JazzBuffalo is excited to partner with Seneca One and Douglas Development Corporation to bring to the Buffalo community Jazz On The Plaz! this summer. Taking place on Fridays beginning at 5:00 pm.
Location: The weekly series will be held at the West Plaza of Seneca One Tower between Pearl Street and Main Street. Recently renovated to create an open community gathering space.
The revitalization of Seneca One Tower has been a remarkable transformation from its days serving as a headquarters center for banking institutions. Now serving as a technology hub for M&T Bank and start-up companies, it also offers the availability of apartments with spectacular views. This latest revitalization by Douglas Development Corporation affords the opportunity for the community of Buffalo to make use of this grand location. And to experience jazz, entertainment, and community gatherings at one of Buffalo’s most significant assets.
We are able to experience a time reminiscent of when people gathered outdoors to hear music in public town squares and plazas.
There will be food trucks available to offer food and beverages. Including beer and wine. And the trees offer shade for people as they sit on the concrete benches to enjoy getting together with friends and listening to live jazz music.
Parking and transportation information is available at this link: So Your Coming To Seneca One
We will be kicking off the series by spotlighting one of our up-and-coming next-generation jazz groups in the city. The Jay/Sharptet band. Fresh off a recording date for the forthcoming new release of an album, the Jay/Sharptet enjoys performing music with a focus on original compositions and arrangements. Inspired by ensembles such as the great Miles Davis Quintets they strive to approach every tune with a unique interpretation and captivating melodies.
Look for more details soon about the schedule of bands for Jazz On The Plaz!
