Wildwood bbq Tap Takeover
Stop by Wildwood Barbeque this Wednesday for some tasty brews from ABC! We are taking over the taps starting at 5pm with giveaways, specials and of course, Amherst Beers!
Amherst Jazz Orchestra
Founded and headed by bandleader Dave Sporny, this professional big band plays a wide array of music, from rare and historical big band works to some of the newest original contemporary jazz. AJO performs on the first and third Monday of each month. Going into their 16th season at ABC, the Amherst Jazz Orchestra has quite a following! Therefore, we encourage everyone to come early to get a good seat, as we do not accept reservations for this event. Starts at 7:30 PM and goes until 10:00 PM.
ABC Night of Comedy
ABC is All Bout Comedy as we present this first in a series of comedy shows. Saturday night, September 20th we will be spotlighting the comedy of Mike Hanley with Tim McKeever opening along with 2 more up and coming comics. This should be a hilarious night of fun hosted by Dario Mercadante. Seating for dinner starts at 6 PM and the show begins at 8 PM. Tickets are just $10 in advance and $15 at the door, although we expect this to be a sellout, so purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended. Make your reservations now by calling us at 413-253-4400 x3. Plenty of FREE parking.
Jeff Holmes Big Band
The 17-piece Jeff Holmes Big Band plays a wide array of jazz and contemporary styles, the majority of which is composed and/arranged by its piano/trumpet-playing leader. Comprised of musicians/music educators primarily along the Western MA/CT/NYC corridor (many of whom are UMASS music alums), the ensemble has played with Conrad Herwig, Wayne Bergeron, and the late David Fathead Newman among others, and have been featured at the International Trumpet Guild Conference, toured Russia, and released two CDs. Holmes is Director of Jazz and African-American Music Studies at UMASS.
