THE ELEPHANT ROOM's 25TH ANNIVERSARY
Fable's Michael Mordecai began working with JP Vermaelen, owner of the Elephant Room, in January of 1991 right after JP opened the doors. He moved his jazz jam there and focused on giving local jazz musicians a place to play 7 nights a week. It has been one of the best working relationships there can be and we are blessed to be a part of what has become home to Austin's jazz community.
This magical place is what it is because of JP, his staff, Rebecca, Will and Jef and all the waitresses and characters that have worked there over the years. It is what it is because of all the musicians that have come down and participated, shared they music and their lives. It is magical because of all the devoted fans and customers, patrons that have supported the music and made this little spot downstairs their go-to hang - you know who you are!
We could talk about lots of famous folks that have come in for a drink or to play or to hang but that's not what it's about. Those memories are just ones that, well . . . you just had to be there.
The line up for this week includes some great acts new and old - all of them terrific!
Come join us for the celebration of family, friendship and Austin's Best Jazz! Click the Pic to see the ELEPHANT ROOM CALENDAR. See you there!
