Wow, what a lineup!  Thanks Steve!
Didn't Mose Allison write the song "Your Brain is On Vacation, but Your Mouth is Working Overtime"?
or words to that effect?

Hi Barb & List mates:

I know about the following:

Mose Allison is at the Artist's Quarter on Friday  through Sunday 8:30 PM & 10:30 PM
408 St Peter Street, St Paul 651-292-1359   $20  (Blues/Boogie Woogie etc)

Dakota Jazz Club - 1010 Nicollet Mall 55403 Minneapolis  -  612-332-1010 Shows start at 7 PM & 9:30 PM.  Not sure who's there. May be modern jazz.

Rossi's Blue Star Room - 80 S. Ninth Street, Minneapolis  612-312-2880
Said to be like a Chicago Speakeasy, but I don't know who is there.

Bar Lurcat, 1624 Harmon Pl, Minneapolis - music after 9 (sometimes) 612-486-5500

Cafe Luxx - 1101 Lasalle Ave, Minneapolis - 612-332-6800 American Songbook Combos

Times Bar & Grill - 201 E. Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis 612-617-8098 Jazz Brunch on Sundays from 10 AM. (also nights, but not sure what genre)

In St Paul also try

O'Gara's 175 W 7th St  651-644-3333  A YOUNG crowd goes here and the music may by rock as well as jazz so check first. <grin>

Too bad the "Dixieland" venue went bankrupt. However, you can't go wrong with Mose Allison. He is a wonderful pianist and singer. Not Dixieland but surely OKOM. And as a vocalist yourself, you would probably LOVE him.

Hi Steve, I just googled Chang O'Hara's and they just filed for bankruptcy last Friday! I called the church and the Barbary Coast Dixieland Band is playing on Oct. 5th, so I guess that's where we will go. Do you know of any other jazz/blues venues like Chang O'Hara's in St. Paul's?
