Join your friends and neighbors as the U Club welcomes back one of our favorite performers from 8:00 - 10:00 p.m. on Friday, April 3.

Geo is a versatile artist whose solo shows can go from an intimate performance to a house rocking one-man band.

Vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Geo has been performing professionally for 30 years. His experience at entertaining audiences of all ages shines through the minute he hits the stage. Geo plays the music from the 1940s to today, a mix of Rock, Pop, R&B, Irish Pub Standards and Special Occasion Songs.

Geo can be seen working with other performers such as Johnny Rabb and Graham Tichy. When he's not on stage Geo teaches elementary school music as well as private lessons.

Dinner will be served until 9:00 p.m., please call 518-463-1151 for reservations. The performance is free and open to the public as part of the University Club’s participation in 1st Friday, the arts walk that showcases the lively art scene in downtown Albany.
