Chuck Mangione's bandmates perish in crash
Two members of Chuck Mangione's band were among those who died in the plane crash in Buffalo last night.
A publicist for the famous jazz musician identified the band members as Gerry Niewood and Coleman Mellett. Through a rep, Mangione said, "I'm in shock over the horrible, heartbreaking tragedy."
The band was supposed to play a show in Buffalo tonight. That show has been canceled.
RIP gentlemen...thanks for the music!
