Since July of 2009 the GJB has performed monthly in Hamden at Aunt Chilada's, usually on the third Sunday of the month. Our next session will be from 6 until 8 PM on July 15 with Fred Vigorito, Russ Whitman, Art Hovey, Bob Bequillard, Joel Schiavone, Tom Artin, Charlie Freeman on piano, and vocalist Cynthia Fabian. Known since 1993 as the best Mexican restaurant in the greater New Haven area, Aunt C's is located at 3931 Whitney Avenue, just a couple of miles north of Sleeping Giant in Hamden, beside the golf course. Seating is somewhat limited; please call 203-230-4640 to reserve a table, or just come anyway and sit at the bar. Click HERE for Jean Hadley's review of a recent session.
