Friday Flashback Flier

April 14th, 2017, 11:00 am by Greg

Ah, yes, remember ye olde pre-digital days? Those way-back-when days when bands and clubs actually printed up their schedules on paper to staple to telephone poles around town and actually mail out to fans via the U.S. Postal Service?

Well, we’ve dug deep into the vast Nippertown Research Department Deep Storage Facility to retrieve some vintage Local 518 music scene ephemera before it completely disintegrates. (The ephemera, not the scene…)

Since April is National Jazz Appreciation Month, we pulled out this 1994 flier for the inaugural College of Saint Rose Collegiate Jazz for the Arts Festival featuring the Doug Sertl Big Band, Ed Shaughnessy and Troy’s own baritone sax titan Nick Brignola.
