We do ask for a small cover charge. Too often, local musicians are paid poorly (or not at all and expected to work for tips). We are leading the fight to pay for musicians a decent amount for their contribution. Respect our Musicians and Keep Music Alive!

Nancy Donnelly Quartet
“Nancy Donnelly (Vocals) is an exciting singer whose voice is nestled nicely somewhere in between jazz and soul, a rich, warm and powerful sound”. Peter Eldridge (New York Voices). Nancy’s ability to blend a spectrum of musical styles is attributed to her wide array of musical influences and experiences and had the opportunity to work with several Blues and R&B groups. Nancy realized her true passion for jazz when she performed with saxophonist Igor Butman and has played in many of the famous jazz clubs, such as The Village Gate, Iridium, Birdland and the 55 Bar. Nancy’s critically acclaimed debut CD features Peggy Stern, Jay Anderson and Matt Wilson.
Peter Einhorn’s (Guitar) most recent recording is “Seems Like Old Times”. Among them are Karl Berger’s “StillPoint”, Ira Sullivan’s “Strings Attached”, as well as recordings as a leader including “Bouganvillea”. He has performed and/or recorded with Joe Lovano, Jimmy Cobb, David Amram, John Abercrombie, Steve Kuhn, Eddie Daniels, Roland Hanna and Plácido Domingo at the Met Opera.
Jim Donica (Bass) is a bassist, composer, teacher, sideman and bandleader who has performed and recorded with some of the finest artists in the world. Donica can be heard on landmark recordings such as Maynard Ferguson’s, “Big Bop Nouveau”, the soundtrack recording of “Permanent Record” and “Trash City”, with Punk Rocker Joe Strummer and with MCA recording artists The David Becker Tribune, on “Long Peter Madsen” and “Siberian Express”. His long standing and ongoing gig as bassist for the legendary, Chita Rivera, has taken him around the world playing for audiences who just can’t get enough of Broadway royalty.
