Greetings, Jazz Fans! Ace Gillett’s Music Director John Olson here to let you know what we have cued up for this week:
Wednesday, 10/9 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm
Tonight we’re having our weekly Jazz Jam Session, hosted this week by Teague Bechtel (guitar), David Baker and myself. Drums, Piano, Bass, Guitar Amp 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. Weekly food and drink specials are featured as well!
Thursday, 10/10 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm
The Subterraneans welcome back Alyson Agemy on baritone sax, with Teague Bechtel on guitar, Seth Lewis on bass and myself on drums. Alyson and Teague are one of my favorite “jazz couples” and it’s always a fun night when we can feature them together!
Friday, 10/11 – 8:00 to Midnight
The Subterraneans welcome back local sax-man Andrew Vogt, accompanied by Amaya Arevalo, Erik Applegate and myself. Andrew is a long-time favorite at Ace Gillett’s and has been performing with us since opening night nine and a half years ago! Andrew will have copies of his new CD “Distracted by Donuts” available for purchase.
Saturday, 10/12– 8:00 to Midnight
Seth Lewis and myself will be joined by a mystery guest to be determined in the next 48 hours – check the Facebook page on Saturday for updated details.
Sunday, 10/13 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm
Local favorite Mark Sloniker is back to take his usual Sunday slot behind the piano at Ace Gillett’s. Mark plays all of your favorites and is typically joined by family and friends for his later sets.
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!
