An Evening of Roots & Rockabilly Aug. 19 at Caffe Lena

The Bluebillies, Marty Wendell – an evening at Caffe Lena Aug. 19. The Bluebillies, Marty Wendell – an evening at Caffe Lena Aug. 19.

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Marty Wendell grew up in Ticonderoga listening to music on an old Philco radio, flooded with a mix of sounds from rockabilly to gospel. His earliest stab at stardom came via his first record - “Hey Hey Mama”-  which sold more than 10,000 copies and earned him a slot in the 1960s as an opening act for the likes of Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins. 

The Bluebillies meanwhile - don’t just sing country songs, they embody them – as their bio points out.   Husband and wife team Mark and Melody Guarino, along with Frank Orsini on fiddle and guitarist Greg Bucking, bring their blend of country, bluegrass and folk with traditional style, sound and spirit.

Together, The Bluebillies and Marty Wendell present an evening of Roots & Rockabilly Friday, Aug. 19 at Caffe Lena. 

Tickets are $12.50–$25 for the all-ages show. To purchase tickets and more information go to
