Skaneateles Will Rock with Jazz Again

Skaneateles NY – Finger Lakes On Tap, Tom Ierardi’s tribute to upstate New York brewing, will host a 4th season of Jazz On Tap” every other Sunday from 2 to 5 pm.  Twenty events are scheduled. A special Saturday night kick-off party starts the series on September 8th with the Diana Leigh Trio, and a mid-series “New Year’s Day Party” with the Angelo Candela Combo will provide a celebration for those unable to party the night before, or who need a second dose of fun. All events are free, with no cover charge. “CNY Jazz Club” cardholders will receive 10% off food and drink.

“This series puts the spotlight on the fine musicians working not only in Syracuse, but in the Rochester, Ithaca, and Auburn areas as well,” according to Larry Luttinger, founder of CNY Jazz and organizer of the series. “It extends the reach of our mission as well. We want this experience to bring new faces to jazz, and to the more than 300 events that we produce across the region each year in public and in schools.” An eclectic lineup of artists including Edgar Pagan, Melissa Gardiner, Jon LeRoy, Steve Brown, Jeff Stockham, Carl Lovell’s Swingdom, Cookie Coogan, and Mark Nanni’s The Intention will appear in a duo and trio format.

Finger Lakes on Tap offers over 60 taps, with selections ranging from the well-known (Stella Artois, Labatt’s) to the exotic (Sam Smith’s Tadcaster from Yorkshire England, Stone Brewing from Escondido California,) and many from across New York State and New England. A carefully curated light menu complements the wide variety of craft beer styles.

2017-18 CNY Jazz Club cards will be honored through November 11th. The full Jazz On Tap schedule can be found at
