Palace Sessions


The Palace Theatre, the City of Albany and Mirth Films are teaming up to present The Palace Sessions, a monthly live music series featuring some of our favorite regional acts performing in unique spaces within the historic performing arts center. 

 Performances will stream live on the PALACE THEATRE’S Facebook and YOUTUBE PAGE beginning at 7:00 pm. Additional performers will be announced.

Wed, March 31st at 7:00PM

Victory Soul Orchestra is a hometown horn funk favorite. The dirty sounds of New Orleans brass drive their sound with influences that include Galactic and the Dap Kings. Fronted by Albany’s own JB aka Dirty Moses and singer Dali Soto, their combined efforts help create a funk/rap show that brings the house down. 

The performance of Victory Soul Orchestra will stream on the Palace Theatre’s YouTube Page at

“We are thrilled to be able to welcome live music back to the hallowed halls of the Palace Theatre,” noted Billy Piskutz, Executive Director of the Palace Performing Arts Center. “This historic building exists to entertain and create memories and after a nearly four-month absence due to COVID-19, it is a thrill to know that it will again. We hope that our patrons will enjoy these performances as much as we do!”  


“Summer in Albany is synonymous with music and entertainment and it is wonderful to have the Palace Theater hosting local musicians albeit in a different way this year,” said Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. “I applaud the ingenuity of the Palace Theater, the Office of Cultural Affairs, and Mirth Films in bringing entertainment to people during COVID-19.  I continue to be impressed with how our community has risen to the challenge of keeping the arts alive during this time and look forward to tuning in to the Palace Sessions.”  


During the stream, donations can be made to benefit the Palace Performing Arts Center, Inc. – the 501(c)3 non-profit organization that owns and operates the historic Palace Theatre.
