Hello friends. Setting a record for late invitations...
Tuesday, 1/22 at the Iris Restaurant 7:30 - 10:30
John Hasselback, Jr - trombone George Caldwell - piano Wayne Moose - bass your host - drum set
John deserves better than so brief an acknowledgement, but it's already 8:00 and I'm just getting to this. The truth is, we thought we'd try something different this week. Usually I'll ask our featured guest to choose the rhythm section. But this time we settled on bass and chords, and then asked Wayne & George who they would like to accompany. John was the consensus invitee, and a heretofore unheard quartet is born. Can you join us? Show your Buffalo pedigree and venture out into the brisk January air. It's good for what ails you. The Iris - in the plaza at the intersection of Maple & Sweet Home Roads in Amherst. 831-3271. Good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.
Wednesday, 1/23/2013 at the Iris Restaurant 7:30 - 9:30
Buffalo Brass open rehearsal
Were preparing for a concert this Saturday afternoon that you're also invited to. Stop in for a preview.
Thursday, 1/24 at Milkie's on Elmwood 7:30 - 10:30 CANCELLED
Rick Strauss, guitar Michael T. Jones, piano
God bless Mike Milkie. The restaurant/bar/entertainment business is in his blood and there's no stopping him. This week he's celebrating the grand opening of his latest venture. The former Elmwood Lounge is now Milkie's on Elmwood. So in a gesture to our tenure at Bobby McGee's we're doing a little Tuesday-on-Thursday. And the cool thing about this particular quartet is that we are bringing Mike Jones & Rick Strauss together for the first time. Can you believe that? All these years and these two brilliant musicians have never shared the muse nor the bandstand! Can't wait... Join us?
Saturday at the Hearthstone Manor 12:45 - 1:45 p.m.
