Jazz in Buffalo: A June Music Burst in the City

June Bursts With Music

As this edition of ‘Jazz in Buffalo’ coincides with the 80th anniversary of D-Day and the Normandy Invasion of World War II, we take a moment to honor all the men and women who participated in that fateful day. We remember those who lost their lives, as well as the greatest generation that lived through the war, including those who are still with us today, for their sacrifice for our freedom.

Early June is always an exciting time as outdoor music, jazz, and other genres burst forth in a musical explosion. It’s the perfect time to get outside during the precious three months of summer. So, get off the couch, turn off the TV, and experience live jazz and other fantastic outdoor music in Buffalo!

Following their favorably reviewed “In Congruence” CD, the Nixon, Croft, and Goretti Trio will present their newest CD, “Outside Agitators” at Pausa Art House. For lovers of jazz piano trio music, check this out!
