Ace Gillett’s Musical Happenings: Week of 11.27.19

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, 11/27 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

Tonight we’re having our weekly Jazz Jam Session, hosted this week by Ben Parrish (guitar), Domi Edson (bass) and myself. 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!

Closed

Thursday, 11/28

Ace Gillett’s will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Dawn Clement

Friday, 11/29– 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome Dawn Clement on piano and vocals. I’ve been hearing great things about Dawn from her Denver performances and I’m excited to play with her for the first time at Ace Gillett’s, where we’ll be joined by Seth Lewis.

Steve Denny

Saturday, 11/30 – 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome pianist Steve Denny back to town! Steve played a lot at Ace Gillett’s in our early days and has spent the last seven years performing and teaching in the New York City area. Steve will be joined by Bill McCrossen and myself.

Mark Sloniker

Sunday, 12/1 – 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.

 

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! Also note that we’re working on plans for our annual New Year’s Eve Bash, so save the date for an evening filled with dancing and celebrating!

 

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