“Jimmy Mazz” entertains from the Springfield, Mass area. 




  Go see Jimmy!  Period.  I was referred to him by another musician.  I love getting referrals from musicians because that brings credibility to the gig. 


Let me describe the style of Jimmy Mazzaferro:  style, class, and you better be ready to dance. So bring out those David Bowie “Red Shoes.”  


He’s Got the Goods

Now if you are going to go out and listen to Jimmy, be prepared to hear a number of artists:  Lou Rawls, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, and Bobby Darin, to just name a  few.  Good singer.  Very, very good singer.


Hot Daddy  

Stage presence is great. We went to Pazzo Ristorante in Springfield, right next to the Basketball Hall of Fame.  Jimmy plays there on a regular basis. What a nice restaurant, too.  Jimmy went on about 9:30pm, Friday night. After six songs, Jimmy had about twenty people on the dance floor cooking in the “Hot Town Tonight.”  


Vegas 3  

While we enjoy ourselves, Patrick Tobin stopped in and sang some really good stuff.  Patrick sings the “Hits of  Frank Sinatra” and the Swing era.  Guy is good and hooked up.



Booked & Busy


Check out his website.  His “Dance Card” is very well in demand.  Take a look  at June 2008.….

This Easter season, there’s a new musical experience in town.  It’s called Eyes of Faith, and it’s the Easter musical to be performed by the Trinity Covenant Church choir and soloists.  You may recall hearing of or attending the Christmas musical Great Joy.  Well these are the same amazing vocalists and orchestra members coming back to bring you on a truly inspirational journey.  Eyes of Faith is the story of Jesus’s death and rebirth, and it involves dramatic narrative from several main characters in the Easter story.  Judas, Mary Magdalene, Peter, and others have prominent roles and deliver heartfelt words that bring the story to life and have the ability to touch the hearts of all who listen.  These narratives are accompanied by deeply spiritual music, performed by the all-star cast of voices audience members know and love.  With a choir of about 50 members and a strong orchestral accompaniment, it’s bound to be a huge success.  This Easter season, treat yourself and your loved ones to an afternoon or evening performance of Eyes of Faith.  With free admission and its accessible location at Trinity Covenant Church in Manchester, CT, there’s no good reason not to attend.  And your holiday will be all the richer for it.
