New music series coming to Baldwinsville

Persimmons Restaurant in Timber Banks to host weekly events

Syracuse NY – The growing Timber Banks community along the scenic Seneca River will soon offer more than fine residential, golf, and boating when the “Jazz at Timber Banks” music series begins in their brand-new Persimmons Restaurant. The 21-event lineup includes the finest that the area can offer in jazz, blues, funk, Rhythm and Blues, Americana, country swing, Latin crossover, contemporary pop, and Sinatra on a schedule that runs through early May.

The series is presented by CNY Jazz Central as their newest “CNY Jazz Club” offering. There is no cover charge, and CNY Jazz donor cardholders will receive 10% discounts on food and drink at all events scheduled on Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m.

“Now the northern suburbs will have nearby access to great music of all kinds on a regular basis in a cabaret setting,” said Larry Luttinger, CNY Jazz leader and series curator. “This venue is breathtaking, the staff is wonderful, and the food and drink first class, perfect surroundings for an enjoyable midweek evening. Not that it’s too far afield for anyone; it’s only 22 minutes from downtown Syracuse, well worth the drive from anywhere. You have to see this place, it’s awesome.”

A party to kick off the series will feature area favorite Edgar Pagán and his “Grupo Pagán Lite” trio, playing pop and Latin pop selections. Free finger foods will be available that evening. After that, an diverse group of artists cycles through, including Scott Dennis, Joanna Jewett, Ronnie Leigh, Alex Becerra and Friends, Baldwinsville native Vanessa Vacanti and the Jazz Mafia, Mike Houston and Sam Wynn, Cherie Giraud, JoeZoe, ESP with Kirsten Tegtmeyer, Just Joe, Mark Nanni, Nancy Kelly, Rick Montalbano and Julie Falatico, Swing This, and Chuck Schiele’s TRIO.  The entire schedule is available at
