The Tabernacle, a Sweet_ness 7 establishment in the Grant Street area of the West Side, will host a jazz series in the converted former house of worship. Located near Lafayette and Grant Street, the former temple gained notice from its unique and eclectic art that adorn the walls and ceiling completed by Jeremy Twiss.
The jazz series will take place on Wednesdays from 7:00 – 9:00 PM throughout the months of September, October, and November. The series is all ages, and students are encouraged to attend at a discounted cover charge.
The series will feature local talented jazz musicians with an emphasis on performing original music. The exception is a tribute night on October 16th, celebrating the recently deceased trumpet legend, Roy Hargrove, with THE TRUTH & The Jay/Sharp Quintet. Scheduled to perform are local jazz musicians Adam Bronstein and his trio, the jazz-fusion group voted by JazzBuffalo reader’s as their favorite for 5 years in a row – Grüvology, the Ellen Pieroni Trio, the Banjo Juice Jazz Band, and others.
The Tabernacle is owned and operated by Prish Moran, owner of Sweet_ness 7 Cafe located at Grant Street and Lafayette Street. Sweet_ness 7 helped to spur a resurgence of commercial activity back to Grant Street that continues with the addition of The Tabernacle.
The series is presented by Lavender Haze Collective, a new Buffalo-based company (founded by Ellen Pieroni in 2018) focused on supporting the local and regional music.
