Spring 2018 Season Now Completed

Friday Night Live finished off its Spring 2018 season with a Bang. First of all there was Matt Grinke’s Happiest Big Band On Earth.  The 17 piece Jazz Big Band play to a sold out crowd and created a room full of fans. It was the premiere performance of the Band – guaranteed we will […]
