On Saturday, February 24th St. Susan Center will again open its doors to host our Winter Soup and a Song Series.
The entertainment will be provided by The Probables. The Probables are a feel-good, folk-grass band from the rolling hills of Western New York. The band formed in March of 2016 and hit the ground running by releasing their first EP in July of the same year. Their dedication and passion for the music can be heard from deep within their original songs that are only one part of their repertoire. With traditional bluegrass and rock -n- roll roots, the group’s goal is to fuse Folk, Bluegrass, and Roots-Rock music to deliver a unique soul reaching sound to their listeners.
The Probables consist of 4 members but often play as a fiver man band or even a duo. Steve Johnson, the lead singer, is the former frontman of Big Leg Emma. Tom Hodges, the former lead guitar player from Big Leg Emma currently plays the mandolin and sings high harmonies, while Dylan Derby, formally of The Derbines is on stand-up Bass. Matt Gronquist, formerly of The Naked Apes, plays the accordion and fiddle while complimenting Steve and Tom’s vocals in a beautiful three-part harmony.
The group’s distinctive name was decided upon during a booking exchange with the organizer of the annual Great Blue Heron Music Festival in Sherman, NY. The band had not yet chosen a name when they expressed interest in making a debut at the annual festival. The organizer of the festival, responded, “I’ll probably book you, so I guess we should just call you ‘The Probables”. The rest is history.
In addition to a great show, there will be 5 specialty soups all created by the Kitchen Staff at St. Susan Center
The event runs from 6-8pm at 31 Water Street in Jamestown and tickets are available at the door, $10.00 for Adults and Children $ 5.00 ages (6-12). All proceeds will benefit St. Susan Center, which has been serving our community since 1984.
