Sunday Night Jazz Series

Sunday, April 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$20 – $25

We are excited to welcome the inimitable Dominic Missana Quartet on Sunday, April 21, 2024.

Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Dominic Missana was integrated into the local music scene from an early age, playing his first shows on the saxophone and harmonica with local legends at only thirteen. In high school, he spent all his time in the acclaimed Williamsville East band “wing,” where he further developed his musical talent – and his love of jazz. He eventually won the best soloist award in jazz legend Wynton Marsalis’ Essentially Ellington Jazz at Lincoln Center Student Competition. The competition introduced him to New York City, and inspired him to start his career there after college.

Dominic attended the renowned Purchase Conservatory of Music, graduating with a degree in Jazz Saxophone, and moved to Manhattan shortly after where he still resides. Today, Dominic specializes within the rhythm section of many groups but is also featured playing saxophone and harmonica all over NYC.

Over the course of his career, Dominic has shared the stage with dozens of acclaimed artists, including Jerry Livingston (Rick James Band), David “Fathead” Newman (Ray Charles Band), Bernard Purdie (James Brown Band), Bruce Johnstone, Bobby Militello, Wynton Marsalis, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Eric Alexander, Charles Blenzig, Zuri Appleby, Ben Williams, Marcus Strickland, Marcus Gilmore, David Frazier Jr., Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Bobby Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Ledisi, Parliament Funkadelic, Snarky Puppy, JoJo Abot, Common, Wyclef Jean, Chika and Action Bronson.

Today, Dominic plays with and or musically directs acts such as Latasha Alcindor, Rosehardt, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Quantic, Chika, Action Bronson and serves as the musical director for the Special Victims Unit, the house band on VICELAND’s Untitled Action Bronson Show.

The event starts at 6 pm. Admission is  $20 for members and $25 for non-members and available to purchase at the door.

One thought on “Sunday Night Jazz Series

  1. We were planning to come for a jam session of the Colored Musicians Club on April 21 at 6 pm. Will the show be mostly with Dominic Missana Quartet?
