Saxophonist Donny McCaslin began his recording career in the late 1990s after attending Berklee College of Music in Boston. He developed jazz saxophone credibility and then reached a somewhat different and interesting peak with his role on the David Bowie album Blackstar – Bowie’s last CD that was released just days before the singer’s death. That has opened McCaslin up to an even broader range of musical expression captured on his disc Blow that is coming out in early October.

Dazzle celebrates the Great American Beer Festival with two events to choose from - a Beer Tasting that includes 5 beers including one rare beer usually not available outside the brewery and a VIP Beer Dinner includes 5 beers, 4 courses and live music after dinner from Alex Heffron Group.
