Smooth Jazz and Fine Dining – Woody’s

Woodys-top-logo1

 

Woody’s is a cool place, in downtown Palm Springs. It is a 50’s diner in front, that serves the best burgers in town.

In back, it’s a cool speakeasy jazz club, the kind you might see in Manhattan. Woody’s is a listening room, which means that people actually listen to the music.

Imagine that. Drinks and food at Woody’s are very reasonable.

So if you’re in Palm Springs, California, come out to Woody’s.  If you’re not in Palm Springs, come on out and make a night or two of it!  Book a room at the Riviera Hotel, right around the corner.  It’s the coolest hotel–it’s got a 60’s vibe, and you feel like you might run into Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin strolling the hallways.

The Slim Man Band is back at Woody’s on Wednesday, April 23rd. It’s gonna be another sell-out, so book a table early. Greg “What The Hail” Vail is playing sax, Patrick “Ever” Ready will be on drums, and Tateng Katindig-The Killa From Manila-will be playing keys. It’s gonna be a blast. Admission is free.

The endless Arizona sky will be filled with a galaxy of stars day and night during the Arizona Jazz Festival slated for October 25-27, 2013 at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. More than 13,000 contemporary jazz and soul fans from across the nation are expected to flock to the lavish desert resort to enjoy performances by a stellar slate of Grammy-winners and chart-toppers along with a weekend of revelry. Tickets are on sale now for the three-day festival or as a single-day event and are available online at www.arizonajazzfestival.com and by calling 602.244.8444.

The Arizona Jazz Festival opens with an evening of seduction starting with the tantalizing pairing of saxophonist Eric Darius and R&B vocalist-producer Lyfe Jennings, who will set the mood for marquee-topper Maxwell, a Grammy-winning soul balladeer. Stick around for the official after-party at the resort.

Live music begins Saturday when nattily-attired guitarist Nick Colionne and new jazz swagger sax player J. White hit the stage followed by a trio set by saxophonists Warren Hill and Tom Braxton with blues-based guitar slinger Jeff Golub. Powerhouse tenors Gerald Albright, Richard Elliot and Euge Groove will blow a fierce sax storm in the desert before ten-time Grammy winner Chaka Khan belts out a song list filled with her massive crossover hits. The Queen of Neo Soul Erykah Badu will reign over majestic grooves and Baduizms preceding a set by “Uncle” Charlie Wilson, a 2013 BET lifetime achievement award winner, crooning cuts from his Grammy-nominated R&B songbook. After the concert, a number of the festival artists will head into the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa for an all-star jam.

It’s going to be a great-looking Sunday when saxophonists Jessy J and Michael Lington link with keyboardist Jonathan Fritzen to open the final day followed by a neo soul session from vocalist Eric Benet. Emerging saxmen Elan Trotman and Dominic Amato will accompany R&B chanteuse Melanie Fiona for an outing. Captivating multi-instrumentalist Brian Culbertson will inject a potent dose of funk-jazz into the mix during a high-octane performance before fellow blue-eyed soul man Robin Thicke blurs the lines during a set list certain to include the #1 summer smash “Blurred Lines.” Closing the festival is edgy multiplatinum R&B personality and reality television star Keyshia Cole.

“We pulled out all the stops for the Arizona Jazz Festival, which is perhaps the most spectacular lineup we have ever presented.

After more than two decades of vacancy, one of the first dedicated movie theaters built by the U.S. Army in the United States was brought back to life. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, awarded a $16.9-million contract to Lampasas-based RKJ Construction Inc. to renovate and build an addition to the 75-year-old main post theater on Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio.

Many of the theater’s architecturally distinctive elements were retained. It was built in 1935 in a Spanish Colonial Revival style with white-stucco exterior, arched entryways and a bell tower reminiscent of Spanish missions. It was finished by the fall 2011.
