New Band and the Warbirds are Back

May. 15, 2013

May 15, 2013 (Utica, NY) - Boilermaker officials announced that Letizia and the Z Band will be headlining the 2013 Boilermaker Post Race Party. The band, based out of Syracuse, is a 5-piece high-energy dance band that plays a range of music stretching from the disco 70's to today's hits. In 2012 Letizia was voted Best Female Vocalist by readers of the Syracuse New Times.

Beth Zaje will be returning to open the Post Race Party. "We received so many positive comments about Beth's performance last year that she was a lock for this year' said Tim Reed, President of the Boilermaker. ' I think we have a really strong lineup that will get the crowd rocking.'

The Genesee Warbirds, based out of Batavia New York, will be returning to do the traditional flyover.  This year three jet aircraft will soar over the F.X. Matt Brewery. 'We know how much the crowd enjoys the jets after the singing of the National Anthem' said Tom Heiland, Post Race Party Director.

'With the current sequester issues grounding military flyovers we see the Warbirds as a great alternative.'
