Jazz guitarist Sam Farkas was scheduled to lead his band, the Jazz Machine, in a free performance at 12noon on Thursday as part of the summer’s ongoing Jazz on Jay concert series.
Sadly, Farkas passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 12.
So Thursday’s Jazz on Jay concert will instead be a tribute to Sam Farkas and his musical legacy. Performing Farkas’ music in his honor on Thursday will be guitarist Joe Finn, drummer Cliff Brucker, organist Michael Lamkin and saxophonist Eric Walentowicz.
The free performance will take place at 12noon on Thursday on Jay Street in Schenectady. In case of bad weather, the concert will be moved indoors to Robb Alley at Proctors.
There isn’t much jazz to be found on most of the free summertime concert schedules around Nippertown, which is the big reason that we’re thankful for the Jazz on Jay series which takes place at lunchtime at the Circle at the corner of Jay & State streets in Schenectady.
The free weekly performances run from 12 noon-1:30pm Thursdays, and the rain location is across the street at the Muddy Cup, located next to Proctor’s Box Office.
