Past Gigs & Performance Dates.

Thursday, September 19th at 8:00 pm at The Knife Room is an expanded space of Café Nordo/ Pioneer Square 103 South Main Street: Doors open at 7:30 PM

This is the second time I have had the honor of playing this intimate and alluring room. It feels like an authentic jazz club and truly sets a tone to be a listening room. When you have that type of atmosphere you will a part of an experience where the performer and audience become one.  Looking forward to having you all meet some new taborjazz family members.
