Today we lost a great friend, piano player and band leader,  JOE CAVALLARO.  Joe came from Elmira NY and entertained many of us who attended Alexandria Bay Jazz Festival and who also help run the Twin Tiers Jazz Festival in Elmira NY.  He had a wonderful personality, a lot of thoughtfulness and kindness that we will never forget.  RIP JOE  LOVE  DINNY & DO

He treated us Canadians as if we were gold when we came to Elmira.  His hospitality was beyond anything you could imagine.  His band members were also wonderful to all of us.

For some unknown reason, he took a special shine to my Dinny.  Why I don’t know!!!!!!!  They joked around all the time and Joe would call Dinny and say ( I just had to call you, you’re driving me crazy if I don’t.)  He called just  a few weeks ago to say that the band had their passports and would be able to come to Kitchener to play for us.  Wayne and Nancy and all of us were so excited that this would happen in the new year.  Unfortunately, the Lord had other plans for Joe, which we are not too happy about.

His spirit and smile will live on in our hearts and remember the good times.  Our sympathy goes out to his dear friend Karen and his devoted band members.
