C ans of paint and crumpled dropcloths are scattered everywhere. Bare windows and half-empty walls stare at a couple of dusty cabaret tables and a few wooden chairs.

I cannot state strongly enough how excited I am to see the Jazz Showcase reopen its doors. The Jazz community has missed the club as well as Joe, Wayne and Chuck! Looking forward to Thursday night guys, welcome back!

Keepin'Jazz alive for oh these so many years! Can't wait to see the whole gang, Joe, Wayne & Chuck -- and all the fellow attendees, some we know by name, others only by sight, brothers & sisters in sound, all.(And to Les and others whose time ran out before the reopening- we know you are with us in spirit).

I am an amputee and want to know if this place is
handicapped accessable ? I mean NO steps. I have a
motorized wheelchair or scooter and neither does steps.
I wii appreciate your answer and hope to see you
Thursday with Jr. Mance if possible.....Thanks Norma

Wow, I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. I'm really excited for this, and as a working musician in Chicago, I'm really excited about the prospects of those Tuesday and Wednesday gigs and post-set jam sessions. Thanks for pushing through, Joe and Wayne.

Thanks for keeping it going, fellas! Chicago wouldn't be the same city without you.

I loved that someone remembered Les. It's the fans, the real jazz lovers, that make the evening's musical offerings that much better! A living history of jazz is present every night in those seats. I know that Les, Yvette, and others who left too soon will be with us every night we're there.

Thank you Joe and Wayne - boy, did we miss you!!!
