Just a quick reminder...PMQ at KJH on WED!
The Pat Mallinger Quartet is coming to KJ's Hideaway (the old Artists' Quarter space) at 408 St. Peter St. (the Hamm Building) in St. Paul on Wednesday, December 29th at 9:00 pm. Get tickets here.
Born and raised in St. Paul, sax phenom Pat Mallinger has called Chicago home for many years -- returning every year to play a gig or two back in Minnesota during the holiday season. Pat has appeared on stage with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Ramsey Lewis and Stevie Wonder, among others. Most weeks in Chicago, you'll see Pat play a variety of gigs, including co-leading the band Sabertooth, the Green Mill's "resident wee-hours organ quartet."
Appearing with Pat will be Will Kjeer on piano, Jeremy Boettcher on bass, and Kenny Horst on drums.
Note: Proof of Vaccination or a Negative recent (72 hour) COVID test required for all attendees.
And if you're looking for something to do on New Year's Eve (Friday) 12/31, the Black Dog Cafe in Lowertown St. Paul will have a NEW YEAR'S EVE TRIBUTE TO JOHN COLTRANE, featuring Steve Kenny on Trumpet, Dave Brattain on Saxophones, Kavyesh Kaviraj on Piano, Charlie Lincoln on Bass and Kevin Washington on Drums. The music starts at 9:30 pm (and the fun starts as soon as you arrive). Make reservations and find more information over on the Saturday Night at the Black Dog website. (Yes, the Saturday Night website for this Friday's event!)
Whether we see you at KJ's Hideaway on 12/29 or the Black Dog Cafe on 12/31 or not, please have a safe and happy 2022!
