John Zappa on trumpet, Brad Myers on guitar, Aaron Jacobs on bass, and Jason Smart on drums.

An artful combination of Contemporary jazz with the rhythms of afrobeat and world-beat music, Now Hear This is electric, funky, and organic. The group is comprised of musicians with extensive professional experience, playing, the music of various styles including jazz greats Ignacio Berroa, Benny Golson, Tim Hagens, Fareed Haque, Charlie Hunter, Jeff Hamilton, Warren Vache, Don Braden, and local popular groups including Ray’s Music Exchange, The Blue Wisp Big Band, and Brasilia. The result is a well-balanced blend of the jazz tradition with the experimental elements requisite to find an original approach. The use of rhythms not typically associated with jazz or American dance provides their music with an exotic flavor while maintaining accessibility to audiences through its groovabilty.


Due to COVID 19 social distancing restrictions we will be selling all shows by the table and not per person. A chart is provided below to help you choose your seat package since selling by the table isn't a feature of the reserved seating chart of Eventbrite.

For parties greater than 4 we may be able to place an extra table in a row or put you together in the standing area in the back, but you must call ahead to see if we have the availability for any given show to make it work.

$10 drink minimum charged per person in party if the total for beverages purchased by the party does not meet the minimum.

Important Notice #1: If you do not check-in by 15 minutes into the start of the set, we reserve the right to resale your seats with no refund to you.

Important Notice #2: All persons entering the cafe must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth.

Tickets: $5 - $20
