Ace Gillett’s Musical Happenings: Week of 9.18.19

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, 9/18 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

Tonight we’re having our weekly Jazz Jam Session, hosted this week by Teague Bechtel (guitar), Seth Lewis 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!

Gabriel Mervine

Thursday, 9/19 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm

The Subterraneans welcome back Gabriel Mervine on trumpet and flugelhorn. Gabriel is always in high demand on the Denver Jazz Scene, and we’re happy to be able to feature him a couple of times a month in Fort Collins. He will be joined by Tom Amend on piano, Seth Lewis on bass and myself on drums.

Andrew Vogt

Friday, 9/20 – 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome back local sax-man Andrew Vogt, accompanied by Seth Lewis, myself and a fourth I’m waiting to hear back from! It’s always a good time with Andrew, so come on down and see if takes an opportunity or two to “walk the bar.”

Amaya Arevalo

Saturday, 9/21– 8:00 to Midnight

The Subterraneans welcome talented pianist Amaya Arevalo in a Trio setting with Connor Koch and myself. Amaya is part of the Jazz Program at UNC and joined our regular rotation of performers last month. Come on down and see what all of the buzz is about!

Mark Sloniker

Sunday, 9/22 – 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!

 

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