Frank Malfitano and Joanie Mahoney: Building Consensus

Frank Malfitano and Joanie Mahoney: Building Consensus

This week we heard rumors that The Syracuse Jazz Fest may have to move to the Lakeview Amphitheater; we also heard if it did not move, funding may be withheld. Well, Jazz Fest Producer Frank Malfitano and Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney appeared at a press conference this afternoon to set the record straight. Their mutual admiration was evident from the start, and if this kind of cooperation is wrong, none of us should wanna be right.

To hear a clip of the press conference, including Malfitano’s comments on why he chooses to keep Jazz Fest on Onondaga Hill (for now), and what the college means to him, click the sound file.

The event, which was held at the historic Second Olivet Missionary Baptist Church, was attended by politicians, local musicians, concerned concert goers, and members of the media.

Beasley, Loeb & Veasley from Syracuse in Focus on Vimeo.

Veasley, Loeb, Beasley sounds like the name of a law firm or investment bank, but true fans of the jazz genre recognize that when on stage these names signal a crisply proficient combo. We’ve never been on a smooth jazz cruise before, but the event in Syracuse a few nights ago was just a little bit of water (or a Brian Culbertson sighting) away from the real thing.

Special shout out to Reggie Seigler for producing a great concert for the FunkFest 2k16 (New York State Fair). During the show J.A.M.S., along with Pastor Daren Jaime and People’s A.M.E. Zion, raised over $1100 for victims of a local tragedy.
