    Hey soulful ones - come out for a fall harvest full of funk at Typhoon this coming Tuesday night with WONK! Joel Alpers (drums), Dan Boissy (sax), Derek Frank (bass), Anthony King (guitar), & Justin Reinhardt (keys) will help you work off your post-Halloween hangover in groovy style. We'll ring in the 11th month with two sets of our vintage-flavored soul jazz, starting at 7:30 & 9:30 pm. No cover, no minimum, just great food & views, full bar, and tasty notes in all the right places. Hope to see you there!
