Hello friends. OK, so it's a bit brisk. But it won't be this Tuesday. We've got connections...

We've got a little more of the Eastman pedigree this week, and a lot of the Purchase variety. If you've been into the club on any regular basis, you likely know saxophonist Miles Tucker. He's been featured a time or two over these last few years, and he'll often come by to sit-in when he's not on the gig. Miles is for real. He brings a passion, an intensity, and a modern conception to the music that is at once futuristic and steeped in the blues. In good company, Miles the Eastman graduate will be outnumbered by our three Purchase representatives this week. Guitarist Tom Larsen & bassist Walter Stinson were both colleagues of Wayne Tucker's while Wayne earned his degree at Purchase, and their musical collaborations have continued beyond their college years. This is truly going to be an inspiring night of spontaneous playing and stimulating musical conversation. Try to make it if you can. Miles is around, but Wayne and his friends are coming in from New York just to do this gig and hang with Miles. We really can't promise when they'll be back. Our tradition continues, now at the Iris Restaurant in the Maple-Ridge Plaza, at the intersection of Maple & Sweet Home Roads in Amherst. Good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.
