Twilight on the Rails rolls Saturday at D&U

There’s no better way to spend a lovely summer evening than on the Delaware & Ulster Railroad listening to great music as you roll along beside the East Branch of the Delaware River. On Saturday, September 4, the Blues Maneuver will take to the rails on the historic D&URR from 6-8:30 p.m. for a slow moving scenic train ride that everyone will enjoy.

The Blues Maneuver Band has been one of the Catskill region’s premier special event bands for more than a decade, performing at clubs, concerts, music festivals, weddings, parties, corporate events, reunions and other special occasions from Massachusetts to New York City.

Based in the heart of the Catskills, the six-piece band combines top-notch musicianship, impeccable vocals harmonies and a mighty horn section. The Blues Maneuver band has an eclectic repertoire to suit nearly any musical test, with tunes from today to the 1940s, including a vast selection of swing, Motown and classic R&B. The band brings an elegant look to the stage, with Art Deco-style music stands and sharp costumes.

The Blues Maneuver released its second recording for Five-Star Entertainment in 2008, “Bona Fide Flip Side Rhythm & Blues,” which features a number of great B-side R&B tunes.

Those wishing to pack a picnic dinner and beverages of choice are welcomed to board with baskets and coolers in hand.

Tickets are $17 and reservations are suggested. Call the Arkville Depot at 845 586-DURR. The railroad is located on Route 28, Arkville.
