Maybe its just us, but there’s something enchanting about listening to great music on a warm evening with your friends and family; especially when great music comes to historic downtown Ellensburg. This past weekend marked the 20th year Jazz in the Valley brought its “A” game to town. 20 years of great Jazz and great company.
“20 years of great Jazz and great company”
We were lucky enough to host two excellent groups at the store. The Chris Brown Quartet Friday night and Pearl Django with Gail Pettis Saturday. Both groups sounded fabulous and played for a full house of festival attendees watching from our selection of sofas,tables and chairs set for a concert. We enjoy making the conversion from furniture store to jazz club, and always hope that listening in our venue guarantees the most comfortable seats in town.Though this year, we got so full on Saturday night, the stairs doubled as chairs!
We’d like to say a special thank you to Larry Sharpe, the Jazz in the Valley Board, all of the talented musicians and many volunteers who make this event possible each Summer. Its a special thing to watch Ellensburg come to life with music and smiles on every corner!
Who did you enjoy most this weekend? Where did you go to listen?
