Jazz Jam Sessions in Nashville

So unfortunately Cafe CoCo’s cancellation of live music on their stage has left Nashville’s only weekly jazz jam session homeless for the time being.  I would very much like to continue the weekly session, but obviously need to find a new venue.  I’ll keep you updated on the status as I try to figure it out. Please let me know if you have any thoughts about the jazz jam’s continuation (or discontinuation) and if you have any ideas about a new location. – evan

Good times were had at Cafe CoCo this past Sunday night.  The band played well and had a ball, as did the audience.  If you didn’t make it out and would like to hear some of it, I’ve put most of the show up for a free download .

Gigs the Weekend of June 6 and 7

I’ve got a couple of gigs going on this weekend that I want to tell you about.  Saturday night I’ll be playing with the Justin Conn Band down at The Pond in Franklin.  If the show is anything like last night’s rehearsal, it will groove hard and be a fun time.  Starts at 9pm, only $5. If you’re looking for a place to rid yourself of a Sunday morning hangover, come out to the Green Hills Whole Foods where I’ll be playing duets with Jonathan Epley from 11 – 1. And last but not least, my quintet Cobb’s Mob! will be performing at Cafe CoCo once again at 8pm this Sunday night.  I’m excited about the lineup and the tunes we’ve got prepared.  As always, …
