Greetings, Jazz Fans! Ace Gillett’s Music Director John Olson here to let you know what we have cued up for this week:
Wednesday, 11/7 – 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. 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!
Thursday, 11/8 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm
Tonight we’re welcoming back one of our favorite Jazz couples, Alyson Agemy on Baritone Sax and Teague Bechtel on guitar. You can hear both of them with various groups throughout Northern Colorado, but it’s always a treat when we can feature them together. Alyson and Teague will be joined by Seth Lewis and myself.
Friday, 11/8– 8:00 to Midnight
The Subterraneans welcome Denver-based guitarist Ben Parrish in a Trio setting with Matt Smiley and myself. Ben and Matt play together with a variety of projects in the area. We had this Trio to host last week’s Jam Session and had so much fun that I’m looking forward to a full night of tunes together.
Saturday, 11/9 – 8:00 to Midnight
The Subterraneans welcome back the Ben Markley Trio for Ben’s only appearance in November (don’t miss it!). Ben will be joined by Seth Lewis and myself and will have copies of his new release “Slow Play” available for sale.
Sunday, 11/10 – 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!
