The above, ladies & gentlemen, is a big band appearing this Tuesday at Milkie's Elmwood. Need I say more? OK, more... The Western New York Jazz Orchestra is a living, playing actualization of Dave Kayne's body of work. Every composition, save one tune by trombonist Dave DeWitt, is from the fertile, musical mind of Dave Kayne. You'll hear standards you know, all artistically arranged by Dave, and you'll hear music written and arranged only for this band. If you want a table in the main room, you should plan to get there early. This same band had an overflow crowd at the Iris in June of 2011, and that's a big room. There's free parking in the bank lot on Elmwood. And a dollar buys you a parking spot in a metered lot directly across the street from the club on West Utica. We could not have planned a more exciting way to kick off the summer of 2013. We hope to see you. Milkie's on Elmwood is at the intersection of West Utica & Elmwood Avenue. 882-5881

Dinner with The Magpies... OK, so it's not the Roycroft. But you can't get dinner for six bucks at the Roycroft either. If you are one to haunt the busy intersection of George Urban & Dick Rd come dinnertime Friday, you know where to find us.

It's very easy to blame an inanimate object.
