Greetings, Jazz Fans! Ace Gillett’s Music Director John Olson here to let you know what we have cued up for this week:
Wednesday, 9/25 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm
Tonight we’re having our weekly Jazz Jam Session, hosted this week by Ryan Fourt (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!
Thursday, 9/26 – 7:00 to 11:00 pm
The Subterraneans welcome back Tom Amend on piano, in a Trio setting with Seth Lewis and myself. Tom plays at Ace Gillett’s frequently, but it’s not too often that he’s featured playing trio. Don’t miss this special night!
Friday, 9/27 – 8:00 to Midnight
The Subterraneans welcome Jenna McLean on vocals, accompanied by Steve Kovalcheck, Seth Lewis and myself. Jenna is still riding the wave of a successful west-coast regional tour that she completed last month. Steve and Seth were part of that touring group and are very familiar with her repertoire. It’s always a fun evening when Jenna is performing – put this on your calendar as the perfect date night!
Saturday, 9/28– 8:00 to Midnight
Due to a cancellation, we’re still waiting to hear who will be joining the Subterraneans on Saturday night. Please check the Facebook page for updates on who will be joining Seth and myself on Saturday.
Sunday, 9/29 – 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!
