We are inching closer and closer with more reopenings and the return of live music under a different “normal.” Without question, we are where we are because we followed the guidelines for stopping the spread of COVID-19. Thank you, everyone! And, diligent we must remain!
One thing we have learned to keep in mind is that all references regarding dates should be viewed as fluid and “best case.” Setbacks can happen easily.
I would like everyone to also join in extending a warm thank you to The DUO+ that featured Donny Frauenhofer and Ellen Pieroni as they take a hiatus from their weekly live streaming. During the past 3 months, both gave of their time and commitment each week on Thursdays and Sundays (with special guest Sean McNamara) to bring to the community the sound of jazz. And, sharing joy and light in a dark time. Thanks to Donny and Ellen for their super community leadership!

The repurposing and reconstruction by Mark Goldman of 249 Allen Street as the planned mix-use art and cultural center, including a home for JazzBuffalo, is underway now that we are in reopening. (If you missed the news, read more here at this link: JazzBuffalo New Home). (Also, Jonathan Epstein of the Buffalo News did a nice story here: 249 Allen Street.) We will be working on ensuring good sound is installed as well as seek the acquisition of a piano and drum kit. Also, look for a JazzBuffalo sponsored crowdfunding initiative to help support the JazzBuffalo Jazz 249 project.
