Two Buttons Deep Returns to Oktopurrfest!

Two Buttons Deep (2BD) brings “stuff worth talking about” to the Capital Region and beyond, with content meant to be consumed and shared on social media for a primary demographic of 20-and-30-somethings living in New York’s Capital Region. Through their unique “squad” of media personalities, Two Buttons Deep tells authentic and personal stories about living –and loving –life Upstate.

Their mission is to entertain, to document life, events and local happenings, and to showcase the wonderful things, people and places in our Region. In just four years Two Buttons Deep has become the fastest-growing media outlet in the Capital Region with over 85,000 followers in the desirable, social media savvy 25-34 age demographic.

Back by Popular Demand - Rick Bedrosian

Rick Bedrosian has been a full-time, professional musician since graduating high school in 1973. In 2017, after 5 decades in rock, bluegrass, country, Celtic and folk groups that were based primarily in Upstate New York and Nashville, Tennessee (most recently as leader of the worldwide Celtic powerhouse, Hair Of The Dog, and as George Harrison in the Beatlemania sensation, Hey Jude), Rick began also performing as a solo act. Strumming guitar, singing and telling stories about his decades of musical experiences, Rick’s one-man shows have been warmly embraced in both the United States and Ireland. We're thrilled to have Rick with us once again for Oktopurrfest!

about the Festmeister

The Festmeister is the ceremonial title for the one who presides over the celebration. While this prestigious title is usually reserved exclusively for felines, 2020 presented some extraordinary challenges, so we opened it up to all species.

But this year, we're going back to our true Oktopurrfest roots and we will name a Feline Festmeister during the event. Nominations are now closed.
