MEDINA – The DSP Jazz Trio performs on Friday evening at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library in Medina. From left include Skip Taylor on the electronic drum set, Derek Reiss on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Pete Mark on trombone and vocals.

The jazz trio performed songs from the American Song Book and jazz standards. About 75 people attended the concert. That is about half of the usual crowd. Friday’s attendance was hindered by icy conditions outside.

The DSP Jazz Trio performs on Friday at Lee-Whedon. The group also is a frequent entertainer at the Bent’s Opera House in Medina.

There is one more concert in the nine-week Finally Fridays series with Step In Time playing Irish folk songs on March 3. The concert starts at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6.

The Medina library has hosted the series since 2002 with the 2021 concerts cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The series receives funding from the New York State Council on the Arts in a program administered by the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council.
