New Start Time for Readings on the Common

TAKE NOTE! Readings on the Common is changing its start time to 3:00 PM on Sundays. This is to be sure we have vacated the Bandstand in plenty of time for the bands to set up for their Sunday evening performances.

Live-Stream Some Jazz!

The son of long-time Player Tom Durnford is a jazz bassist in New Orleans and a member of the jazz band The Colgate Collective. They will be performing at Buffa’s in the Big Easy tomorrow evening and their performance will be live-streamed. We thought some of you might enjoy listening! Here’s all the info:

Come on out to Buffa’s for the Colgate Collective’s first show since before the pandemic! We worked up some new music during the shutdown, and are excited to finally share it. We are fortunate to have a killer band featuring Mike Christie on trumpet, Scott Clemens on saxophones, Nat Lawrence on piano, Thomas Dunford on bass, and Sam Colgate on drums/band leader. 

There will be two shows, first one starts at 7pm and the second starts at 9pm. Both shows will be live-streamed at http://buffasrestaurant.com/
