Recent and upcoming events

The Jazzbugs are looking forward to playing Nietzshes Sunday night, the night of the winter solstice, the 21st of December. They will spend the evening ushering in the longer hours of sunshine with music and laughter. See the Jazzbugs' page for more news.

Ed (Bass), along with Jimmy Beishline (piano), recently subbed for Krista Seddon at the Trinity at 7 evening at Trinity Episcopal Church on Delaware Avenue in Buffalo. Jimmy's enthusiasm and creative arrangements bring a special quality to the evening's music. Trinity at 7 is an ongoing weekly event featuring music and meditations. Click here for some sound samples of Ed's piano-based performances. Ed has always enjoyed performing at the Trinity at 7 services -- it's been at least a decade now that he's had the opportunity to play with a variety of super musicians at Trinity. Ed also encourages people to visit Trinity at 7 on Sunday nights to hear Krista Seddon.

Ed Woods and Joe Brancato, Bass and Piano, played at the Bishop's Residence for a fundraiser for Catholic Charities. Ed would like to thank Rosa and Rose for their hospitality and efforts in coordinating the event.

Ed is grateful to Mark Monaco of Monaco's Violin Shop for help with his bass fiddles. Too many times too mention, Mark has come through. For your bass, violin, viola, cello, etc., needs, check out Monaco's.

Ed would also like to mention the Red-Eye preamplifier he is now using. It has great tone and reliability and is a pleasure to play with. Check it out at the Fire-Eye website.
