"Music Making Community" a third year

Jazz On Broad launched at The Hopewell Valley Bistro in January 2018, bringing good music, good people, and good food together on a weekly basis. It's not like this everywhere – try it on for size.

Tom Tallitsch

Tom Tallitsch Trio

Tom Tallitsch, tenor; Matt Davis, guitar; Steve Varner, bass

Marty Grosz

Marty Grosz 90th Birthday Do

with Danny Tobias (trumpet, alto horn), Scott Robinson (bass sax, kitchen sink), and Gary Cattley (bass, tuba)

Guitarist, vocalist, and jazz historian Marty Grosz recorded his first date in 1950 with Dick Wellstood on piano and veteran NOLA bassist, Pops Foster. Since then, he's made dozens of recordings. A virtuoso of the acoustic archtop guitar with a vocal style in the Fats Waller mold, his music and performing are time capsules of the 1920s–'30s. Marty has had guest spots on Prairie Home Companion, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and the Today Show, and his terrific autobiography full of Who's Who dates and places is coming out in March. Come say hello and have some cake.

Michelle Lordi

Michelle Lordi Band: music from "Break Up with the Sound"

with Nick Millevoi guitar, Matthew Parrish bass

Audrey Welber

Audrey Welber Trio

with Noriko Kamo organ, Rob Henderson drums

Besides her regular hits with Swingadelic and Klez Dispensers, Audrey’s fiery playing on saxophone, clarinet, and flute sparks numerous small groups, big bands, and urban gospel groups. She joins “especially fluid clarinet” (Wall Street Journal) to “inspired,” “muscular,” “gloriously pure-toned” sax playing for a night of straight-out, straight-ahead blowing
