It's February again and it appears Phil and Willy can't seem to come to a consensus on the state of winter over the next 2 months. Nonetheless, it's Black History Month and there's no reason we can't get the party started. Spring will come eventually. Until then, we encourage all of you to join us throughout the month of February as we try to stay warm with great food, whiskey and some swingin music. This month we will also have some very special guest appearances at our shows to celebrate Black History Month by helping us trace the roots of Jazz and Blues music through traditional West-African rhythms, Slave Spirituals and the eventual emergence of Blues and Jazz that would influence generations of Modern American Music.
Catch us :
- February 17, 2015 9-12am @ Gate 403 Bar and Grill w/ Sean Stanley & Sokhna-Dior
- February 22, 2015 7-9pm @ JAZZ BISTRO "Rhythm then Blues" w/ Sean Stanley, Sokhna-Dior and the Jazz Band, with The Mande Music Ensemble (MME) w/ Anna Melnikoff (djembe), Frank Norqua (djembe), Alice Sellwood (Sangban/Balafon), Todd Martin (Kenkeni/Balafon) and Sokhna-Dior (Dundunba)
