TAV JAZZ

Downtown after Sundown

On Friday, May 27th grab some dinner, your favorite beach chair and enjoy a live performance by NoName James & Butterball in Spiotta Park, right down the street from us in the center of South Orange.  NoName James and Butterball are very well known around New Jersey.  They combine blues, funk, jazz and rock and NoName James is one of the finest guitarist and vocalist in the area.  They’ve been together for 15 years and have released two CD’s.

If you can’t make Friday’s performance, Saturday you can catch Bossa 5 live in the park. They’re a local favorite and play classic hits and gems from the great Brazilian songbook.  If you enjoy jazz and samba, than you’ll love this group.

You can start your evening off at Bunny’s Sports Bar which is right across the street from the park. Bunny’s has been around for years, and is a great stop for dinner with friends or family. It’s a casual and fun bar atmosphere with multiple sports screens, tables inside and on the sidewalk outside. Look for their happy hour specials, extensive appetizer menu, salads, pizza and Italian entrees. We heard the pasta is very good and they have New York style Pizza! It’s also right by the train so after work you can stop in for a happy hour drink.

Downtown after sundown will also be on Friday and Saturday evenings during June.  For more information on upcoming performances check out the Downtown after sundown schedule.
