JazzErie's THANK YOU to its members.   Enjoy a great evening with other Jazz fans in the elegant surroundings of Erie's Women's Club. As always there will be great food, beer, and wine for what is sure to be a great night!

This year we are proud to be honoring Armand Amendola.  Armand has given so much to Erie’s jazz community with his great ensembles, trombone, and bass playing.  He brought everything from big band jazz to small groups and combos. He has given decades of musical and artistic enrichment to our great community.  It will be a great night and I’m sure a good story or two!
