The Westchester Jazz Orchestra is a top notch, local big band. On Saturday night, Feb 2, "WJO covers Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Carole King" - in jazz style. Irvington Town Hall, 85 Main St, Irvington,, NY Feb 8, 2013, 8pm concert, 7:15 pre-concert discussion with the artistic director.
To join, RSVP here and ASAP buy your own ticket at http://irvingtontheater.com/node/314. Tix are $40. It's difficult to coordinate ticket purchases, so I'd ask you select seats near our critical mass, which will be (a) balcony row D left center, (b) balcony row E left center, (c) balcony row F left center, and last preference is (d) balcony row D right center. Tickets are selling out! Once folks purchase, I'll see about getting a 10% rebate talked about for groups > 6.
We could meet at the discussion/concert (so I'm noting 7pm as meet time), or anyone interest can meet down the street for dinner. I reserved 5:30pm at Chutney Masala. The address is 4 Main St, Irvington,[masked]-5500. I reserved for 5 people as I've only heard from 2 others but we have 8 attending the concert. Please let me know in advance if you're coming.
As of Friday night, 2/1, I see about 15 seats left for the concert not too far away in the balcony from the seats I recommended above.
