EVERY SUNDAY     JAZZ BRUNCH WORKSHOP     NOON 'TIL 4PM

Our Sunday Jazz Brunch Workshop is a magical, musical phenomenon that everyone should experience. The host trio of Burgess, Mitchell & Stetz (featuring the notable talents of pianist & vocalist Greg Burgess, award-winning worldly drummer Steve Mitchell, and bassist Bill Stetz) welcomes musicians of all kinds to join in the musical adventure. Live and inspirational, you'll watch, listen and smile as songs take shape and evolve in an unrehearsed performance ... a real workshop to hone skills and express musical vision. Many guest musicians & vocalists are always on-hand to "sit in" as soloists or to be called upon to create a whole, new trio, quartet or larger ensemble, too. It's a ritual that you'll want to be part of every Sunday! Because of the popularity of our Sunday brunch, reservations are strongly encouraged. Please call us at (570) 326-4700. Brunch is served from 9AM-2PM.
Friday, October 20     Mike Brown     9PM-MID

The great American road trip is alive and kicking in Grammy Nominee Mike Brown’s songs. All the mysterious, enchanting back roads that all us romantics sit around daydreaming about come alive on American Hotel. Listening to the album, you can tell Mike’s logged lots of windshield time, that he’s stopped in plenty of small town cafes to break bread with the type of familiar all-American characters we road warriors know so well. They’re what have given Mike’s project legs and taught it to run like no other

Onstage he also occasionally covers Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, Bruce Springsteen and others. In the late '80s, after graduating from the Guitar Institute of Technology, he formed and fronted an L.A. band called Low Echo.

These days, he performs both solo and with his roots-rock band, Graveyard Rooster, wherever and whenever opportunity allows.
