Jazz Music Cafe with Sambeleza

The music starts 8 PM but come at 7:30 for coffee or tea. There is
a cover charge of $5.


About Sambeleza

Sambeleza performs a wide variety of Brazilian songs - both old and new - with a jazz twist. Brasil (spelled with 's' in Portuguese) is well known for its rich heritage - a blend of indigenous, African and European cultures - from which the music has risen with fascinating rhythms, soaring melodies and colorful harmonies.

The musicians of Sambeleza are outstanding U. S. and Brazilian interpreters of the great songs of the bossa nova and samba traditions, as well as outstanding jazz artists in their own right. Sambeleza derives its name from two words: samba,
the national dance of Brasil, and beleza, Portuguese for 'beauty'.

 

About Best Video & Coffee Bar

Best Video is not just a place where you can pick up a great film. It’s a place that offers live music and spoken word events, Sunday kids matinees, and a coffee & wine bar where you can hang out. It is also a place that hires local people, patronizes local vendors and suppliers, and keeps its revenues and salaries in the local economy.

In a time when community small business institutions are being bulldozed by soulless corporate chains and distant online behemoths we believe there is still a place for a local-rooted business with heart and soul that thrives on catering to your needs on a face-to-face, personal basis.

    I'm so sorry that I missed this gathering. Life got in the way. I know I'll be seeing Sambeleza soon, as they have several gigs in this area over the next month or so. Hope those who attended enjoyed the music.

    I am not sure I will be able to make it to the event. I will take my chances and come if I can and if there is no seat I will check out a movie and leave. Have fun everyone.

    Arriving early by 7:30 is your best chance to get a seat if it's crowded. This band tends to draw a big crowd but the weather may be kind of wet. It looks like mostly rain with high winds.

    See you tomorrow night. If you have to update your RSVP, please do so today. Thanks so much. We have five people on the waiting list.

    Hello, I just want to remind everyone on the Jazz Cafe with Sambeleeza meetup to check your calendar. The event is this Wednesday (two days away) so please be sure you are definitely planning to attend.

    I'll be calling the coffee bar tomorrow to reserve seats for our group. To get an accurate count, I need you to update your RSVP if your plans have changed.

    Looking forward to see this great group for a fun, jazzy evening!

    These are "A" list jazz players who deserve our support. I'm looking forward to seeing them perform in such an intimate venue. Thanks Christine for the opportunity! -Mike

    Since seat reservations are required, please be sure you are planning to attend. : ) I wouldn't want to reserve seats and then have people not show up. This makes our group look bad.

    March 1, 2013

  • christine

    I'm going to increase the number of attendees so that people on the wait list can join. I will also close the RSVP's on Tues March 5 so I can call the venue with the number of seats to reserve.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
