Been to this a couple times now and always dug it. Lotta great players, guys (and girls!) come out of the woodwork, show up with an instrument, ready to get on stage and blow. Quality of musicianship super high. Some blazing sax players, fierce. And some really talented guitarists. Different bass players each time, again, top notch. And keys were awesome too, some killer solos. Holmberg holding it down throughout, but also will give up the drums to other folks. Love hearing jazz in a hockey bar. $2 PBRs and no cover, ya can’t beat it. Sound is good too.
Seems like Max Holmberg, the host and drummer, is doing a lot around town, bring jazz to new places, like Pies & Pints, Havana, etc. Says on his website’s bio that he’s a local and just graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston.
