- Jazz violinist Billy Bang is a favorite here in Rochester and always puts on a great show with a fantastic band of musicians. His music is very personal, painfully so, much of it reflecting his experiences in Vietnam, which he explored in the albums Vietnam: The Aftermath (2001) and Vietnam: Reflections (2005), which he recorded with a band including several other veterans of that war. NeoCollage will be opening. Doors will open for his performance on November 8th at 7:00 pm. Tickets for the 13+ show will be $15 and $20 at the door and are available through Ticketmaster.
- Di Meola and the World Sinfonia 2007-2008 will be bringing on the guitar god thing on November 9th. His last time here, Di Meola was touring on his recently released album Consequence of Chaos. I was there last year as a guest of his congero (and long term member of Di Meola's band, Gumbi Ortiz). Great show. Al has a lot of friends and rabid fans around here. Doors will open for this performance at 8:00 pm. Tickets for the 13+ show will be $30 and $35 at the door and are available through Ticketmaster.
