August 11-14, 2016 was the 7th year of The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival. Having grown from it's original Warwick Valley Jazz Festival, the HVJF has shown two principal growth factors: 1.) The number of participating musicians and venues 2.) In 2014, it moved from being singularly represented by Orange County as towns in Ulster and Dutchess took part.
The central theme has been to feature local talent on the same schedule as a few top names in jazz. 2016 was a celebration of the return to local. 15 shows in four days, 12 of them in Warwick. The singular marque name was replaced by highlighting the regions deep resource of local jazz talent, and mixing in some new folks on the outer Valley edges.

Slide Attack is a seasoned collection of five fantastic musicians fluent in the language of swing, blues, modern jazz and a wide spectrum of genres. Boldly led by two lead trombonists, Alan Goidel and Howard Levy, the band fills the room with the brassy harmonies of well-chosen jazz arrangements, both old and new. At the 9th Note Jazz Supper Club in Stamford, Connecticut on August 3, 2016, this group gave the audience a sufficient helping of each instrument that also included Paul Mariconda - piano, Chuck Zeuren - drums, and Dr. Lyn Christe - bass.
Sunday, August 21st at 5:00 pm will mark the return of the wonderful Matthew Rohde, the classical guitarist who has graced our season for the last several years. The program this year will include two Domenico Scarlatti Sonatas as well as newer music from Venezuela, Brazil and Cuba by Antonio Lauro, Sergio Assad, Marco Pereira, Leo Brouwer and Eduardo Morales-Caso!
CertaPro Painters of Orange County is key sponsor of the Warwick Lions’ Annual Labor Day 5K Run/Walk
CertaPro Painters of Orange County is proud to once again be a key sponsor of the Warwick Lions’ Annual Labor Day 5K Run/Walk.
Kicking off at 9:00 am on Monday September 5, 2016 at The Warwick Middle School, West Street Extension in Warwick, the 25th annual Race, Fitness Walk and Children’s Fun Run will benefit the Lions Club High School Scholarships and Community Projects.
According to Brendan McManus, owner of Warwick's CertaPro Painters of Orange County, this event is truly a family affair. Warwick Lions Club members George and Carol McManus, Brendan’s parents, had been instrumental in organizing the race since its inception. After Carol’s death from pancreatic cancer in 2006, Brendan and his wife Madeleine joined George, manning the registration tables, promoting and organizing what has become known as The Carol McManus Memorial 5K Race.
