Always a fun night on Jazz Mondays! Can't beat the cost either at under $20. per person. Only $5. for music if you resist the home style catered eats in the basement. Top level jazz musicians always scheduled.

A great time for only $5.00. Had a chance to hear local vocalists Bonnie Harris and Julian Hipkins Jr sing some old school tunes along a number of Christmas favorites.
