  • December 17th marks Fitzgerald's 36th anniversary. Come celebrate with us at this annual holiday extravaganza, one of their favorite shows of the holiday season.

    Brave Combo returns for its annual holiday party! Describing Brave Combo’s music requires a pretty extensive vocabulary – at least when it comes to musical styles.  For the past three decades the Denton, Texas, based quintet has perfected a world music mix that includes salsa, meringue, rock, cumbia, conjunto, polka, zydeco, classical, cha cha, the blues and more. They are America’s premier dance band and a rollicking, rocking, rhythmic global journey — offering what one critic recently wrote, “Even if you come for the party, you'll leave with something of a musical education

     They were the band Talking Head’s David Byrne chose for his wedding reception. From festivals and fairs of all varieties across the globe, rock clubs big and small, colleges, roadhouses, dances, cultural centers (including the annual Midsummer Night’s Swing at Lincoln Center in New York City) Brave Combo has charmed countless listeners and won avid devotees. The band has won two Grammy Awards and been nominated for their work 7 times.

    Bill Fitzgerald clears out the seating for this show except for a tiny amount of seats along the wall.  We will meet in the standing area of the southeast corner of the room, opposite from where you enter. Dress is casual to festive. Between sets, there are lots of seats in the heated area under the tent, where there also is a coat check.

    There is street parking within a couple of blocks of the establishment.

    COST - $20

    If you come early, tickets may be available, but the show can sell out.  If you want to guarantee a ticket, you might consider buying a ticket ahead of time -

    Come on out for a rocking good time!  This is a multi-meetup event.
