Cohoes, located in the northeast corner of Albany County is home to The Cohoes Music Hall, the center of the village and houses hundreds of local music concerts every year. Starting in late July, the venue will reopen, and fans from all across town will gather here to enjoy performances ranging from rock to folk to stand up comedy.
The Cohoes Music Hall was built in 1874 by two businessmen looking to bring live music to the center of town. Since its opening, the hall has hosted many performers such as Buffalo Bill Cody, John Phillip Sousa, Pat Rooney, and more. In 1905, after about 30 years of financial struggles, the bank chose to shut down the venue when the roof gave up and there was too small of a budget to repair it.
Many years later in 1986, the town funded over a million dollars to restore and reopen Cohoes Music Hall. Since its reopening, it has been a big success in the town, hosting very diverse performances. It is also the fourth oldest functioning music hall in America!
The fall concert season is set to begin on July 27th with a performance of Alice in Wonderland. Throughout the late summer and entirety of fall, performers such as Joe Louis Walker, The Sweet Remains, Dana Fuchs, and so many more will grace the Cohoes stage. There are even a few shows already planned for the beginning of 2022.
The location of the Cohoes Music Hall is perfect for anyone looking to have a night out on the town. Since the hall is in the center of town, food and drink options for before or after a show are endless. Whether you’re in the mood for Anthony’s Italian Restaurant, Cafe Monocle, or Hot Dog Charlie’s, it will be conveniently located close to Cohoes Music Hall. Tickets are available now, so get ready for a fall full of great shows!
