The Versailles Community Hall will host a dance on Saturday with the music and energy of Uncle Ben’s Remedy. The band will be taking a weekend off from working on their third album to return to The VCH, playing selections from their first two albums as well as some tried and true cover material.

The sound of Uncle Ben’s Remedy is rooted in the small towns of Western New York, where community still matters and music is a part of every event. UBR plays all sorts of traditional and rock n’ roll instruments and stomping the floors; all while singing their hearts out in service to the song.

“Roots Grow deep in fertile soil. These are story songs. Songs about the people we grew up with; grew together with and grew apart from. This music is medicine,” Ben Westlund, front man and songwriter for Uncle Ben’s Remedy, said.

The Versailles Community Hall is located at 1173 Main St., Versailles. Doors will open at 7 pm. Cost of the all-ages event is $8 (free for children under 12), $15 for couples and $25 for families, and will be charged at the door for general admission to one of the most entertaining and energetic original acts in the region. Proceeds from the event go to support the activities of the Versailles Community Association. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
