Don’t miss the chance to witness the magic of 10,000 Maniacs as they celebrate their over 40 Years of music at Paramount Hudson Valley on May 11! Hailing from the blue-collar poetry of Jamestown, New York, this band has stayed true to their roots, delivering real-life stories through honest and hardworking music.
Having covered vast musical ground over four decades, 10,000 Maniacs has evolved from cult-stardom to international acclaim, solidifying their place as a cornerstone alternative band. The upcoming live show at Paramount Hudson Valley promises to be a journey through their entire catalogue, featuring the timeless sound and spirit that has captivated audiences throughout their remarkable career.
What makes this performance even more special is that the lineup still boasts four of the six original members who co-founded the band in 1981 – keyboardist Dennis Drew, guitarist John Lombardo, bassist Steven Gustafson, and drummer Jerome Augustyniak. The rhythm section remains as strong as ever, providing the backbone for the band’s signature sound.
Adding to the familial atmosphere is frontwoman Mary Ramsey, who seamlessly stepped into her role 27 years ago after touring and recording with the Maniacs as a viola player and backup singer since 1991. With their rich history and enduring passion for storytelling through music, 10,000 Maniacs promises a night filled with nostalgia, authenticity, and the magic that has defined them for four incredible decades. Get ready for an unforgettable evening on May 11 at Paramount Hudson Valley!
