From a press release:

On Black Friday, Nov. 28, at 8 p.m. in the Hawley Silk Mill, Harmony Presents brings the funky, spicy and powerful seven-piece band, the Nat Osborn Band, to Hawley.

“They’ve been an audience favorite. Audience members have cried watching and listening to the Nat Osborn Band play, but not because it’s sad – because the band reminds you how amazing and decadent life is. The songwriting, the musicianship, the showmanship is off the charts. It’s not a surprise that they’ve opened for Dave Matthews Band and have been playing successful international tours with tremendous European bands,” says Jill Carletti, managing director of Harmony Presents.

“The Nat Osborn Band melds, mashes, and stirs up styles like a chef mixing spices: a dash of funk here, a dollop of big band there, a sprinkling of reggae all around a solid base of smart, catchy songwriting. The result: a unique and original sound all its own. They’re perfect for the day after Thanksgiving, because an entire family with diverse interests are bound to enjoy this band and experience.”

Previously, the band has appeared as a quartet, but for this show, all seven members will be appearing, including the horns and sax.

The show takes place in the underground theater of the Hawley Silk Mill (8 Silk Mill Dr., Hawley). Doors are at 7:45 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m.

Cocoon Catering Company caters wine, beer, and light snacks on site for all shows. Seated early bird tickets ($16) have been sold out, but seated advance ($20) and standing early bird ($12) tickets remain.

Tickets may be purchased online at or in person at AMSkier Insurance Agency (209 Main Ave., Hawley). Tickets are also available at the door at $25 for seated tickets and $18 for standing tickets. Purchasing tickets in advance online also gets ticket holders 20 percent off their bill at Glass Wine Bar and Bistro on the day of the show.
