BBVD at Harrah's! (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Mar 16, 2006 2:58 pm GMT


That's right, the world famous Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is playing at Harrah's Rincon Casino this Sat. Mar. 18th. Initially, the concert was SOLD OUT, but after a little finagling, the management has decided to open up 40 more seats to accommodate dancers. They put the tickets on sale just a few hours ago, but they are bound to sell out soon.

BUY TICKETS HERE

Good luck! Hope to see you there.

Last Regular Firehouse Dance in March (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Mar 16, 2006 3:26 am GMT


Come on out TONIGHT for our final La Jolla Firehouse dance in the month of March! That's right, that motley mob of melodious miscreants known as the SD Junior Theater will be taking over the Firehouse for the last two Thursdays in March for their annual Spring play. Therefore, we will be moving next Thursday's Firehouse dance to the Kava Gallery, a.k.a. the Jitterbox location. And, the following Thursday (Thurs. Mar. 30th), we will be cancelling the Firehouse dance in lieu of the Bal Rendezvous.

Everything will return back to normal on Thurs. Apr. 6th -- and there are no more scheduled interruptions until Sept. 2006 (just keepin' my fingers crossed)!

Please make a note of these changes. Thank you for your understanding.

JIVE ACES CONCERT CANCELLED!
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Mar 09, 2006 5:50 am GMT
Bad News, Guys! It turns out that the Jive Aces have to spend the evening of Mar. 23rd recording their new album in LA, so they are not able to come down to San Diego. The Good News is that they have to come back in 3 months to finish recording, so they promised that they would come play for us then. In the meantime, the Firehouse dance will be moved to the Jitterbox location for Thurs. Mar. 23rd ONLY!! More info to come...

WHEN: THURS. MAR. 23RD
TIME: 9PM TO 12AM

This Friday, come to the closing night party of the Jitterbox as we bring you the 40's trad jazz stylings of Beston Barnett (pictured below) and his Speakeasy Quartet. For a sample of their music, please click on the pic below:



Discussion HERE

About Beston Barnett and the Speakeasy Quartet:

There’s not much more wonderful in the world than the mellow tone of a clarinet playing “Mood Indigo”. The guys from the Speak Easy Quartet have simple ambitions: they just want to play it like it was – when it was unamplified, melodic, swinging, dreamy, full of sly surprise. From the Prohibition through the Second Big War, the glory days of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington are being recaptured humbly and with humor in San Diego by four musicians who know it don’t mean a thing without that swing.
