Jazz@SITRUS Talent Lineup Announced

Sheraton Syracuse University Hosts Series for Seventh Year

(Syracuse, NY) — The popular JAZZ@SITRUS series returns for a seventh season at Sitrus on the Hill, the cocktail lounge in the Sheraton Syracuse University, commencing with a kickoff concert by Nancy Kelly and her band in a tribute to Mark Murphy, Syracuse’s most famous jazz singing export. The celebration starts Friday, September 29th at 6pm. Admission is free to all events in the series.

This season will shift to a monthly schedule and present heftier musical offerings, including a new holiday show of music from Vince Guaraldi’s Charlie Brown Christmas album. “This venue is in great demand throughout the season, so we decided to lean out our schedule and bring in bigger acts and unique new packages,” according to Larry Luttinger, organizer of the series. “The ever-popular Nancy Kelly will again anchor the series with three performances, we’re featuring an America’s Got Talent semi-finalist, a Peanuts holiday show, Donna Alford’s soulful voice, and a CNY Jazz reunion gig with Melissa and friends. Ending your week by winding down and attending these fun gigs should be a priority for all who love good music, food and drink.”

This year, the Sheraton is extending the CNY Jazz Club 10% food and drink discounts to all who show a valid S.U. I.D. card, and validated parking is available. 2016-17 CNY Jazz Club cards will be honored through the November 3rd event. Call 315-479-5299, email or visit for more information.
