During yesterday’s Multicultural Block Party on the Near Westside, SU’s mascot and SU’s DJ had people in Skiddy Park (from kids to politicians) dancing. Both Otto and DJ Maestro were in mid-season form.

Second Line Syracuse, an interactive, roving community jazz band is the brainchild of musician & composer Melissa Gardiner. Sunday afternoon the group marched thru the streets of the Near Westside to the delight of neighbors and passersby.

Competition obviously makes for plenty of invention.

We finally got to see the Second Line Syracuse project (winner of the Salt City Dishes prize) up close yesterday, and we were impressed. We hope their dedication to the craft (they marched in the rain) is a reflection of the shape of jazz to come here in the city.  Maybe they will show up at the Downtown Syracuse Arts Festival or a street party near you soon.
