This weekend we move the jam to our new home at North Street Cabaret. Located at 610 North Street on Madison’s east side, North Street Cabaret is a new venue that hosts live music from local and touring acts, especially the exceptional jazz community that enriches our lives in Madison. Here you can enjoy great music in an appealing room with great acoustics and killer Cajun food.
Our house band will be Ken Hoffman (ts), Johannes Wallmann (pno), Ben Ferris (bs), and Rodrigo Villanueva (dr). Of the two featured tunes, “St. James Infirmary” is the first, easier selection. It’s a venerable eight bar blues associated with the earliest days of the New Orleans music that we now call “jazz.” We’ll follow it with the more harmonically complex “Stella by Starlight.”
Come on out to make our first jam at North Street Cabaret a success! Tell your friends! See you there!
