The Berkshire Gateway Jazz Weekend is back again, transforming Lee into a jazz destination this weekend. In addition to performances around the town by local musicians, there are two main concerts on tap for jazz fans.
Then at 7:30pm on Saturday, the Meeting House will be roaring with the swinging sounds of the Greg Caputo Big Band. The 16-piece band will be serving up “A Salute to the Big Bands: Benny Goodman to Gordon Goodwin,” and just to make the evening a bit more enticing, veteran sax master and four-time Grammy Award-winner Phil Woods will be featured with the band.
Tickets are $25 for each of the two main concerts, or you can bundle them together and catch both shows for $40.
