  • Hodgepodge - $10 Cover

    Saturday, August 30, 2014 - 8:00pm to 10:30pm

    Description:

    Hodgepodge is Matt Chertkoff (guitar), Jonathan Riley (drums), and the recent addition to the band Jared Gold (organ). Matt and Jonathan developed the band during a 4 year steady weekly gig in NYC. Originally the repertoire consisted of jazz standards but grew to include Rock, Pop, and Soul. You might hear a Jimmy Hendrix song like "Hey Joe" followed by Charlie Parker followed by the pop tune "Crazy" by Gnarles Barkley. The process of taking great melodies that are a part of our musical fabric and arranging them for this instrumentation without regard for genre is great fun: hence the name Hodgepodge.

  • Amigos Amigos - $5 Cover

    Saturday, August 30, 2014 - 11:00pm

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the group is that 3 out of the 4 musicians hold formal music degrees. The “Amigos” have a very inviting sound; a one-of-a-kind musical experience for you to share with your friends! This is a show that you won’t want to miss.
