Get the summertime blues this weekend as the annual Jazz and Blues Fest once again rolls into Ellicottville.
Presented by the Ellicottville Chamber of Commernce, this weekend is all about taking your pick of awesome musical performances in many of EVL’s hot spots and on the outdoor Winery of Ellicottville stage along Monroe Street.
Come out and hear some of the hottest jazz and coolest blues. Check out Blue Lights Blues Band and Big Sauce Trio at the Gin Mill, or head to Balloons to see Tommy Z and B.D. Lenz. Madigan’s will present the Mick Hayes Band, while LTM Trio will perform at the Silver Fox. Check out Mojo Hand at EBC, Cousins at Dina’s or Growlers Blues Band at Villaggio.
On the outdoor stage, from 1 to 4 p.m. each day, don’t miss Sugar Katty Cool on Saturday, featuring Carolyn (Wendel) Lansom, a 2005 ECS graduate. Sunday features the Big Band sounds of The George Scott Big Band playing the same time slot.
