Boca Raton

I’m heading to Boca Raton for a quick trip this weekend to visit my family. They want me to take them to some music. I see Dumpstaphunk is at The Culture Room, but I doubt they mean THAT late. I have no desire to see Karl Densen, just not my thing. His trio is opening. I have had this conversation with many people, and have come to the conclusions: he’s often great late night, he knows how to bring it out of Tiny Universe, I really like Tiny Universe. I did enjoy when he did a duo with Johnny Vidocovich 2 jazzfests ago at d.b.a., but that fizzled once Skerik showed up for a song and blew him away.

Anyway, it looks like there are some places to go for music in Boca itself. I have been wanting to check out Gigi’s for some time now, so that is probably going to be it. There’s also The Funky Buddha Lounge, which looks like it probably has good tea as well. Yeah! Music and tea are 2 of my favorite things! My sister would like it because she can smoke. The 3rd possibility for Fri is Iko Iko at The Backroom Blues Bar.

This is no NYC, but better than nothing at all. I am sorry I’m unable to check out Takeover BAM on Sat. I’d also likely be at Jazz Standard, The Stone, and Jazz Gallery this weekend if I were here.

If you'd like to go to the Iko-Iko show, drop me a note via email. It will be quite an evening, I believe.

Cheers,
