Jazz Fest Concert Series and Fish Fry
"Located in a restored 1800's Victorian Brownstone building in a Historical Landmark area of Bedford Stuyvesant. This concert series is hosted in a salon style acoustic sound room. The feel of being in your own home with your shoes off with an authentic jazz vibe. Imagine retreating back to a different time and spend the evening in an intimate setting. You'll experience the enjoyment of a live Jazz Concert a Southern Fish Fry Buffet and lastly an open mic to delight your palette. An upright grand piano such as the ones once used to create some of today's classic jazz tunes on Pan Alley Row grouped alongside other acoustic style instruments make up what is called THE ROOM.During the 1930's perhaps even earlier one didn't have to go to Manhattan for the jazz scene Brooklyn had one of it's own. Bedford Stuyvesant had the largest Jazz neighborhood in Brooklyn. It held many venues that housed jazz greats like Thelonius Monk Randy Weston Miles Davis

West Indian Day Parade Tips (1)

West Indian Day Parade

Jump Up! It's a BIG party... and TONS of fun! Every Labor Day, just remember: it's the West Indian Day parade and lots of Floats, music and great food are served up for you the Visitor! I'm upset with VT not having a Bedford Stuyvesant Section of Brooklyn, by the way. Oh well. Note this photo: it's a FLOAT by FRITO-LAY. How cool is that?!
