2009 Syracuse Jazz Fest

After coming through a thunder and lightning storm, Tom, Michael and I drove into the Onondaga Community College parking lot under sunny skies. The weather would hold for the entire concert.

Michael and I purchased two lamb gyros. The real reason we come here. Returning to our seats we passed this huge banner of guitarist Hiram Bullock hanging between the two stages. Impressive.

Guy in the straw hat stage right was born in Glasgow, Scotland.

"Joanie" Mahoney, the County Executive of Onondaga County and the first woman to hold this position, here with her family.

Jazz Fest Jam Tribute to Hiram Bullock and Michael Jackson

We had a great time. The music especially Bobby B.'s tribute to Michael Jackson was outstanding. Gyros were scrumptious. The crowd was appreciative. The traffic home was sparse.
