When Ray Brothers Barbeque opened in 2014, brothers Colin and Tucker Ray wanted to bring more than just award-winning food to their establishment. They also wanted to bring live, outdoor music.

Ray Brothers

What started out as a simple stage of plywood and pallets has transformed into a beautifully rustic venue known as The Yard Amphitheater. Holding up to 1,500 attendees, The Yard provides a fully stocked outdoor bar, a walk-up counter for ordering their mouthwatering barbeque, and nationally recognized touring acts.

With the vibe of being in one’s own backyard, The Yard Amphitheater has become one of Central New York’s most lively, comfortable, and fun outdoor music venues. With another great lineup of acts for this summer, it’s time to circle some dates on the calendar and get ready to grab a blanket or chair, a terrific bite to eat, a cold drink, and your dancing shoes!
