    I'll be playing blues with Paul Garrett (bass) and friends all night long. This friendly neighborhood bar is always a good time! Free show. 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm is our happy hour set. Then, we'll play from 9:00 pm - 1:00 am when - as Mojo Mark puts it - unexpected special guests are expected to sit in. Come on out!
