Happy 4th of July! There's no better way to celebrate our nation's independence than with American music...and that's BLUES. We're tickled to have the Bridget Kelly Band back from Florida to help us celebrate too! Now, since it's on a Wednesday, we're going to treat the show like a "school night" and have the show from 5-8 PM. Stay tuned for some other fun details!
Join us for a special show with Steve Grismore from Iowa City. Today, he will be at the Bellevue Library as part of the "Libraries Rock" summer series, teaching kids how to play Jazz and Blues. Then, he's coming down to the Flatted Fifth stage for a jazz show. Kids, bring your families and check out the teacher's mad skills! Showtime 5 PM (even though it's a Friday.)
It's Father's Day, and we think the Dad in your life would like to hear some jazz! Join us this evening with Steve Grismore's Jazz Trio. Jazz guitar, bass and drums, some top shelf whiskey and an award-winning Flatted Fifth meal will bring a round of smiles. Showtime 5 PM.
Round out your Memorial Day weekend with a Flatted Fifth welcome to Mike Zabrin. So here's the deal. He's super talented, plays Blues, Jazz & Funk. Since it's a Sunday, we asked him to do a Jazz Funk show! Trust us. We'll have him back for a Blues show too:) Can't wait. Hope to see you there. Showtime 5 PM.
From the moment Lauren Mitchell first came to Flatted Fifth, we have been hooked. In fact, Lauren will be coming to Flatted Fifth twice this season, May 25 and August 24. FYI- both of these dates are FRIDAYS!
If you dig powerful, soulful vocals, it's important to drop everything and come to this show. Her deep love of the Blues and ability to connect with her audience makes our souls smile. From Tampa Bay, FL. Showtime 8 PM.
Commons Collective is a jazz quintet lead by New York City based jazz pianist/composer Jon Snell.
Established in the fall of 2011, while students at the University of Northern Iowa, Commons Collective came together in a school ensemble coached by renowned jazz educator Dr. Bob Washut, and quickly went on to become "one of the most popular young, professional groups in Eastern Iowa” (The Gazette, Hoopla Now). Their performances feature an eclectic combination of original compositions, contributed by all group members, drawing upon influences from blues to rock, classical to pop music, yet firmly rooted in improvisation and the jazz tradition. Since their inception, Commons Collective has recorded and released three CDs, and a few of their performance credits include the Iowa City Jazz Festival Main Stage, Opus Concert Café, Theatre Cedar Rapids, Campbell Steele Gallery, ARTaplooza Cedar Falls, Rozz-Tox, and the Des Moines Arts Festival. Commons Collective was recently ranked #1 as all-time favorite performance in 88.3 KCCK-FM’s “Jazz Under the Stars” Poll.
“Hope” marks the band’s fourth CD release.
