Local dance schools join members of the region's thriving traditional music community for a lively afternoon of song and dance:

For twenty years, Sampler Records staged sold-out shows featuring some of the finest Irish music and dance Rochester has ever seen, on one of the city's finest stages. This year, Hochstein's Irish Music program and the Joe Dady Memorial Scholarship present a tribute to those concerts and the legends who graced that magnificent auditorium.

Local dance schools will join Rochester Music HOFer John Dady, program director John Ryan and members of the region's thriving traditional music community for a lively afternoon of song and dance. FREE show, but please reserve your tickets:

A big THANK YOU to Kevin Reynolds, Dave Kaspersin, and Jeff Riales for producing this wonderful CD to honor friends and family lost from our Irish Community in recent years.

Many talented friends came together for this project

Now, you can relive that magical night in November 2019 when a sold-out audience and more than fifty performers on stage celebrated the life and music of our beloved Joe Dady at Hochstein Performance Hall. If you didn't make it to the show, we hope this will help you feel like you were there. It has been a true labor of love to make this audio/video keepsake available. Very special thanks go to Brian Coughlin (video), Gary Holt (audio), and Julie Gelfand-Piper (still photography) for the hours of expertise they have given to this project. 

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Little Theater for the premiere of the Show for Joe and thanks to our great friends, The Brothers Blue, for their awesome post-premiere concert!

Visit the Dady Brothers Store or see us at an upcoming show to purchase the DVD/CD set or the entire show on a USB Flash Drive for your computer or smart TV. There is also a 24-page photo book (included with the DVD/CD set) available. The photos are included on the flash drive.

Proceeds from the sales of the video will benefit the Joseph Dady Memorial Music Scholarship!
