Hello friends. A busy week...
Jason Juliano, saxophone Matt Michaud, guitar Cameron Kayne, bass your host, drum set
Another new voice! This week we welcome alto saxophonist Jason Juliano to his first featured appearance at ourtradition. A student of both Dave Schiavone and Andy Weinzler, Jason is a recent graduate of the Ithaca College School of Music. He's been haunting the scene, subbing on the Buffalo Brass rehearsals, and applying for teaching positions since earning his BA in Music Education. In fact, he's a candidate for a prestigious position at the High School for the Arts in Boston, so we thought we'd get him on the gig before he's only back home on his semester breaks. Join us if you can and hear the future of the music in real time... Milkie's on Elmwood is at the intersection of West Utica & Elmwood Avenue. 882-5881

Act One: John Pizzarelli, guitar & vocals Lisa Hasselback, piano Wayne Moose, bass your correspondent, drum set
Act Two: John Pizzarelli and the Williamsville East High School Jazz Orchestra
JOHN PIZZARELLI, called “hip with a wink” by Town & Country, “madly creative” by the Los Angeles Times and “the genial genius of the guitar” by The Toronto Star joins the Williamsville East Music Department as the featured Guest Artist for the Legends of Jazz Series. Pizzarelli has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Conan” and “Live With Regis & Kelly.” Regis Philbin says, “He is one of the most entertaining performers you'll ever see on a stage. He's perfection: a musician, a singer, a comedian.” “For John Pizzarelli, work and play are pretty much the same thing. He conveys a contagious enjoyment that transports you to a place where worries recede, and you can coast along with him to a jazz-pop heaven. With his quiet, relaxed crooning and wisecracking humor, John Pizzarelli belongs to the cool of jazz, which he infuses with the heat of his good nature and his accelerated solos in which his voice and guitar synchronize.” – New York Times 4/12/13 In addition to being a bandleader and solo performer, John has been a special guest on recordings for major performers such as James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Donna Summer, Roberta Flack, and Paul McCartney. All tickets are reserved seating and cost $15, available starting Monday, April 22. For more information call 716-626-8425 or email email@example.com.

Dave is doing his best to keep it pure. These Wegman's gigs are getting harder and harder to get, and more bands are playing less jazz. But it still remains a cool thing. Play some music with friends, and do the grocery shopping all in one stop. I figure if I spend twice what I make, I get my food for half price. See you at the olive bar...
