Thursday, 12/31 – Civilized Celebration
December 31, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
We will once again have our Civilized Celebration of the New Year (and won’t 2021 be welcome!).We will be open from 5:00 – 9:30 for dinner and music (from 6 – 9), so you can be home to see the ball drop! Be entertained by The Rick Whitehead Trio consisting of Rick Whitehead, John Previti, and Barry Hart. Each of these three musicians has had an amazing career. Rick Whitehead was the featured guitar soloist for the USAF band’s Airmen of Note for 22 years. Bassist John Previti is best known for his 18 year stint with the amazing guitar master, Danny Gatton, and has performed with numerous artists of renown including Les Paul, Charlie Byrd, and Paul Simon. Drummer Barry Hart is a Wammie Award winning technical master who has performed with many famous artists, and was the permanent drummer for Danny Gatton’s jazz quintet, Funhouse. They will be likely be joined by Lee, so that means you can expect some rock n roll influence! http://www.rickwhiteheadguitar.com
They will perform in the main dining room, so seats are limited as we have to seat tables farther apart than usual. We encourage tables of 4 so we can use our space well. No tables larger than 6 are allowed at this time. Note that they will be performing pretty much all evening that we’re open, so you can choose your own start and end time! We will be utilizing our upstairs dining room too, so there you can hear the music, but not see, but it allows us to spread out our tables for appropriate social distancing.
