Last Friday the New York Times featured Peekskill jazz in an article by Phillip Lutz, “Brining in Diners with Offerings Not on the Menu.” The article describes the talent and professionalism of Peekskill jazz favorites Bucky Pizzarella, Ray Blue, Andy Polay and Alexis Cole.
He writes: "When it comes to jazz spots in Westchester,and the lean toward opposite ends of the musical and culinary spectrums. But at a time of year when many fans have decamped for beaches and points beyond, these establishments’ shared ability to attract a crowd is more to the point."
The Peekskill music scene attracts residents from all over the county, but also many here at home in the city. So, share your experience. What keeps you coming back: The professional musicians, veterans in their fields; the ambiance it provides a restaurant; the opportunity to dance the night away?
