family out with basic needs. Bryan Weinsztok, lead singer of the group lost his father a year ago on October 16th, hence the album release date this week. In order to help the family meet their needs with bills and groceries, Weinsztok is looking to raise $1000 or more to benefit the family. Keeping charity close to the cause is noble, especially on such an eventful night already.
Take a listen to the free stream on Bandcamp and enjoy the music. Soul Risin’ is known for putting on a solid live performance with something for everyone, making for a great regional jam show.
