Hello from Rochester NY:
Musical Notes and Sports Items...
▲ July will be a busy month for the Red Wing fans with 14 home dates and appearances by Thurman
Thomas, Santa (Christmas in July), Ron Guidry, Stanley Thomas (The Office) and the annual RPO
Concert. Add in fireworks and nightly promotions and it looks like another fun-filled month at Frontier
▲ Thanks to all who came out to our performance at the Rochester International Jazz Fest last
month. The large and enthusiastic crowd was inspiring. And a special thanks to my band members
Roger Eckers, Danny Labbate, Dan Schmitt, Val Colombo and Daisy for their usual great job.
▲ Bob DeRosa, a local jazz bassist, will again be presenting his annual Tritone Jazz At Naz, located on the campus of Nazareth College here in Rochester July 21-27. This is a great opportunity for
aspiring jazz musicians to attend workshops, play or sing in combo or big band settings and learn
from top jazz musicians in the country. Contact is www.tritonejazz.com.
▲ The summer concert season is in full force and among the performers appearing in the upstate area
this month include: Peter Frampton, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Joan Jett, Luke Bryan, Earth, Wind
& Fire, Steve Miller and Joe Bonamassa.
