The newest edition of The Palace Sessions features actor, director and singer Thomas Nicholas, along with his band. The Palace Sessions are a series of performances featuring local NY groups as well as national acts, held at the Palace Theatre in Albany.
The Thomas Nicholas band, borrowing its name from its creator, has spent the last ten years experimenting with music and touring around the world. Over the course of 700 shows, they have impressed audiences with their special blend of pop and rock.
The band has released six albums, and are currently working on their 7th. Outside of those official releases, Nicholas makes new singles every six weeks on Patreon.
The Palace Theatre serves as one of Albany’s most iconic landmarks and during its lifetime has hosted many artists, ranging from Wurliday to The Ill Funk Ensemble. Built in 1931, the theatre was originally used to show vaudeville acts and films. It had a resurgence in 1984 when The Palace Performing Arts Center was created.
This historic location may have decades of history, but its overall mission has never changed. The Palace strives to bring world class entertainment and culture to the Capital Region, while also helping the community.
The session will be live streamed on The Palace Theatre’s youtube channel on 2/1 at 7 PM courtesy of Mirth Films. During the stream, donations can be made to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This organization is dedicated to saving lives and bringing support to those affected by suicide.
