John Nyerges has no shortage of different roles on the Rochester jazz scene. For the last 18 years he's been the pianist at Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra Pops concerts. He's played with Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik for more than 20 years. He can also be found on keyboard in the Madeline Forster Band, the Herb Smith Quartet, and many other groups. You can get to know him a little better when he brings his own quartet to a WGMC Meet the Artist Concert at Lovin' Cup on Thursday. He'll be in good company with Vince Ercolamento on saxophones, Dave Cohen on drums, and Danny Ziemann on bass.
John Nyerges performs Thursday, October 18, 8 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. $10 suggested donation. lovincup.com.
