    WEST MILFORD-West Milford's Music at the Mission presents the Tony Trishka Band on Saturday, Jan. 15 at 8 p.m. The Tony Trischka Band is said to have a jam band sensibility along with serious musical chops and influences from bluegrass, jazz, funk, blues, Eastern music and American old-time music. The compositions of banjo innovator Trischka and sax player Michael Amendola are supported by the sly virtuosity of bassist Bob Bowen, drummer Scott Newman and guitarist Rolf Sturm, with cameo vocals by David Johannsen, Loudon Wainwright III and Jeifer Kimball. A pure delight. "New Deal by the Tony Trischka Band is a far-reaching odyssey across the landscape of America. From the two lane black tops of the rural counties to the interstate arteries that plunge one into downtown nerve centers. Listeners are going to need to pack both bib overalls and formal wear for this trip.
