Welcome to the 14th annual Fisch Haus Tuesday Night Jazz Series!
Each evening starts at 8PM, with doors at 7:30, and admission is free, but we suggest a donation of at least $5. All donations go directly to the bands, so we encourage you to be generous if you had a great time. The shows are open to all ages, and we invite our audience to bring their own refreshments, but ask that alcohol not be served to minors. In a special, jazz series-only deal, we're offering a free beer with every purchase of a Fisch Haus Art Show Survival kit or pint glass. Dee Starkey, our illustrious and long-serving M.C., will be again offering a short poetry reading before each evening, of poetry specifically chosen for the event.
This year's series is very generously sponsored by The Bonavia Family Foundation, Jo Stevenson, and Dee and Linda Starkey. Thank you!
