Billboard-charting singer/songwriter Cassandra Kubinski and local favorite troubadour Marcus Ruggiero team up and trade off on holiday favorites and original songs, linked by the themes of gratitude, celebration, and community.  Cassandra will hold court on the piano, and Marcus will serenade on his signature guitar, with a small backing ensemble.

Billy Joel calls Cassandra Kubinski “a rarity…similar to the legendary singer/songwriters of the late 70s”.  She’s performed and recorded with the Goo Goo Dolls, Chris Botti, 10,000 Maniacs and more. You’ve heard her songs on Lifetime, Bravo, ABC, Dance Moms, ESPN, Real Housewives and many other shows.  Locally, she’s performed at Caffe Lena (and recently penned their Annual Fund Drive song “The Music Lives On” with Joe Jencks).  She’ll share songs from her holiday album Holiday Magic, as well as original songs she released this year or is working on with local producer James Mastrianni.

Marcus Ruggiero is a Los Angeles International Film Festival award winning songwriter from Schenectady NY residing in Saratoga Springs NY.

Playing stadiums of 45,000 strong to small local venues in Saratoga Springs, he has opened for artists such as Dave Mason, Lowen  & Navarro, Foghat, Loverboy, Lee Greenwood and many others. 

Sharing the stage and studio recordings with some greats such as  “Dangerous Dan Toler,(Allman Brothers) , Mindy Jostyn (Bob Dylan, John Cougar Billy Joel) , Tommy Byrnes, (Billy Joel’s guitarist and band leader), Marcus continues to perform with his band “Side Show Gypsy” an all original Americana band and his recent cover band “Edge of Town”  that features the music of Bruce Springsteen and original music.
