There are a whole lot of funky bands in Syracuse who perform at various venues during the summer, but we wonder if any of them have as much fun as The Blacklites. It’s hard to think of Jazz in the City on the Southside, whether at Dunk & Bright, Kirk Park, or any venue in the neighborhood without thinking of the Blacklites.
The group is celebrating over 40 years of musical brotherhood.
We have to give credit where credit is due.
Larry Luttinger and the Northeast Jazz & Wine Festival staff did a great job this year. Not only did they extend the festival a third day (to add Blues), but also literally weathered a thunderstorm, followed by sticky humidity, one cancelled performance, and another headliner who showed up injured.
But of course, the show must go on.
Overall we heard some great music and saw some memorable performances, including a tribute to Jeff Houston and fantastic Friday dance party with Atlas.
Hopefully, the Jazz in the City series that they produce in August won’t bring so many surprises.
