Hair of the Dog, Trench Town Oddities to headline event to benefit Plattsburgh YMCA

Hair Of The Dog has performed in venues across the country, playing several major cities and even across the globe in Ireland, getting in touch with the roots of their Celtic sound. Rockin' Out for the Y will mark the fourth time the band has played at the Naked Turtle, and it's something the band is looking forward to, said Bedrosian.

"We love Plattsburgh. It's a fabulous town filled with fun people," he said, adding Haggerty is an alum of the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Trench Town Oddities - a band which has been described as "an eclectic blend of pop, funk, rock, blues and reggae"- is also no stranger to the area, having played before at Olive Ridley's.

The band consists of Sean Harley and Steve Restinetti on guitar and vocals, Todd Harrington and Randy Lalonde on drums and percussion, and Nick Kalil on bass and vocals.

Harley said the band is also looking forward to their gig at the Naked Turtle this Sunday, giving them a chance to connect with their fan base this side of the border and for the chance to expand their following.

"When we play a show a the U.S. side, people are out to have a good time and truly see and appreciate the length we go to entertain them," he said. "And, honestly, it's a great feeling when someone comes up to you at the end of the night and tells you how much they've enjoyed your set."

The band's sound conjures up images of "summer fun, beaches and tropical cocktails," said Harley, with people listening to them likely noticing their influences like the Black Crowes, Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, Sublime, and even System of a Down.

Trench Town Oddities is all about doing something different, said Harley, picking songs that other people aren't doing if its a cover, changing the arrangement of a song to fit their sound and "just being ourselves."
