Since July of 2009 the GJB has performed monthly in Hamden at Aunt Chilada's, usually on the third Sunday of the month. Our next session will be from 6 until 8 PM on December 17 with Fred Vigorito, Noel Kaletsky, Russ Whitman, Bill Sinclair, Art Hovey, Bob Bequillard, Joel Schiavone, Tom Artin, and vocalist Cynthia Fabian. (That will be a very busy day for us!) Known since 1993 as the best Mexican restaurant in the greater New Haven area, Aunt C's is located at 3931 Whitney Avenue, just a couple of miles north of Sleeping Giant in Hamden, beside the golf course. Seating is somewhat limited; please call 203-230-4640 to reserve a table, or just come anyway and sit at the bar. Click HERE for Jean Hadley's review of a recent session.
On Fat Tuesday, February 20 (2018) the GJB will be back in Cheshire for another Mardi Gras concert at 7:30 pm in Nelson Hall at Elim Park with special guest Gerard Carelli, a fine trombonist and vocalist you may recall from our days at the Chowderpot. Gerard has been busy since then with the Tommy Dorsey orchestra, the Ray Charles Orchestra, and as a soloist with his own big band at the Lincoln Center, the Rainbow Room and the Waldorf-Astoria. Noel Kaletsky and Russ Whitman will also be with us on clarinets and saxophones. Nelson Hall is a very comfortable 300-seat recital hall with a Steinway grand piano. For tickets and more info call 203-699-5495 or click on TICKETS. The address is 140 Cook Hill Road, Cheshire, CT 06410 . . . . Review & photos from our 2016 concert . . .
