Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival on Wednesday, June 27. We're playing two sets, at 7pm and 9pm, on the RG&E Fusion Stage at the corner of Chestnut and East Ave. in the heart of downtown Rochester. That's a great venue and always a good time in that location. And it's FREE! No ticket or club pass is required, just come right in.
We're premiering a new original composition at the festival: SPLODE, which I wrote this spring specifically for the SJBB to play on this performance. It will feature Nikola Tomic on flugëlhorn and all of our saxophonists: Bill Tiberio, Ethan Helm, Casey MacFarlane, and Dean Keller.
We'll also be playing a couple of new arrangements of soul standards, as well as many of our usual high-energy favorites. Chestnut & East will be hoppin, come on out!
