Orestes Vilato was on fire! His new album is Latin Jazz at its best, jazzy but still very danceable!! Tickets were easy to get and easy to pay for and we made dinner reservations as well - Great meal! We had a fabulous time!

Overall this was a good show. Very enjoyable. It would have been nice to know beforehand which style of jazz would be featured on any particular night. Also, be prepared to dress up. The club requires that each attendee either have dinner or...continued

Poncho Sanchez was amazing and so was the dinner service. The ony reason I didn't give it a 5 star was due to the host at the front door. He was not only rude to us but to anyone who dare ask any questions about the event. He is definately not a...continued

Probably would not go again, for the money didn’t seem worth it and they rush you out at the end

Rachelle Ferrell put on a great show, as usual. The energy was good and her band was really tight.

Robben Ford is a great guitarist. It was awesome to see him in such an intimate setting. He was really having a great time playing. The band interactions were fun to watch. It seemed as if the guys had just started playing when the waiters were...continued

Second time to this venue. Loved the music, and the service was good and personable. Overpriced food, but you're there for the show, right? I'd go back again.

Show was wonderful; the venue's atmosphere is great, and so is their sound system.
However, I have two suggestions: 1) They need more than one person to check you in and seat you. Getting in and seated was a very slow process; and 2) Be careful...continued

Stanley Clarke and his band were spectacular. Just felt a little cheated on the time. For the 10 pm show, it didn't start till 10:45, then ended at 12:00. Would've liked a little longer set for what we paid.

Stanley Clarke Quartet was extremely good. Clarke was amazing on the bass, the pianist from Israel and the drummer, from Compton! They were each exquisite in their own right. IT really jammed. Great, eclectic crowd, in an intimate setting. Lots...continued

Stanley Clarke was great. His band of young men and women was awesome! Our bartender was great! Drinks were well prepared. One recommendation would be to figure out how to move the line faster or put some heat lamps outside for guests while waiting.

Steve Tyrell is one excellent singer who puts on a great show. I took my sister for her 82 birthday. She had just lost her husband and Steve's great selection of songs brought joy and tears. Ah, tears of joy. Thank you Catalina and Steve Tyrell.
