Bobby Militello, saxophone & flute Bobby Jones, piano Jim Colemon, bass your host, drum set
This could be my easiest-ever column to write: Bobby Militello will be playing at Bobby McGee's this Tuesday. That should do it. Consider the place packed. Get there early enough to secure your table and settle in to hear Buffalo's jazz diplomat to the world. This will be Bobby's maiden appearance at our new establishment, complete with the grand piano brilliance of Bobby Jones. As to the photo above - we'll have to disappoint. I told Jones he could use my accordion, but he deferred. He'll play the piano. And no, that's not me in this photo either. I've never had that much hair, or a Rogers drum kit. So please join us as we conclude out January Tuesday calendar with our world renown favorite son. The New Bobby McGee's, located in the Maple Ridge Plaza, Sweet Home & Maple Roads. Tina, Jyl, Magan, steady Billy & quiet Mike - good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and still a great hang.

Jack Civiletto, guitar & vocals Lisa Hasselback, piano
Jack is well-known for his singular command of the Frank Sinatra Songbook, and as well for his blues roots. This week he returns to Bobby McGee's, guitar in arms, vocals at the ready, and genuinely excited about playing his instrument in the company of some salty Buffalo veterans.
Saturday, 1/30/2010 at Bobby McGee's 8:00 - 11:00
Janice Mitchell, vocals Jim Beishline, piano Wayne Moose, bass yours truly, drum set
Buffalo's Queen of Soul. Janice squirms when I say that, revealing her unaffected humility. But it's the truth. No one goes deeper. In the embrace of Jim Beishline's carefully crafted arrangements, Janice draws upon the inspiration of her Ray Charles days, and sings directly to each listener. Join us for your Saturday night date night.

Yes, we are on the way back — not by mere chance, not by a turn of the cycle. We are coming back more soundly than ever before because we planned it that way, and don't let anybody tell you differently.
