His dynamic music will get you up out of your chairs.

MIDDLE ACT: Paula Atherton starts at 6:16 PM - 7:15 PM 

Some contemporary jazz artists just seem to carry a very valid “can’t miss” aura about them. The lovely and talented saxtress/vocalist Paula Atherton is certainly one of them. Out with her fifth release, Shake It, she does, in fact, shake up the groove, the soul, and just plain comfy vibes nestled in all c-jazz fans. Of course, if you’re a fan of hers, you have come to expect this as simply part of her beautiful and powerful music and character.


HEADLINER ACT:  Eric Darius starts  at  7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
