We really enjoy Bad Influence and the Ori Naftaly Band. And we so happy to see that the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club is bringing lots of folks. We live very close and really enjoy having live music so available.

Nice space and the band was great. Service was pretty good for a club. The food was just OK, but that seems standard for a music club. If you are particular about food... continued

If I could rate the music and food separately, music would be 5+. Blue Sky 5 was fabulous; the right mix of vocal and instrumental--all players extremely talented. ... continued

The singer is very uninspired. I felt bad for the orchestra because a small house is tough, but they played some good pieces.

Venue was fun and much enjoyed the performance.
Drinks were good. Food was "OK" and expensive relative to value.

Fun funky dance band - great singers. Mushroom soup good, salad skimpy, but Long Island Iced Tea very nice. :)

Great venue. Not a bad seat in the house. Great acoustics. Great service - a little slow, but yeah, I was not in a hurry. It's about a 3 city block walk from the Bethesda Metro stop, so there's no excuse not to go b/c it's easy to get there.

It's a very nice venue…club style with tables and chairs (if it's full, there's theater seating in the back). Escapade was excellent doing a variety from Motown to "Happy."…There were three singers who varied the lead and all were terrific.

One of the absolutely best shows I have ever seen. What a performer!
He didn't want to stop playing. Two and a half hours with no break and fabulous music.
The place is a great venue.. we expect to return many times.
