The Woody James 16-Piece Big Band plays most Friday afternoons from 1 to 3 PM. Cover is $10. Note, the afternoon performances don’t have a huge number of dancers; these are more for listening. Bring your own partner if you go to an afternoon performance and want to dance!

The venue also has a full bar. Evening dances are 21 and over, but we’ve never been carded.
