(208) 426-JAZZ 

Club Night 
This schedule is subject to change.

One ticket gets you into all venues!
We are pleased to announce the addition of new venues for your Club Night enjoyment this year. Be sure to check out Pie
- a great place for music and food, and The Reef, Boise’s new Latin Club scheduled to open in February 04’.  Also we will be closing out Club Night in the Bank of America Centre.  Come and enjoy the fun.

Once again Downtown Boise will be filled with fantastic jazz artists.  Trombonist Andy Martin will start things off (LA’s top jazz studio soloist). Many did not hear Andy last year so here is your chance to hear the best. Blues guitarist Anthony Paul will be joined by vocalist Miss Dee to scratch that itch for the blues. The Patrick Lamb Band brings a smooth mix of Funk, R&B and Jazz to bring you their own grooving’ sound. 

The Llew Matthews Trio (12 years as Nancy Wilson’s music director) will be joined by the sultry stylings of Lady Mem’Fis with local great Sandon Mayhew on tenor sax. Guitarist Frank Potenza adds pianist Larry Fuller to his quartet for an outstanding combination of talent. Back by demand are Festival favorites Paul Tillotson, Billy Mitchell with Cherie Buckner-Webb. Another new addition is Boise Straight Ahead, the HP Jazz Big Band more great music from our own community. Be sure to finish the night with Louise Rose in the Bank of America Centre. This former police officer learned her craft under Oscar Peterson, Duke Ellington and Leonard Bernstein.
