On Friday September 16th Ray Brothers Barbeque is generously sponsoring Eat Out for the Arts, a fundraiser for the Earlville Opera House. Brothers Tucker and Colin Ray have generously promised to donate a portion of the evening’s profits to support arts programming at the EOH, allowing patrons to enjoy a delicious dinner while supporting the arts in their community. In addition to the meal, patrons will be treated to the music of The Ramblin’ Brooks, performing live from 8 PM.
Ray Brothers Barbeque opened in 2014 and is located on Route 20 in Bouckville, just a few miles north of Hamilton. Brothers Tucker and Colin opened the restaurant after many years of experience working in the food industry. They have found a new flame for their passion in the form of slow-cooked meats. “We are an authentic, slow-cooked barbeque style restaurant. Everything on the menu is smoked over local woods for periods of 5 to 14 hours.”
Formed less than a year ago, The Ramblin’ Brooks are already drawing crowds and conjuring comparisons to classic groups like The Band, Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers and The Byrds while on stage. Led by Adam Brooks Dudding (a performing songwriter with 5 independent albums and two decades of shows and national tours to his credit), Brooks Dudding is joined by band members from seasoned regional sweethearts Rabbit In The Rye (Brendan O’Connor, Alex Lavon) and Son Bully (Colin Nevison, Zach Collins).
Community events like this one allow the Earlville Opera House to continue bringing world-quality live musical performances and art installations to central New York, and facilitates the art education workshops and classes hosted for adults and children of all ages.
