Hullo friends. This week...
Tuesday, 7/6 at Bobby McGee's 7:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Ron Corsaro & the Upstate Express
Ron Corsaro, piano & arrangements Dick Griffo & Kenny Kuriscak, saxophones Tim Clarke, trumpet John Hasselback, trombone Dave Siegfried, bass your host, drum set
Ronnie has one of the sweetest summer gigs on the Niagara Frontier, and this Tuesday we celebrate an indoor preview to his outdoor concert series. The Upstate Express opens the 2010 season at the Hennepin Park Gazebo this Thursday, and for those of you who can't make the drive to Lewiston, we bring the band to you. Ronnie somehow manages to coax a big band sound out of a septet by way of his crafty arranging skills. And when said arrangements are rendered by the above referenced horn section, the music simply sparkles and comes to life.
So please join us in air conditioned comfort.
Bobby McGee's in the Maple Ridge Plaza, Sweet Home & Maple Roads. Tina, Jyl, steady Billy & quiet Mike - good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and still a great hang.
7/9 at the Lion's Pavilion in Olcott's Krull Park 6:30 - 8:30
Jessica Condes, vocals Jim Sansone, trumpet & vocals Gary Dieboldt, keys & vocals yours truly, drum set
There's air conditioning in Krull Park too, of the natural variety. But with the music in the air and the breeze off Lake Ontario, what's not to like? Especially on a gorgeous friday evening... Sophisticated Swing takes their muse from Lambert, Hendricks & Ross and performs vocal harmonies in the storied swing tradition. They'll steal your heart with both their musicianship and the joy with which they sing and play.
Saturday, 7/10 at Niagara Square 3:00 - 4:00
Ben Baia & the Big City Horns
Benny's band plays the coveted 3:00 p.m. time slot at Niagara Square for the Taste of Buffalo celebration. Let us know you're out there...
Saturday, 7/10 at Bobby McGee's 8:00 - 11:00
Janice Mitchell, vocals Jim Beishline, piano Buddy Fadale, bass yours truly, drum set
Buffalo's Queen of Soul takes the stage at Bobby McGee's this Saturday night. Jim Beishline provides the compliment to
Janice Mitchell's stirring and soulful vocals
by way of his carefully crafted arrangements. You can hear Jim & Janice in any variety of venues this summer, but ours is the only one where the piano is of the acoustic and grand variety, thanks to the generous support of our friends at Hamburg Music.

What do you wish to achieve?
Desire is the starting point of all achievement - not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
