Aaron Lipp & The Slack Tones

Aaron Lipp & The Slack Tones is a powerhouse Rockabilly/Americana Roots Music ensemble made of regional all-star musicians. Singing Heartfelt original songs on top of infectious train boogie dance rhythms with world class guitar playing is just one of the soundscapes they have to offer. With players coming from deep backgrounds in bluegrass, old time, swing, country, rockabilly and more this band crafts a new sound while paying homage to the traditional aesthetics we all get nostalgic for. With searingly smooth lap steel slide guitar licks from Gary Meixner, doghouse slap-style upright bass from Brian Williams, rock solid musical drumming from Tom Gilbert and fire flatpicking with powerful vocals from Aaron Lipp, this is not an act to be missed!

2020 Rochester Lilac Festival announcement

As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.

As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.

Hang in there and stay healthy.
