The address is 3723 Charlotte Ave. Use 37th or 38th to go BEHIND the building and park ANYWHERE (including the garage door openings! Look for the black staircase leading to a pink door. Bring your dance shoes in; it’s a little muddy at the entrance, so let’s keep the dance floor clean and happy by leaving those muddy ones at the door 🙂

The Band

The Willies are Nashville based roots artists conjuring the spirit of that time before bordello jazz & dirty fingernail blues were the background music for baristas and doggy bakeries. But as veterans of the American underground, the Willies aren’t interested in reenacting the rough and tumble legacy of 20’s jazz & blues… they embody that energy. And these genres are only starting points… vintage bottles to contain several lifetimes of experience in the jazz, blues, rockabilly and punk underworld.
