On a Roll

A few years ago, if someone asked you who or what "Jelly Roll" was, you'd have to think long and hard to come up with an answer that wasn't food or donut-related.

That's changed quite a bit over the last few years, but, who could have ever predicted the whirlwind success of country music's newest superstar, Jelly Roll?

Heartwrenching Look at Beloved Upstate NY Concert Venue Before Demolition

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.

The Starlite Music Theater opened in 1957 and was a popular venue located in Latham. There were many acts that passed through the Starlite until 1997. It was a 3,000-seat theater in the round. In the 1980s I saw Belinda Carlisle of the Go Go's at the Starlite Music Theater. Kenny Rogers, The Monkees, Weird Al Yankovic, Jonny Cash, Run DMC, Diana Ross, and more graced the stage. The Starlite closed its doors in 1998 and laid dormant for years. Then in December 2012, the Starlite was demolished. Here are pictures of the venue in the summer of 2012 before it was leveled.
