Saturday May 18 Jelly Jar plays Buffalo Porchfest at Inn Buffalo, 619 Lafayette Ave. from 4:45 to 6:00. JJ’s own, Ken Africano, is helping owners Joe and Ellen Latieri organize the music for the afternoon. The show starts at 1 pm with Two Down — Ken Africano on keys, JJ’s Bill Savino on bass — plus lots of lawyer musician friends from Lawyers for the Arts. At 2:30 The Original Artsyfacts play, followed by Rabbit Jaw at 3:30. Rabbit Jaw has JJ’s John Brady on guitar. Mike Reville on bass. Erin Bahn, who you may have seen at Lawyers for the Arts, will be doing her performance art best in full costume. Check out www.rabbitjaw.com. Jelly Jar finishes the show. Plus we are working on having a gourmet hamburger stand set up and Joe Latieri has been known to be talked into a tour of the Inn.
Jelly Jar performs at Eckl’s at Larkin, 703 Seneca St. Buffalo on May 17 from 5 pm - 8 pm. You may have heard of Eckl’s from the south towns. It has been an established restaurant since 1934. Jim Cornell purchased it and opened a new Eckl’s at Larkin last year. It continues the Eckl’s tradition of great food and the new restaurant is big and beautiful. We are looking forward to playing our first gig there. Hopefully the weather will cooperate enough to allow us to open the garage doors and get some sunshine as well. One way or the other, consider coming out right after work and enjoying this great new establishment and some Jelly Jar tunes.
New year; new venue: Jelly Jar plays its first 2019 show at a new brewery: The Thin Man in Elmwood Village. Hear Jeff Hypnarowski, John Brady, Kevin Roth, Bill Savino and Ken Africano play two sets of R&B/Soul from 10:00 pm to 1:00 am on Friday, January 25, 2019 at the latest Shatzel restaurant. Craft beer and live music-it's always a party!
