Tenor Saxophonist and Buffalo Music Hall of Famer, Phil DiRe started his professional career in the US Marine Band where he was permanently assigned to the White House as the leader of a jazz quartet that performed for all White House functions. During those years, Phil performed with Duke Ellington, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Taylor, just to mention a few. For this concert, DiRe will perform an exciting mix of jazz standards and original compositions with a group that includes John Hasselback, Chuck Buffamonte, Mark Filsinger and Jerry Livingston.
