Ace Gillett’s Musical Happenings – Week of 12.18.19

Greetings, Jazz Fans! Ace Gillett’s Music Director John Olson here to let you know what we have cued up for this week:

Jazz Jam Session

Wednesday, 12/18 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

Tonight we’re having our weekly Jazz Jam Session, hosted this week by Jack Roben (guitar), Seth Lewis (bass) and myself and drums. It’s the last Jam Session of the year, as next week we’ll be closed for Christmas. Drums, Piano, Bass, Guitar Amp and a Vocal mic are all provided. As always, we ask that all interested performers follow our musician’s dress code of suit and tie for men and cocktail attire for women. All playing levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. Weekly food and drink specials are featured as well! We only have two more jam sessions before we close for Renovations on January 1st, so come on down and sit in!

Jack Roben

Thursday, 12/19 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

The Subterraneans welcome back Jack Roben on guitar. Jack will be joined by Jeff Jenkins, Seth Lewis and myself. Jack will also be part of the “Ace Gillett’s All-stars” featured on New Year’s Eve.

Briana Harris

Friday, 12/20– 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome back Briana Harris on Alto Sax. Bri has been incredibly busy with the Burroughs and other projects this Fall/Winter and we’re happy to have her for one more performance in 2019! Briana will be joined by Jeff Jenkins, Bill McCrossen and myself.

Steve Denny

Saturday, 12/21 – 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome back Steve Denny on piano! Steve has spent most of the last 7 and a half years playing around New York City, and we’re happy to have him back in Colorado. Steve will be joined by Seth Lewis and myself.

Mark Sloniker

Sunday, 12/22 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

Local Legend Mark Sloniker is back behind the piano to play all of your favorites. Mark usually plays solo for the first set and is joined by family and friends throughout the evening. Only two more times to see Mark at Ace Gillett’s in 2019!


Don’t forget to get your tickets for Ace Gillett’s New Year’s Eve Celebration, available online now (and selling fast – this event always sells out, so don’t wait too long to get your tickets!).


We can finally announce the exciting news – Beginning January 1, Ace Gillett’s will begin a renovation and redesign project! We look forward to delighting our customers with a newly designed space, updated menu and delicious bar offerings, while preserving our rich history, live music and familiar comfort. Don’t worry, you won’t be without us for long – doors will reopen mid-February!


As always, Thank You for supporting Live Jazz at Ace Gillett’s – I hope to see you there soon!
