Southborough native Dave Pietro makes his return to Steeple Coffeehouse on Saturday night. Last year the saxophonist and composer played the venue with his jazz quartet. This time he’ll bring the New York University Wayne Shorter Ensemble to the stage.

Pietro, who now lives in New York, has performed at jazz clubs, jazz festivals, schools, and concert halls worldwide. He has played with the Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton, and Maynard Ferguson Bands, along with Blood Sweat & Tears, Rosemary Clooney, Harry Connick Jr., Liza Minnelli, and more.

In addition to his gig at Steeple Coffeehouse last February, Pietro returned to Southborough in June to take the stage with the award-winning Trottier Big Band.

Pietro’s show at the Steeple Coffeehouse sold out last year, and organizers say advance sales are strong once again, so best to get your tickets sooner rather than later. Tickets are $18 in advance ($12 for students/seniors) or $21 at the door ($18 for students/seniors). For more information, or to reserve your tickets, visit the Steeple Coffeehouse website (

As always, Tomasso Trattoria will offer a discounted dinner to those going to the show. You can get details and see the menu here. There is also affordable childcare offered by the Pilgrim Church Youth Group during the show. The cost is $10 for the first child and $5 for each additional child ($20 max per family).
