Hello friends. This week...
Tuesday, 11/6 at the Iris Restaurant 7:30 - 10:30
Chuck Buffamonte, guitar Gerry Youngman, organ your host, drum set
Chuck came home & Gerry moved here. The Buffalo jazz scene continues to get lucky, going all the way back to the late, great Al Tinney. Gerry Youngman, Michael T. Jones, Tim Clarke, George Caldwell, Ed Handman, Lisa Hasselback, Pat Hulsman, Bruce Johnstone, George Jones, Wayne Moose, Wendell Rivera, John Whitney, Kelly Bucheger – all born elsewhere, all among us now. Chuck & I were in college together, sometime before this millennium, and it was really LA that got lucky when he decided to try his coastal fortunes. But it’s their loss now. Simply, Chuck is one of the most musical artists I know. Sound, feel, groove, taste: all things musical. And Gerry’s a chameleon. Is he an organist or is he a trumpet player? Like so many skilled multi-instrumentalists, he’s equally both. We’re happy he’s here. We’re happy Chuck came home. So join us? Bruce Johnstone and his Fredonia Jazz Strings had the place packed last week, and we’d love to keep that vibe alive. I’m continually reminded by listeners and musicians alike that our contribution is vital to the scene. Needless to say, without your contribution, we’d be silent. Thanks for your interest and your help keeping the music in the air. Only at The Iris Restaurant - in the plaza at the intersection of Maple & Sweet Home Roads in Amherst. 831-3271. Good music, good food, good people, world-class artists, chilled spirits, and a great hang.
