Left Right And Center Political Discussion Group
Mar 29 @ 6:10 pm – 6:10 pm

Hi All!

Our next informal potpourri Left Right and Center political discussion group meeting will be Thursday March 28th 7pm at Spot Coffee 6519 E Quaker OP 14127.

Another reminder is to save the date April 15th for a Medicare for All/ NY Health Act public forum at the OP municipal Building 7pm and spread the word please!

And as always
The purpose of this group is to provide a non-threatening atmosphere for discussion. Our goal is to address many of today’s most pressing issues in hopes of finding common ground. It is our belief that varied political opinions have within them the power to bring us together rather than split us apart.
So that we may better plan, please let us know if you will be attending via meetup.com or by email. We are encouraging and inviting any and all folks who hold any position on the political spectrum to attend! All that we ask is that you attend with a kind, courteous, thoughtful and open mind! If you have or someone you know has expertise in a particular political subject please let us know! For questions email danscotthay@gmail.com .

Tonight! Donny Frauenhofer Acoustic|Electric Trio LIVE 3/28
Mar 29 @ 6:10 pm – 6:10 pm

Joe Goretti- drum set

Donny Frauenhofer is a virtuosic multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, and educator from Buffalo, NY that has been making big waves both regionally as well as nationally in several genres since the start of his professional career. Dipping his toes into multiple scenes, Frauenhofer has become a recognizable name in the jam scene circuit as keyboardist/vocalist with nationally touring act Intrepid Travelers (dubbed “Improvisation Kings” by The Buffalo News Gusto) and their performances at festivals such as Summer Camp Music Festival, Night Lights Music Festival, Some Kind of Jam, Woodhenge Sustainability Festival, among others. Largely known as Buffalo’s best kept secret, the secret may be starting to spread with nominations for “Best Jazz Pianist” in JazzBuffalo’s Reader’s Poll 3 years running, and an award for “Best Jazz Fusion Act” with THE TRUTH, a group he helps compose and arrange for. Constantly rejecting and reinventing narrow labels to expand his craft, Frauenhofer truly best represents an incoming generation of musicians that embrace and access an infinite amount of influences

James Benders studied double bass with Paul Zapalowski of the BPO and Henry Preyerbrune of the TCO, and got his jazz start with Rodney Appleby and Phil Aguglia. He’s played with the likes of Greg Banaszak, Mingus Band member Lauren Sevian, and Grammy winning artist and composer Gordon Goodwin, and premiered a musical at Playhouse Square of Cleveland while studying double bass performance at Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of music. In Buffalo he’s a regular member of the Truth, Kristen Smigielski Combo, DF3, Nickel City Jazz, and was with Gruvology on their European tour.

Joe Goretti also joins DF3 on drums, whose impressive resume includes performing and touring around the world with Moby, Ne-Yo, Robyn, AJR, Ingrid Michaelson, Sam Moore, and the Temptations; and has also performed on hit television programs such as Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with Dave Letterman, The Today Show, LIVE with Kelly & Michael, VH1 Big Morning Buzz, PBS Front Row Center, MTV Online Awards, and the iTunes Festival. Together, the three musicians, each considered top of their class in WNY, combine to form a sound that is dynamic, aggressive, confident, and above all else – grooves hard.”
