Compliments of the Syracuse Post-Standard’s Michelle Breidenbach: A YouTube video of Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, Sen. John DeFrancisco and former Gov. David Paterson joining forces with a CNY band called The Blacklites for a nearly nine-minute rendition of “Mustang Sally.”

No joke.

The one-time-only (we hope) gig took place at the Mayor’s 2013 Winter Ball Saturday night – Miner’s signature fund-raising event at the Museum of Science and Technology. The $250-a-head party was closed to members of the press, but The Blacklites posted this video on their website.

Miner recently announced she’s seeking a second term, and she’s so far unopposed, although Onondaga County GOP Chairman Tom Dadey has asked DeFrancisco to consider challenging her. The veteran senator hasn’t yet commented on whether he’s even considering a run.

The mayor, who is also Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s hand-picked state Democratic Party co-chair, has been disagreeing publicly with the governor of late over his pension smoothing proposal as one way to assist financially strapped cities like hers.

Paterson has been spending a lot of time in the Syracuse area lately, Reportedly, he has a girfriend in the area. (He and his wife, Michelle Paige Paterson, announced last fall that they have separated after 19 years of marriage).

The former governor also made a stop at Syracuse’s famed Destiny Mall over the weekend, where he hit the go-kart track even though he is legally blind – a fact that he reportedly did not disclose to the ride’s operator.
