The Peanut Gallery Jazz Band is back again!
One of the surprise hits of last year’s Nippertown’s holiday season, the Local 518 all-star jazz trio – featuring pianist and host David Gleason, bassist Mike Lawrence and drummer Pete Sweeney – returns to the College of Saint Rose’s Massry Center in Albany on Sunday (December 2) for two shows.
The core of the unforgettable, family-friendly afternoon is the marvelous music of Vince Guaraldi – made famous in those “Peanuts” holiday specials – but you’ll also experience a stage full of Christmas decorations, an audience sing-a-long and a healthy dose of humor. And let’s not forget the milk-and-cookies reception for the kids, too.
It’s a perfect concert for the jazz lover and the entire family, just in time for the holidays.
The Peanut Gallery Jazz Band’s “It’s a Jazzy Christmas” takes over the College of Saint Rose’s Massry Center in Albany for performances at 3 & 5pm on Sunday (December 2). Tickets are $20; children & students $10; under five years of age FREE.
