A Fun Albany-Area Dance Band

My husband and I were at the Saratoga Raceway in Saratoga Springs, New York, Saturday night, and in addition to betting on the harness races and losing a few bucks in the racino's video slots, we had a lot of fun dancing to a 10-piece band, The Refrigerators, that was performing as part of a Summer Concert Series. If you're shopping for a band to play at your Albany-area wedding, I have to tell you, The Refrigerators were a lot of fun. With a number of vocalists, a full brass section, elaborate percussion and incredible energy, these guys kept the dance floor inside the racino's air-conditioned tent packed. They did an admirable job with everything from Earth Wind & Fire to Maroon 5. We had to laugh, though, when they performed Nelly's "Hot in Here," which I think is destined to become the next song after Kool and the Gang's "Celebration" and "The Macarena" to hit wedding don't play lists! Contact The Refrigerators at (518) 374-3400 or (518) FRIDG-00.
