UPROOTED DUO SHOW FEATURING MICHAEL GLABICKI OF RUSTED ROOT

Doors 6:30 PM; Showtime 8 PM
Come out for a night of music with Uprooted Duo featuring Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root with Dirk Miller! It was 29 years ago that Michael Glabicki dropped out of college to start a band. At that time he had no idea what he was going to do or how to get there. Glabicki spent two years learning how to write songs, and create a vision. Rusted Root was then born. The multi-platinum band out of Pittsburgh, evolved around frontman Michael Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a non-genre specific category all its own. Rusted Root built their career around dramatic performances; their polyrhythmic, multicultural rock-and-soul picked up fans like a junkyard magnet as they swept across the nation on tour. A multifaceted musician, producer and songwriter, Glabicki’s talents are unique and extremely uplifting. His solo tour dates and new music are extensions of his creative talent, and will inspire all those who participate. Premium tickets in rows A and B include a meet and greet with Michael and Dirk, complimentary wine, and light fare! The Milford Theater Bar will be open at 6:30 p.m., serving wine, beer, cocktails and concessions!
