- The alt-country trio Puss N Boots is now scheduled to perform October 3 at the CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival.
The jazz-fusion band Spyro Gyra is rescheduled for 8 p.m. on October 4 at Eastman Theatre.
Festival co-producers John Nugent and Marc Iacona said in this week’s announcements that the rescheduling was dependent on government health and safety recommendations. That would include providing patrons with masks and hand sanitizer.
The four headliner shows that the jazz festival has not been able to reschedule are Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Wynonna and the Big Noise, Trombone Shorty, and Garth Fagan Dance with jazz pianist Monty Alexander.
Tickets purchased for the June dates for Puss N Boots and Spyro Gyra are valid for the new dates.
The festival will offer refunds for the canceled shows (minus service fees) beginning Friday. A second option is a credit toward a future festival headliner ticket, Club Pass or merchandise purchase in 2021 or 2022.
This week’s announcements do not include a refund for Club Passes. Instead, the festival says Club Passes credits will be made available for the festival in October, or subsequent festivals in 2021 or 2022.
No other acts or venues have been confirmed for the October rescheduling. Check rochesterjazz.com for more information.
