Labor Day Weekend Jazz Open House
September 2 at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
A Jazz Open House free-to-all celebrating Labor Day Weekend.
Cliff and Friends ft. Kaitlyn Fay & The Dylan Canterbury Quintet
Cliff and Friends Feat. Kaitlyn Fay is a quintet made up of players from the BWC Jazz Orchestra. Drummer and bandleader Cliff Brucker and singer and baritone sax player Kaitlyn Fay have been honing their tight band of virtuosos in the clubs, lounges, and on the summer stages of the Capital District. Rounding out the band are Wayne Hawkins (piano), Dave Shoudy (bass), and Dave Fisk (tenor sax).
Kaitlyn brings unique vocal stylings to jazz standards and show tunes. Here is what people are saying about her:
“Swinging and sweet – Kaitlyn has a command of her instrument and a musicianship beyond her years. She’s a joy and a natural.”
– Peter Eldridge, New York Voices
Led by trumpeter Dylan Canterbury, the Dylan Canterbury Quintet is made up of some of the Capital District’s finest jazz musicians. Focusing largely on original compositions, the band takes inspiration from the classic sound of 1960s post-bop jazz while infusing their playing and writing with modernist sensibilities to create a truly unique sound. Their 2020 debut album, Going Places, has received both local and national acclaim and radio airplay. Joining Canterbury for this performance are Brian Patneaude (tenor sax), Wayne Hawkins (piano), Lou Smaldone (bass), and Matt Niedbalski (drums).
