JazzBuffalo has announced the brand new “Art Meets Jazz,” series, a four-part event taking place at Beebe’s at the Gallery and the C. Stuart and Jane H. Hunt Gallery with the first installment on Jan. 24 from 6-8:30 p.m.

JazzBuffalo is the d.b.a. and brand name for the Greater Buffalo Jazz Society, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to building jazz awareness and jazz appreciation in the WNY area. The organization promotes jazz and builds audience appreciation for jazz through jazz news, live performances, concerts, festivals, jazz series, event calendaring, ticketing, hosting internationally recognized jazz musicians, and jazz education.

Experience the harmonious blending of ‘Art Meets Jazz’ at Beebe’s at the Gallery and the C. Stuart and Jane H. Hunt Gallery — an exceptional and one-of-a-kind event. With a uniquely captivating art gallery encounter and entertaining sounds of live jazz music, it is a perfect place to relax and enjoy some quality art. This event is set to provide a unique New York City-style gallery experience, brought to audiences through the collaborative efforts of Tony Zambito, producer of the renowned Art of Jazz Series, and Peter Hunt, esteemed sponsor of the Art of Jazz Series.

“This unique collaboration represents a fusion of art and jazz, a joint effort between Peter Hunt and myself,” said Tony Zambito, founder and Executive Director of JazzBuffalo, for Buffalo Rising. “Our goal is to expand the artistic synergy between art and jazz, continuing our mission to enrich Buffalo’s cultural landscape, akin to our successful Art of Jazz Series at the Buffalo AKG Art Museum.”
