ALBANY, N.Y. - The City of Albany kicks off the first Alive at Five concert of the summer Thursday night.
The concert is free on Thursday evenings from 5-8 p.m. and will be held outdoors at Albany Riverfront Park amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve.
The first concert will be The Fabulous Thunderbirds featuring Troy-based band Super 400.
About The Fabulous Thunderbirds: They have been the quintessential American band, incorporating Cajun, blues, rock and R&B sounds into barnstorming signature hits like "Tuff Enuff", "Wrap It Up", "How Do You Spell Love" and "Powerful Stuff". Formed in Austin, Texas in 1974, the Grammy-nominated band is fronted by founding member Kim Wilson, an astounding performer that blues legend Muddy Waters called his favorite harmonica player and vocalist. The Thunderbirds are currently flying high on the release of their new album, On The Verge, released in March.
About Super 400: Capital Region favorites Super 400 have built up a loyal following worldwide with their classic power trio approach to original rock and roll, selling out shows across North America and Europe. Their hometown of Troy has designated February 25 as "Super 400 Day" in recognition of the band's accomplishments.
The rain location for this year's series is the Palace Theatre, located at 19 Clinton Avenue in Albany. Moving to the rain location is determined each week on the morning of the event to ensure proper set-up time.
