The November 2016 Tri-State Jazz concert will be at the Haddonfield United Methodist Church in Haddonfield, NJ.  The Midiri Brothers Sextet will be featured at that concert.

The Midiri Brothers have delighted swing dancers and been acclaimed by critics at jazz festivals throughout the country for many years. L.A. Jazz Magazine said, "Catch them whenever you can! Their sextet is one of the most exciting small group swing units around today." Bob Fallstrom wrote in the Decatur Herald-Review, "I've seen and heard hundreds of clarinet players. Joe Midiri is the best ... I've seen every Joe Midiri set here [and was]enthralled by his tone, his technique, his creativity, his imagination and sound." Of Paul Midiri, Brian D. Clifford in The Express-Time said, "His amazing virtuosity brought to mind some of the great vibes players of our time."

Joe and Paul Midiri have recorded with groups ranging from trios to big bands featuring the arrangements of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and the Dorsey Brothers as well as Paul’s original arrangements and compositions.
