WOLCOTT — The 14th annual “An Afternoon with Jeff Sawyer” Christmas concert will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Wolcott on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 3 to 5 p.m. Sawyer and the “Band” have completed the set list for the afternoon’s concert, and this year’s line-up features the most musicians on stage since the inaugural event in December 2000.
If you have attended the annual "Afternoon with Jeff Sawyer" concert before you already know what type of entertainment to expect. Sometimes described as a “very warm and fuzzy" afternoon, this concert is sure to put you in the Christmas mood. Jeff Sawyer, along with singer Kelley Loveless, Matt Vacanti, Rick Bush and Dan Batchelor, are the regular performers…the “Band.”
Special guest returning this year is Rochester’s own Marty Roberts. Roberts and Sawyer have new CD’s so you will be attending a very special event. Connie Fredericks-Malone-vocals and Mike Yacci will also be singing a few tunes.
The musician list keeps growing: Joe Zarr, the well known saxophone player from the Syracuse area will be part of the entertainment. Wolcott’s local talent Noah Barnes will sing a couple of numbers and Larry Kyle, the best blues singer in Western New York, will be stopping by.
Chris Kenyon, who has promoted this event with Sawyer since 2000, is pleased to once again partner with the Lyons National Bank.
“We are delighted to have LNB sponsor this very popular concert,” Kenyon said. “LNB has always supported local events, and their partnership gives us the opportunity to provide excellent music for the community with no admission. It’s all about people with LNB.”
