Tony Monaco on Hammond B3 Organ – Jazz at the Rumba Cafe

Matthew heard Tony play a couple of months ago in Zagreb at a Jazz Festival and now Tuesday night in Columbus, Ohio, Tony Monaco’s hometown. Started at nine, we stayed ’til midnight and Tony was just getting warmed up ready for another set. Reggie Jackson on drums and Derek Dicenza on guitar.  Reminded me of the time Matthew and Mary and I went to the Village Vanguard and saw Dr. Lonnie Smith on Hammond B3. Matthew loves to listen to the Hammond B3,  It was a fun night with James and Steve.

    • On the way to the Cafe to hear Jazz, James pointed out an old fashioned theater where he said you were still allowed to bring in your own beer.
      I had never heard of taking beer to the movies! James, what was the name of the theater?
