October 2019 witnessed the release of Spyro Gyra’s first album of new material in six years. Once again, they have upset expectations by recording an album of all cover songs. In a nod to drawing heavily from their earlier pop and rock influences, Vinyl Tap. Be prepared for some surprises, like a Latin big band approach to Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love”. Spyro Gyra is an unlikely story of a group with humble beginnings in Buffalo, NY who has continued to reach an international audience over forty years, resulting in sales of over 10 million albums and having played over five thousand shows on five continents. They have accomplished this due to a forward looking approach combined with the work ethic of an underdog, always challenging themselves to do something new while never resting on past succeSuss. It has proven to be a recipe for longevity for this jazz group while music has gone in and out of styles in ever shorter cycles.
Two Shows: 3 PM & 8 PM
