Greetings - Even if you have to hike in from Timbuktu, I guarantee you that this week's shows will leave you feeling that it was well worth the effort! Bona fide New Orleans funk and jazz, a whole lot of sax, and one of the most affecting young singer-songwriters we've met in a long while--all in the best listening room anywhere. But in the spirit of making things as easy as possible for you, here are three parking tips to help you with your visit to Caffe Lena in August:

1. Come early. The track let's out at 6 PM. Before 6, it's a lot easier to find a parking spot.
2. It's a lot less crowded to the east of our block. Circular, LaFayette, Regent and Lake are all good options.
3. The track is closed on Tuesdays, and downtown is far less crowded. We often have great shows on Tuesday night in the summer (like this week's Jazz night!).


See you at the show,
Sarah

Glen David Andrews Band
In-person tickets
Watch on Caffe Lena TV

 

With his big sound, energy and charisma, Glen David Andrews is part of the Big Easy's musical who’s who. Grandson of R&B singer Jessie Hill, brother of Rebirth Brass Band drummer Derrick Tabb and trumpeter Travis “Trumpet Black” Hill of the Treme Funktet, and cousin of Trombone Shorty and James “12” Andrews, Andrews claims that Anthony “Tuba Fats” Lacen played him into the world by aiming his tuba bell at him, in utero. Born in the oldest Black community in the USA, he learned the history of the brass band tradition firsthand. You'll be jumping out of your seat for this night of jazz, gospel, rock, blues and funk with Andrews leading a killer band!

Grace Kelly
In-person tickets
Watch on Caffe Lena TV



“If you want to see a great performance, hear great jazz musicians, and even feel like you can bring a friend who isn’t sure he/she likes jazz, then Grace Kelly is a must.”  
 
Sophisticated Living

Saxophonist Kelly has rocked the jazz world with sold-out concert halls, 13 acclaimed albums and a resume that includes Barack Obama's inauguration and a stint in the house band for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” – all before reaching her mid-twenties. Her electric charisma and infectious positivity weave through jazz, funk, and ballads.
