**The Blacklites were the HEADLINE performance at the New York State Fair LIVE on the
main stage. The Court was packed with people from all over the state and beyond.
All the BEST hometown bands from Albany, Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse
entertained the crowd all day and all night. We went on stage at
9pm beginning with a tribute to our troops. After that it was PARTY TIME, where the screams
from our audience were heard from the Midway! This was hot, hot, hot!
Our stage apparel was over the top and our performance was totally incredible. We enjoyed
performing for our loyal fans and friends as well as new fans and friends and visitors to Syracuse.
We rocked Syracuse at the New York State Fair with some Blacklites Old School!!**
