Hello Everyone,

Steve's Live Music invites 35UP! group to our Sunday "Jazz Brunch" featuring Rita Graham and Tom Woods (see below for information about Rita).

This event is a sure sellout, but we are making some tickets available to our 35UP! group first, as they have been part of the scene here at Steve's since it opened.

We cannot guarantee entry to this event, if you have not bought your ticket in advance. Tickets are $10/person plus a small fee. If you pay at the door, we cannot guarantee a seat.
