Exciting News ... The formerly Something's Brewing group (that's Jim and Mary, Bob, Bob, Rick, Jack and others) has found a new home at The Oak Park Arms retirement community. The musicians play in the former hotel ballroom, which is an acoustically compatible space. Plus ... the OPA provides coffee and pastries for the players! (Acoustics be darned ... gimme a danish!) Many thanks to Bob Lopardo for stewarding the place and process.
While the gig is solely for residents and their guests, the audience is warmly engaged and appreciative of the music. The Oak Park Arms is on the corner of Washington Boulevard and Oak Park Avenue, and the pickin' starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends, well, whenever the group gets tired. Musicians associated with the OP Farmer's Market band are welcome to join the circle.
