My Cousin Tone’ is excited to announce that the band will hit the stage once again soon! After our Main Stage performance kicking off the Lewiston Jazz Festival, we are pleased to announce the band will be performing at MusicalFare Theatre in the Premier Cabaret Lounge on Friday, October 21st beginning at 8 pm. The show is presented by the non-profit jazz organization, JazzBuffalo, in association with MusicalFare Theatre.
The Premier Cabaret Lounge of the MusicalFare Theatre is a recent build out and addition to the theatre. Hosting a stage complete with a baby grand piano and drum kit. Seating capacity is 92 seats and a bar with drinks and a light snack menu is available. A fabulous new venue for WNY! The theatre is located on the campus of Daemen College on 4380 Main Street in Amherst, NY.
If you heard our performance at the Lewiston Jazz Festival, you heard new songs and new arrangements powered by a 9-piece ensemble. Tim Martin displayed a tremendous talent for a bevy of new arrangements of classic jazz standards and jazz ensemble instrumentals. Arrangements are completed to give the band’s 4-piece horn section a prominent role in the band’s new sound.
Here is a clip made by Roy Berube of the band’s performance of Mercy, Mercy, Mercy at the Lewiston Jazz Festival:
On this date, we will have Karen Ragusa on bass, Jim Matteliano on piano, Bill Basil on drums, Tony Zambito on percussion, Mary McMahon on vocals, Tom Marinaro on tenor sax, Tim Martin on baritone and alto sax, Andy Peruzzini on trumpet, and special guest Dr. Rick Fleming on trombone. Mary McMahon will once again do her renditions of the classic jazz standards we all love.
Pete Dauphin (trombone) will be unable to join us on this evening. However, we are pleased to have renowned trombonist, Dr. Rick Fleming. Fleming has performed with the Temptations, Aretha Franklin, the Four Tops, Connie Francis, and Frankie Valli. He has also conducted internationally in Hungary and South Africa. Dr. Rick Fleming is currently an associate professor at Buffalo State College and is the Director of the Buffalo State Jazz Ensemble.
