Ace Gillett’s Musical Happenings: Week of 7.3.19

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, 7/3 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

Tonight we’re back for our weekly Jazz Jam Session, hosted by Spencer Zweifel, Seth Lewis and myself. Drums, Piano, Bass and a Vocal mic are all provided. As always, we ask that 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. Now that we’re on a weekly schedule, I’m hoping our jam will be a destination location for jazz musicians to meet and network with like-minded players.


Thursday, 7/4

Ace Gillett’s will be closed for a Private Event and to observe the Fourth of July Holiday.

Jenna McLean

Friday, 7/5 – 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome Jenna McLean on vocals, accompanied by Spencer Zweifel, Seth Lewis and myself. Jenna’s album “Brighter Day” has been very well received by fans and critics alike since its’ release earlier this year. The album also features Ace Gillett’s regulars Steve Kovalcheck, Tom Amend and Seth Lewis. She is one of my favorite vocalists to work with and will have CD’s for sale on Friday!

Jeff Jenkins Trio

Saturday, 7/6 – 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome Jeff Jenkins in a Trio setting with Seth Lewis and myself. Jeff was recently featured by KUVO Jazz Radio for their Local Musician Spotlight – Read here >

Mark Sloniker

Sunday, 7/7 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

Mark Sloniker is back playing solo piano in the Lounge from 7:00 to 11:00 pm. Mark is a weekly favorite at Ace Gillett’s and is usually joined by family and friends for his second and third sets. Mark has earned his status as a local legend, having undoubtably played more nights of live music in Fort Collins than anyone else on record!


As you may have already heard, renovations for Ace Gillett’s are on hold for the time being. Spread the word that we’ll continue featuring your favorite food, cocktails and Live Jazz Wednesday through Sunday nights until further notice. If you haven’t had a chance to see the renovations at the Armstrong, come on down and admire the transformation!


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