February mini-tour ...
February Jazz ~ 1/31/2020 ~ upcoming gigs!
February brings us further into the year, with more sunlight and abnormally warm conditions ~ seems like Spring might be right around the corner! Well … maybe, but jazz certainly is!
Jeff Fuller & Friends, with Darren Litzie on piano and Ben Bilello on drums, has a mini-tour of sorts in February, as we continue to celebrate our new CD, “Round & Round” available by contacting me (email or website), at our gigs, and on CD Baby, Amazon and iTunes.
Tonight, Friday, January 31st from 7:30 – 9:30 pm, we’ll be at Smokin’ With Chris, 59 West Center St., Southington, CT, with a possible guest appearance by vocalist Atla DeChamplain.
On Friday, February 7th, from 9 pm – 12:30 am, we will be at Shell & Bones, 100 S. Water St., New Haven, with Andrew Beals added on sax. Shell & Bones is a great harborside restaurant, at the former location of Sage, where I led great bands every Friday for 14 years!
On Sunday, February 9th, we’ll be at Ayuthai, 2279 Boston Post Road, Guilford, from 6:00 -- 8:00 pm, just the trio with Darren on piano and Ben on drums. Call ahead for reservations: 203-453-2988. As always great food, great music.
On Wednesday, January 19th, at 7:00 pm we’ll be performing on the Walnut Hill Concert Series at the New Britain Museum of American Art, 56 Lexington St., New Britain, CT. This concert takes place in a pristine setting, with a marvelous grand piano! Tickets are $15 ($10 for Hartford Jazz Society members). Doors open at 6:30.
On Sunday, February 23rd from 10:30 am – 1:30 pm, again the trio of myself, Darren Litzie on piano and Ben Bilello on drums will play the Jazz Brunch at Elm City Market, 777 Chapel Street, New Haven. This is another of those self-sustaining series of performances, audiences and artists.
And let me break in to the “tour” schedule by adding my regular 5 – 8 pm, Sunday, February 23rd appearance at HOME Restaurant, 1114 Main St., Branford, with guitarist Tony Lombardozzi! You gotta drop by this informal lounge, with great seating and an even better food & wine selection! The music is up close and personal.
To finish off our mini-tour, on Friday, February 28th, at 7 pm, we’ll perform on the Neighborhood Music School Faculty Concert, along with the NMS Ragtime Ensemble. Free admission. More good music to end the month!
And one last event, just barely bleeding in to March, ~ on Sunday, March 2nd from 12 noon – 3 pm, Darren LItzie (piano) and I will be performing with guitarist/podiatrist Gary Grippo at Quattro’s Italian Restaurant & Bar, 14 Water Street, Guilford, CT. An authentic jazz brunch is on tap here, also featuring the smooth sounds of Barry Ries on drums and trumpet.
More fun stuff on the way as Spring progresses! As always, Thanks For Listening!
