Award-winning singer-songwriter Joe Brucato's backing band, The Joyous Noise, is tight, precise, and energetic, giving space to the passionate soaring voice of a singer that is possibly one of the finest rock vocalists to emerge locally. The Joyous Noise is an all-star group featuring drummer Levi Bennett, Mark Terranova on bass, guitarist Mike Gladstone, and Brucato's father, Chuck Brucato, a significant figure himself among Rochester-area musicians. The band's repertoire draws from Joe Brucato's three previous releases and new songs from a couple of soon-to-be-released albums.
Joe Brucato & the Joyous Noise perform on Friday, May 29, at Sticky Lips BBQ, 830 Jefferson Road. 9 p.m. $10. stickylipsbbq.com.
