For those of us unlucky enough not to be in samois!
Tonight (Wednesday June 25th)!
Gypsy jazz in a basement lounge, you ask? Yes, and with many special
guests this week from the great Django in June event in Northampton,
Ma- it's bound to be a special Jam! We're happy to report the sound
carries nicely through the double
doors onto Bar Reis's lovely back patio. Please join Franglais for our
weekly set and hot club jam session this Wednesday, In the last few
weeks we've had some very talented guests, and had a lot of fun. Come
check it out! This week the schedule is as follows:
8 pm-ish: one set by Franglais (Ben Wood and Bobby Sexton on guitars,
Piruz Partow on bass,
Eve Seltzer on vocals and Monica Smith on violin)
9:30 pm-ish: jam session for whomever cares to join us
Park Slope's Bar Reis, located at 375 Fifth Avenue--between 5th and
6th streets--is accessible by the F, M, and R trains at 9th Street and
4th Avenue. The bar has a nice selection of draft and bottled beer,
some good wine, and talented mixologists (Wednesday nights we have Mo,
who in keeping with the spirit of Franglais, has changed her name to
Meaux--at least on Wednesdays). No kitchen, but they do have an
impressive collection of take-out menus.
See you there,
