Check out the following upcoming October performances below.

Mike LeDonne Trio with Ron Carter and Joe Farnsworth will be performing at Dizzy’s Club this Friday, October 15 and Saturday, October 16 at 7:30pm and 9:30pm both nights. A talented pianist and organist, LeDonne will be joined by Ron Carter on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums, so it’s guaranteed to be a virtuosic evening of swinging jazz.

Christian Sands Trio is headlining next Thursday, October 21 through Saturday, October 23 at 7:30pm and 9:30pm each night.
