Gypsy Jazz Jam
This is an inclusive acoustic jam where each player in the circle gets to call up a tune, and all players get to play on each tune.The tunes called up are usually in the Django Fakebook which can be Googled, downloaded (free) and printed...or pulled up on an iPad. Many jammers have the charts and are willing to share the view.Fine musicians show up for this jam, making it both a playing and a listening pleasure.

Judith Lerner: Hand Pans
Hand Pans, if you’ve not seen or heard of them before, are a fairly new instrument. Invented in Switzerland in 2000, they’re a relative of the Steel Pan and are, as the name implies, designed to be played by hand. With 7,8, or 9 outer notes, and a central DING, they come in various tunings with exotic names. Each note is oval and has beautiful harmonics and overtones. The enchanting sound of these instruments bewitches everyone who hears them.

Meet and greet
In addition to providing delicious, healthy food, we are a culturally-rich venue for music, art, literature and community events. Unless otherwise noted, there are no cover or admission charges, and we hope that you will tip the performers generously. In order to bring you these wonderful experiences, we must insist upon a $5 minimum purchase per person. (Reservations for evening events are taken for dinner guests only. )
Note to parents: The intimacy of our space makes it a wonderful place to bring children and introduce them to the thrill of live music (and to teach them proper audience behavior)!
Tuesdays are always quiet - a night for conversation, or scrabble with a friend, or the Very Veggie Book Club.
