Russ Kennedy, a popular singer-musician who appears regularly at clubs and other musical venues throughout the Capital Region, will be our special musical guest at the SRC 55th Anniversary Dinner on March 5.
Russ’s rich vocals and strong guitar playing make up his trademark sound, whether he is performing Classic Oldies, Adult Contemporary, EZ Listening, Country or Irish tunes.
In his 30 years of entertaining, Russ has performed alongside Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame member Dion Dimucci of Dion and The Belmonts; Don McLean, author of the anthemic “American Pie”; the legendary folk duo Aztec Two Step, and Mick Avory of The Kinks.
We think you’ll enjoy the medley of 1960s music he will be performing at our gala in honor of our 1960 chartering.
If you haven’t submitted your event reservations yet, be sure to do so ASAP by contacting April Dowd.

We also have a few surprises for you, so the evening — which will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5, at the Comfort Inn just off I-90 Exit 10 — promises to be a memorable one. Please make a point of joining us, and bringing a friend, family member, neighbor, potential Rotarian or anyone you may owe a nice dinner.
