The Cool Club is a collection of talented musicians from across the Finger Lakes region. It can appear as anything from a duo to a septet. No matter the lineup , audiences have been delighted with their eclectic blend of "jump, jazz, blues and boogie-woogie ragtime swing." The Cool Club has performed at wineries, clubs, festivals and private events from Rochester to Ithaca for over 5 years.
Their playlist consists of a full catalog of originals as well as standards from Mercer, Gillespie, Davis, Silver, Mulligan and others. The first CD of originals "The Boone-Ra Songbook, Vol.1" has been out for about 2 years and Vol. 2 is currently being mixed and should be out soon. Perfect for holiday giving and available at all performances as well as online at CD Baby - it has a real barcode so you know it must be good.
The lineup for The Cool Club Quintet at The Little Café will be Rick Hoyt: guitar/harmonica/vocals , Tom McClure: sax/flute/clarinet/vocals, Doug Henrie: bass, Perry Cleaveland: mandolin/violin and Joe Galusha: drums.
There are many unauthorized Cool Club tribute and cover bands, but accept no substitute . . . this is the real deal!
