KJ and I will sing a couple of songs each from the Great American Songbook.  There is a variety of music performed at this jam session, with a focus on traditional jazz but swing-style music also makes an appearance.  Not strictly a cabaret event, but many of the songs you will hear often also appear in cabaret shows as well.  Hosted for many years by John Bennett on piano and Jack Dawes on drums, the rest of the instrumentation varies from week to week, but typically there will be a complement of guitar, banjo, saxaphones, trombone, trumpet and more.  Casual atmostphere, and a fun evening–come join us!  This is your chance to hear KJ play the accordian–he’s entertaining!
