Arts lovers and artists alike are cheering with the news that the arts will take over White Plains with the Serious Fun Arts Fest which runs from October 12-16 with help from I LOVE NY/New York State’s Division of Tourism and from presenting sponsor Montefiore Einstein. In fact, ArtsWestchester just announced its festival headliner will be Brooklyn’s fast-emerging Sammy Rae & The Friends who will deliver a high-energy, spirited and unrestrained show with all-for-one and one-for-all camaraderie, palpable chemistry, deft virtuosity and vocal fireworks for concert-goers. Complete with rhythm and horn sections, keyboards and two backup singers, their sound is a mélange of Sammy’s influences rooted in classic rock, folk and funk, sprinkled with soul and jazz. The band has sold-out shows in the Northeast and beyond, including Terminal 5 in NYC, two consecutive nights at the Boston Royal, 9:30 Club in DC, Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia, The Showbox in Seattle, the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, and many more. NPR Music, the Boston Globe and American Songwriter alike have dubbed her an artist to watch is 2022.
