Our Lunar Octet Plays the Dirty Dog

The Lunar Octet, our latin/jazz group now in its 40th year, played a four night engagement earlier this year at one of Detroit's premier jazz clubs, the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe. All-original music, sold-out shows, a standing ovation or two--it was a good week.

The photo was taken through the window at the club's entrance, which has musical and canine figures etched in.

Our Lunar Octet to Perform in the Detroit Area This Month

Some great food and music at the Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe this coming week, just north of Detroit. Wednesday through Saturday, Feb. 8-11, we converge from California, Florida, Ohio, and NJ to play our original latin/jazz music, which one newly minted fan in England last year called "joy jazz." The concerts are dedicated to the memory of the prominent and indefatigable jazz writer Michael G. Nastos. Tell your friends in the Detroit/Ann Arbor area to come on out. Info below.
