The Tierney Sutton Band, Glenn and Awdry Flickinger Performing Arts Center, Sunday, 29. March 2020

The celebrated Tierney Sutton Band, helmed by eight-time GRAMMY® nominated vocalist Tierney Sutton, has consistently topped the US jazz charts and garnered critical success thanks to their creative arrangements and rich and thematic discography. Most recently, the much-acclaimed “Sting Variations” album.  After 20-plus years and countless performances in some of the finest venues and festivals in the world, the Tierney Sutton Band has set their sights on the wide-ranging panorama of film music with “ScreenPlay.”

“ScreenPlay” spans the first century of American film music. The band gained firsthand experience in this idiom in 2016 when they were tapped by legendary director Clint Eastwood to score his hit film, Sully. The arrangements and Sutton’s readings of the songs are pure Tierney Sutton Band at the height of its powers, subtly illuminating and revolutionizing each classic, as well as introducing a few lesser-known gems.
Wanting to dig ever deeper into the material, The Band has chosen to present this creative, new music in a creative, new way. 5 acts, each including 3 to 5 songs, will be released as a digital EP, once a month, beginning in February of 2019. A podcast and other behind-the-scenes material that explores the songs and the films that made them so iconic will accompany each of these acts. In June of 2019, a compilation ScreenPlay CD will be released worldwide.
The members of the Tierney Sutton Band is unique in that they have been together for 20 plus years.  The band features Tierney Sutton, vocals, Christian Jacob, piano, Trey Henry, bass, Kevin Axt, bass, and Ray Brinker, drums.  Their longevity has produced creative chemistry resulting in receiving a GRAMMY® nomination for each consecutive album.
It is expected that by the time of the Tierney Sutton Band’s appearance in Buffalo, they may well have received another GRAMMY® nomination for Screenplay and may have finally won as well.
