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.

I learned a lot about harmony by comparing the chord symbols with the written music and the album.
