Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XIII, No 41
Hullo friends. If you didn't make it last week, maybe it's just as well. We were at the fire Marshall limit anyway. Like the old days at our venerable curiously lit location, listeners were shoulder to shoulder and wall to wall. The WNY Project Big Band made its debut appearance, and plans are to build on the energy and the vibe, and provide both a vehicle for big band exploration and a venue for big band performance.
Tuesday, 6/28 at the Iris Restaurant 7:30 - 10:30
Bill Todd, saxophone Michael T. Jones, piano Cameron Kayne, bass your host, drum set
And by a happy coincidence, last week's section saxophonist is this week's featured guest - a debut of sorts because this is Bill's first feature as a leader on our continuing jazz experiment. We were able to find a date in between his cruise ship contracts, and we're expecting a big hometown crowd for this likable and hard working young musician. In fact we've got two twenty-somethings on the gig this week, something which satisfies me greatly: I love it when Mike Jones is among the more senior guys on the gig. So note the later start time, and stop in if you can. We are now the new Iris Restaurant in the Maple Entertainment Complex – good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.
