NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle resident Artie Tobia , a singer songwriter, says he's seen tons of shows at the Tarrytown Music Hall but this Friday, Feb. 19, he'll finally be on stage rather than in the crowd.
Tobia will be the opening act for Tanya Tucker, an opportunity that presented itself earlier this month.
"I've been wanting to perform there for years," he said. "It's probably one of the best venues in this part of New York, and I'm thrilled."
Tobia, who is known for Roots Rock Americana music, wants to appeal to Tucker's audience and so is mulling over ideas about what to perform. His newest album, Aberdeen, came out this past summer and made it to number 13 on the AAA/AMA chart. The title track, Aberdeen, was picked as one of the top 10 songs of the week by Alternate Root Magazine.
"I may do some songs from Aberdeen, or some of my older songs," he said. "It will, however, be all my own stuff."
