    John Vanore and Abstract Truth Friday, May 8, 2015 Doors: 8:30 pm / Show: 9:00 pm World Cafe Live Philadelphia - Upstairs $12 - $15 + Fees A Woody Herman alumnus, John has a strong place in his heart for the power and energy that is part of being a big band, while his passion for improvising draws him to the intimacy and interplay of the small group.
