This Saturday, (March 19) it’s the third annual ‘Mike Garan Memorial Show’ show at The Chance in Poughkeepsie. The show will feature a special appearance by Twisted Sister guitarist Eddie Ojeda.

Mike Garan was a devoted husband and father, and a teacher at Arlington Middle School. He was also a member of Hudson Valley area band 3 Up 3 Down. Mike unexpectedly passed away at the age of 45, and left everyone that knew and loved him devastated. Each year, friends and family gather to honor Mike at The Chance with a special tribute show.

Doors open at 6pm this Saturday for the Mike Garan Memorial Show with Big Guns featuring Rachel Loran, 3 Up 3 Down, Silverfish, and Last Call plus Twisted Sister's Eddie Ojeda. An after show party immediately follows next door at The Nuddy Bar and Grill. Tickets are available through The Chance box office at 845-471-1966 and
