Hello everyone. This week...
Tuesday, 3/6/2012 at the Iris Restaurant 7:30 - 10:30
Russ Carere, saxophone & flute Matt Michaud, guitar Dave Siegfried, bass your host, drum set
The Carere family name lives proudly among the other esteemed jazz families in Buffalo: Fadale, Schuman, Paladino, Georger, Willis, Kayne, Starr, Hasselback, Kipler, Azarello. (Who'd I leave out?) The tradition continues this week. The programming is up to Russ Sr, but expect to hear not only our featured guest in his featured role, but also the ascending Russ Carere, Jr. This is going to be a great night not only for the music, but for the celebration. Family reunions are a gas. But when you can invite your extended family - those of us in the jazz community - and celebrate your son, his development, and his responsibility with the family name, you've got a night to remember. Can you join us? Be a part of that extended jazz community, commemorate Russ and his family, and hear the future in the company of his biggest influence. We are the Iris Restaurant - at the intersection of Maple & Sweet Home Roads in Amherst. Good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.
Wednesday, 3/7 at the Iris 7:30 - 9:30
Buffalo Brass open rehearsal
"Open rehearsal" means you're invited. We'll start, we'll stop, we'll stutter, and we may even play a few arrangements straight through. The Buffalo Brass is back, and we're working on developing a signature sound and cohesive feel to compliment a deserved big band identity.

Set your priorities...
We succeed only as we identify in life, or in war, or in anything else, a single overriding objective, and make all other considerations bend to that one objective.
