The impact of the CNY Jazz Arts Foundation in less than a minute.
Thanks to The Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company (PRPAC) for choosing one of our photos for their most recent production. The PRPAC is producing “Mama Said There Would Be Days Like This” with Omanii Abdullah at Jazz Central. We saw a similar production when it was staged at CFAC. The shows were directed by Ryan Johnson-Travis.
Baldwinsville-bred comic Dan Frigolette appeared on W. Kamau Bell’s show recently and nearly hijacked the street interview with a obscure R&B reference. We knew Dan was funny, but had no idea he was up on Debarge. We like it!
Frigolette will be doing a comedy workshop next month at Jazz Central.
Hoboken’s Dan Frigolette (graduate of Baldwinsville High) put together another joke fest this year, featuring Anna Phillips, and Syracuse natives Jessimae Peluso and newcomer T. Blunt (who served as the MC). There were two sets for the Friday show.
