Daniel Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week October 8, 2014

Hello friends.  Full circle, but for one night only…

Sunday, 10/12 at Milkie’s Elmwood 6:00 - 9:00
Patty Flaherty, vocals

Patty Flaherty, vocals Craig Kastelnik, Hammond B-3 Chuck Buffamonte, guitar      yours truly, drum set
It is said that you can’t go home again.  But you do if you have a chance to accompany Patty Flaherty, Craig Kastelnik, & Chuck Buffamonte.  So Milkie’s it is, but for only this one special night.  Were you at the Art Gallery this summer for Patty & Craig?  Smokin’!  Craig is incredible - the equal of any B3 player breathing in and breathing out.  His command of both the instrument and everything musical is an artistic thing of beauty.  Any tune, any key, any tempo - comping harmony and kicking bass - groove, taste, chops - simply a world class musician and a world class person.  Patty?  Easily among the most gifted and soulful vocalists you will hear, and a musical product of our own Niagara Falls…  And my college buddy Chuck - ask him about his solo classical guitar performance at our student recital - one of my favored memories of those formative days.  Chuck plays like he was born with a guitar in his hands - feel, sound, facility, and innate musicality.  This is going to be a blast.  Celebrate a Bills home victory, share in a reunion of music and friends, and for many, sleep in on Monday morning!  Maybe we can go home again…

Saturday, 10/18 at Beechwood Continuing Care     6:00 - 9:00
Ron Corsaro, Piano

Ron Corsaro, piano     Wayne Moose, bass     your correspondent, drum set
This gig is really more about an amazing auction to benefit Beechwood Continuing Care than it is a performance, but Ronnie’s trio is among the features.  The food is a gastric delight, the bar well stocked, and the auction offerings may get you that vacation or coveted power tool.  More information at 810-7370

Monday, 10/27 WNY Jazz Orchestra open rehearsal at the Iris 7:45 - 9:30

Make your mistakes, take your chances, look silly, but keep on going.  Don’t freeze up.
