The beloved Nighttown restaurant and music club in Cleveland Heights will return in 2022, according to new owner Gregg Levy.

Red the Steakhouse managing partner Levy said Nighttown’s identity and favorite menu items will remain.

“It will be the Dublin lawyer you know, wait and love. It will be the big bar with the great variety of beers on tap. It will be Nighttown,” said Levy.

Levy also said he’s in talks with longtime Nighttown music promoter Jim Wadsworth to bring jazz back to the Cedar Hill Hall.

“It’s not Nightown without music,” he said.

Levy and his team have been working on the sale for several months meeting with former owner Brendan Ring, who closed the restaurant last year.

“The more we watched it, the more we delved into it, the more we fell in love with what was there and its potential,” he said.

While Levy plans to keep the Nighttown identity, he looks to overhaul his kitchen.

“We destroy every piece of kitchen equipment there and start over. We destroy the coolers and freezers and build a new structure there,” he said.

And for those looking for a place to eat on Sundays, Levy said Nighttown plans to cover that as well.

“We can’t wait to bring brunch back to the Heights area. You know, from our good friends, Doug Katz and Fire [Food and Drink] came out, I think the Heights really missed their fun brunch. And we plan to have an amazing brunch there, ”he said.

Canadian jazz ensemble BadBadNotGood announced earlier this summer that they will be returning shortly with Talk Memory, their first new album in five years. Following the exciting news, the trio now share another glimpse of the effort with “Bedside April”.

Much like the rest of their catalog, BadBadNotGood’s “Bedside April” is a whirlwind instrumental number. It combines the jazz background of the trio with dizzying chords to create a full-fledged psychedelic fever dream.

In a statement alongside the “Bedside April” video, director Camille Summers-Valli shared her experience working with horses:

“There was a really special energy around this video. The group wanted to do something with the horses and the riders. This is where it started. Strangely enough, I am petrified by horses. But it was like a good way to overcome my fears. Subconsciously, through a process of reading, researching references, and discussing with my team, I began to piece together the puzzle of what this video could be. We shot this in Georgia; where the cast was amazing. The horse was wonderful too. So strong and majestic, we just wanted to do justice to this beautiful creature. The magic lined up, so many great and hardworking people made this video happen. “

THE GUINNESS CORK Jazz Festival returns this year after being canceled due to Covid-19 restrictions last year.

The festival will take place on the bank holiday weekend from October 22 to 25.

The announcement comes after restrictions were relaxed somewhat on the events and entertainment industry earlier this week.

As of Monday, outdoor events and mass gatherings can take place with capacity limits of 75% where customers are all immunized (fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19 in the past six months), or accompanied minors (under 18).

When customers have mixed immunity status, the capacity limit is 50%, subject to protective measures including social distancing between groups and face masks.

Indoor events and mass gatherings are now allowed with 60% capacity limits where clients are all immunized (fully vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19 in the previous six months) or are accompanied minors (less age 18).

Speaking on this year’s Cork Jazz Festival, Rory Sheridan, Head of Partnerships with Diageo Ireland said: “This will be the first major festival in Ireland since the pandemic to take place, which is a milestone not only for musicians and the event industry which has been one of the hardest hit industries, but also for festival goers who have been waiting for good news.

Cork Mayor Councilor Colm Kelleher said the city was “absolutely delighted to host the festival again”.

“The hugely significant economic impact and the dynamism and energy it brings to Cork City and its surroundings are unprecedented. There is nothing else like it. This is the big news we all wanted to hear, ”he said.

Despite the easing of restrictions earlier this week, this year’s electric picnic was canceled earlier this month after Laois County Council refused to grant a license for the event in early August.

Oktoberfest is back in Beaver Creek this weekend and it kicks off what I call “dirndl and lederhosen season” because it gives those who have these clothes in their closet a chance to get dressed.

Beaver Creek has hosted the annual Labor Day weekend oom-pah event for over two decades and has perfected the recipe for fun. Beer, pretzels, music and yodeling here and there make it a must-see for the whole family. A Kids Zone filled with activities, arts and crafts will be set up near the ski lift ticket office. Competitions like stein lifting, brat meal and best dressed take place throughout the weekend, so match your skills with the contest. For more information, visit beavercreek.com/events.

End of summer in Avon

End the summer at Summer’s End in Avon, which will not only host concerts, including a performance by Los Lobos, but also standup paddleboard races like the multi-person SUP Squatch race on Lake Nottingham.

Avon ends the summer on a high note! The inaugural late summer celebration at Harry A. Nottingham Park will feature recreational water sports and stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) competitions, a free outdoor movie, an arts festival and live music, including a concert with Los Lobos. And, drum roll please… the cardboard regatta returns to Nottingham Lake.

Lakeside Cinema has been showing movies on the big screen outdoors all summer, but will show the latest film, Selena, on Friday. The Avon Art Festival opens on Saturday morning and will last all weekend. Stroll through the art before heading out on the water in a pedal boat, play a game of beach volleyball or cool off with a dip in the lake.

On Sundays, SUP races start with all kinds of categories for adults and children. Don’t miss the SUP Squatch event, where eight paddlers ride a large paddle board at top speeds to earn bragging rights.

Nottingham Lake was the place to go on Sunday night. Each week a different group played to help relax with a great evening of live music at SunsetLIVE! This week there will be a music double header with two bands speaking on stage at the Avon Performance Pavilion.

Speaking of music, Summer’s End will feature a free performance by legendary group Los Lobos. The East-LA-bred group has been rocking audiences for nearly five decades and will perform a mix of their past hits and songs from their latest album. Expect to hear a variety of genres such as rock and roll, R&B, surf music, mariachi, punk rock, and country. For more information, visit avon.org.

Jazz evening in Vail

The 27th Vail Jazz Party celebrates the end of summer and concludes the Vail Jazz Festival concert series by bringing together the best names in jazz in Vail. Jazz music will be heard virtually morning, noon and night at the Jazz Tent in Vail Square in Lionshead and at the Vail Mountain Marriott, also in Lionshead. Highlights include Wycliffe Gordon’s Nu Funk Machine dance party, Niki Haris’ Gospel prayer meet and Late Night Jam sessions.

In addition to the pros who come to town, the Vail Jazz Foundation has an educational component. Vail Jazz Workshop brings together a dozen of the best young talents from North America and they receive scholarships for an intensive 10 day program. Students have a unique opportunity to learn and perform alongside some of the best names in jazz music.

Live music at The Amp and Vilar

This next choice begs the question: inside or outside? We have two wonderful musical numbers performed in two spectacular venues, one indoors and one outdoors. The Vilar Performing Arts Center will host double headliners Sierra Ferrell and Jackson Emmer while the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater will host guitar duo, Rodrigo y Gabriela. Both shows will take place at 7:30 p.m.

Jackson Emmer is based on the road in Carbondale, CO and Sierra Farrell comes from his van, literally. Well, not so much, she settled in Nashville, TN after wandering around New Orleans and Seattle.

Jackson Emmer is a Colorado-based singer, songwriter, and producer. He began his singing career in his early twenties, but the dry Colorado air and long stays in bars around Aspen took their toll on his vocal cords at the age of 28. Emmer needed to rest his voice and be patient. In due course, Emmer’s voice returned and a new sound emerged. His work has been featured in Rolling Stone, Billboard, American Songwriter, the Cannes Film Festival and over 200 radio stations around the world.

“Sierra Ferrell’s songs come with a wink and a smile, channeling the romance, humor and heartbreak of 1940s country and jazz songs,” said Owen Hutchinson, executive director of Vilar Performing Arts Center, in a press release.

Ferrell has sang most of her life, performing Shania Twain songs at the age of 7 in a bar in West Virginia. She signed with Rounder Records in 2019 and moved to Nashville. Listen to a variety of genres Ferrell mastered such as jazz, country, cowboy music, and a hint of the blues.

The concert starts at 7:30 pm Tickets are $ 25 and are available at vilarpac.org/jackson-emmer-and-sierra-ferrell.

Grammy Award-winning Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero will rock audiences at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater also Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The acoustic duo, who simply wear their first names, grew up listening to their parents’ music, which included flamenco guitar, jazz, and rock music. The duo also had a fondness for heavy metal, citing Metallica, Slayer and Megadeath as influences.

After seeing little future for their type of music in Mexico City, the couple moved to Dublin, Ireland, and developed a following there. From their beginnings in the seaside resorts of Mexico to the headliners of major venues around the world, don’t miss this opportunity to see Rodrigo y Gabriela in an intimate setting like The Amp.

The opening for Rodrigo y Gabriela is David Keenan, who grew up in Ireland and escaped as a teenager. After performing on the streets of Liverpool, he was discovered in a video recording performing an original song in the backseat of a taxi. Now he’s ready to take on the United States with this tour.

The legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band celebrates 60 years of New Orleans music on Friday, September 3 at the Ridgefield Playhouse from 7:30 p.m. Buy your tickets here.

Led by Ben Jaffe on bass and tuba, the group lives and breathes New Orleans history. While the standards and traditional New Orleans jazz repertoire remain at the heart of his preoccupations, he has transformed himself into a dynamic ambassador of the city, exploring original compositions and Afro-Cuban rhythms, while collaborating with artists beyond the spectrum of jazz.

From sharing festival stages with greats like Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello, the Grateful Dead, My Morning Jacket, Arcade Fire and the Black Keys to an appearance on Foo Fighters Sonic Highway’s eighth studio album – PHJB is redefining the music of the New Orleans.

During the show, ticket holders can participate in a special silent auction to raise money for the Kitty Rosa Preservation Fund. Kitty, who died in 2014 at the age of 92, was passionate about the arts and was instrumental in launching the Ridgefield Playhouse as well as preserving the look and feel of the town of Ridgefield. She was founder of the Keeler Tavern Museum and chair of the Historic District Commission. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band was one of his favorite bands.

Visit GALLO for pre-show dinner and enjoy a complimentary glass of house wine with your entry when you present your tickets!

EventVIP Party Pass available! Includes priority parking and free house wine and beer from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.! Available for $ 50 by calling the ticket office 203.438.5795!
