They go on 10P and jam out till 1A and there is never a cover. Take it from the locals, it's a must see show! Dav

Springing from the platonic love affair between two bands and their shared (and slightly lurid) love affair with traditional Jazz, the California Feetwarmers have already co-opted several radical & itinerant musicians from similar groups across the nation and are fast becoming a corporation to be reckoned with.
