The long running Wednesday night Wine & Song music series, hosted by South Pasadena musician Brad Colerick and focused on Americana/singer-songwriter genres, is getting a companion show – a jazz/blues night every Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Kicking off the Thursday jazz series on September 8 will be the Elliott Caine Quintet. Inspired by ’60s “Blue Note”-style jazz, as well as by the music of Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria, the band plays original compositions along with the works of Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Donald Byrd and others.
Last September, the popular Wine & Song series moved to the former golf store at the Arroyo Seco Golf Course in South Pasadena. The store was converted into the “Blue Guitar,” a stylish 75-seat listening room complete with stage, spotlights, curtains, bistro tables, candlelight, and a full restaurant/bar next door. The club received its moniker due to the neon accent light hanging in the front window.
Table seating is $15 and general admission is $10. For ticket information, go to: www.blueguitar.club.
