Thursday, October 16th – Brian Kooken CD release
An Die Musik, 409 N. Charles St. at 8:00 PM – $15 ($18 at the door)
I once saw Brian Kooken perform at a church up in the county back in ’05 and he killed it. That was long before I had any exposure to jazz, so I look forward to seeing him again almost ten years later. He’s a local and a a fantastic guitarist. Buy your tickets ahead of time in case of a sell out.
