Jazz fest hits Jamesville Beach Park in June
30th ANNIVERSARY EVENt: Average White Band returns for second year to join stellar lineup in Syracuse area
SYRACUSE — A legendary jazz act interrupted by rain last year has will return to the M&T Jazz Fest for the event’s 30th anniversary next month at Jamesville Beach Park. The Average White Band, the accomplished Scottish funk and soul ensemble known for the smash hits “Pick Up the Pieces” and “Cut the Cake,” will take the Jazz Fest stage immediately following co-headliner Donovan on the inal day of the two-day 2012 festival, according to Jazz Fest founder and executive producer Frank Malitano. From 9:30 p.m. to closing June 23, the multi-platinum Scottish recording artists will return to the Jazz Fest stage, following their rain-shortened, but enthusiastically received, performance at last year’s festival. Of the return engagement, Average White Band’s co-founding guitarist-vocalist Alan Gorrie said, “Party coming soon. Can’t wait. We’ll pull out all the stops for this new scenario.” “Because of the brief rainstorm that passed through the fest last year on Friday evening,” said Mr. Malitano, “we ran a bit behind and AWB only got to do a handful of their hits, as they graciously exited to make room for their fellow 2011 co-headliners. But that early exit obviously left the crowd wanting more, and they were clearly one of the major highlights of last year’s festival, so their return this year was inevitable. This time around, they’ll play a full 90-minute set, and close out the 30th anniversary fest in incredible fashion. They’ll definitely make it a dance party to remember!” Currently celebrating their 40th anniversary with a world tour, and regarded universally as one of the best soul and funk bands in history, Average White Band has been performing sold out shows for over 40 years. Together the band has had multiple gold albums and numerous Grammy nods for a number of their mega-hits. With their heavy R&B soul inluence and their danceheavy classic grooves, AWB has been a proven favorite at jazz festivals worldwide for the past four decades. The 30th anniversary M&T Jazz Fest is scheduled for Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23 from 3 to 11:30 p.m. daily at Jamesville Beach Park. The popular festival, featuring co-headlining acts Kenny G, Donovan. Billy Vera and AWB, includes free admission for the public. The 10th annual Price Chopper ireworks display will immediately follow Average White Band’s performance on the second night of M&T Jazz Fest 30, adding what Mr. Malitano called a “proper pyrotechnic punctuation for this milestone musical event.” For a schedule and more details, see www.syracusejazzfest.com.

SYRACUSE — Keith Urban, winner of four Grammy awards for Best Male Country Vocal Performance, will bring his 2012 concert tour to the New York State Fair as part of the grandstand concert series. Academy of Country Music and Grammy nominee David Nail will open the show. Mr. Urban, the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 24 at the grandstand.

The ticket on-sale date will be released as more concerts announcements are made. “Keith Urban has had long-lasting success in country music,” said Dan O’Hara, state fair director. “This will be a show fairgoers won’t want to miss.” This will be Keith Urban’s second performance at the state fair grandstand since his sell-out appearance in 2006. Critics have called Mr. Urban’s shows “one of the best reasons in the world to attend a live concert.” They’ve said that fans would be “hard-pressed to ind a better country — or rock — show anywhere.” Mr. Urban’s catalogue of hits, such as“Better Life,”“Somebody Like You,”“Days Go By,”“You’ll Think Of Me,”“Sweet Thing,” and his latest, “Without You,”“You Gonna Fly,” and “For You,” will give his fans a concert experience that has earned him a reputation as one of music’s best live performers.
