The Christmas Jazz Session
featuring Barry Leach, Todd Bobo, Maya Kyles, and Raphael Semmes
Our 14th year of live jazz culminates this weekend with our annual Christmas Jazz Special! Always one of the highlights of our musical calendar, the Christmas Special has featured some of the most memorable and talked-about performances on the Jazz Spot.
Joining us again this year is Fusion "Wall of Famer" Barry Leach, whose soothing guitar tones blend perfectly with all those holiday classics. And if the mood is just right, he might channel his legendary impersonation of an Elvis impersonator on "Blue Christmas."
On saxophone will be Todd Bobo, who has become quite a staple on the Jazz Spot over the last few years. On drums we will be welcoming the lovely and talented Maya Kyles. Rounding out the quartet will be our jolly host (and bassist) Raphael Semmes.
And on these jam-packed Christmas shows there always seems to be a musical surprise or two under our tree!
We do expect this show to be standing-room-only, so please arrive early. Once we start at 3:30 they will play straight through to 5:00.
There's no better way to get into the holiday spirit than sipping a Peppermint Mocha listening to live jazz next to the big Christmas Tree in our cozy coffeehouse. Don't miss it!
We hope to announce the 2019 festival date before the end of the year. Stay tuned!
Our most successful festival yet!
Thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed an incredible day of music, food, and fun! We had an impressive turnout for our stellar lineup. Mr. Benny Golson and his quartet were incredible, as were Astral Project, Russell Welch, Aurora Nealand, the Vamps, Southern Komfort and more. Here are some scenes from the day...
