Classic Rock fans, fasten your seat belts because America (the band) is coming to Oneonta!  Can you tell I'm excited?  As far as I know, America has never come to our area so this is a rare opportunity.  Why now?  It's all part of the "Weekend Smash", which is a three day event, August 23rd through the 25th, presented by Outlaw Family Fun and the Otsego County Chamber of Commerce.

All weekend events take place at the home of the Oneonta Outlaws baseball team, Damaschke Field.  America will be celebrating 40 years of music with fans on the 25th in the ball park starting at 5pm (gates open at 3pm).  Tickets are on sale now for $25 and are available by calling the Oneonta Outlaws office at (607) 432-6326 or you can stop by.

Just to give you a taste of the show, here's a video of America performing live, "A Horse With No Name".
