MARCO AMADIO..

THE BRIMONT BISTRO.. 24 W Main St.. 7:00PM

Born in Rome, Italy in 1966 and  moved to Rochester, NY when he was two. At the age of five, Marco began singing and playing the piano and discovered that doing both at the same time felt really natural to him. From the ages 10 to 18, He took lessons at the Eastman School of Music as well as lessons from local jazz greats such as Fred Costello and Joey Santora (Cabo Frio). His first band was formed at age 14, and has been in one ever since.

"I currently have a family, which truly inspires me to be the best version of myself I can be. They are my rock and inspiration."

 

PARADIGM SHIFT..

PLOTY'S HOMETOWN TAVERN..   27 W Main Street .. 7:15PM
WE REMEMBER WHEN JAZZ WAS DANGEROUS. DISRUPTIVE. ALIVE.

In the early 90s, Paradigm Shift was born in Rochester, NY to bring spirit back to neo-jazz with organic, funky grooves and street-level ambiance. Bandleader Melvin Henderson and co-founder Gerry Youngman grew up in the golden age of jazz clubs: simmering hotbeds of grit and soul. In an era of turmoil and enormous social change, Henderson and Youngman spent their formative years watching and listening to the great jazz legends. After attending Berklee School of Music, Youngman toured with classic R&B icons like The Drifters, The Platters, Martha Reeves, and St. Louis soul legend Walter Scott. Also out of Berklee, Henderson has recorded and shared the stage with Al Jarrreau, Roy Ayers, Cheryl Lynn, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, and legendary organists Jack McDuff and Dr. Lonnie Smith. 

 

SHADES ..

JOJO’S BISTRO & WINE BAR.. 42 E Main Street.. 6:30PM

Shades is comprised of Abigail Riggins and Amanda Ashley from Rochester, NY met in the quest of growth and mentorship. Collaboratively they established a bond that would further transpire into a musical partnership, throughout the Covid shutdown, virtually composing over fourteen songs.  Their beautiful, inspiring sisterhood is a reflection of their shared passion for life, love, expressive writing, and music. Together they may be found performing their original work and a wide variety of popular (multi-genre) covers locally throughout the Rochester music scene. 

 

SKELETON KEYS..

BARRY'S OLD SCHOOL IRISH.. 2 W.MAIN STREET.. 6:30PM

The Skeleton Keys consists of keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Katy Wright and guitarist/vocalist Barry Jencik.  If you like blues, rock, country, Americana, R&B, pop and original music, then you will like the Skeleton Keys.

 

CMD..

THE COACH SPORTS BAR.. 19 W. Main Street.. 8:00PM
A musical group made up of 3 unlikely musicians. Casey Filiaci, Piano; Mark Terranova,
Bass; and David Cohen, Drums. C M D! Common. Music. Different.
CMD takes Classic Rock R&B, & Pop songs, and plays them in a style some would call jazz.
Yup, it's jazz. But, it's different. Sometimes quiet and pensive. Sometimes soaring and
cinematic. Other times, chaotic and on fire. But... you will always know the songs and you
can always feel the groove. From the Eagles, to CSN, to Joni Mitchell, to The Beatles, Peter Gabriel, The Doors, Aerosmith and The Police for starters... even Musical Theatre is represented. Nothing is off limits - except boredom. The members of CMD have played everything from rock and roll, pop, reggae, funk and jazz, to orchestral television scores and motion picture soundtracks. It's time now... for this. C M D. Common. Music. Different.
