J-Bob & Lefty (Acoustic Jazz, Swing & Blues)

  • Orange Door Kitchen 251 Arlington St Acton, MA 01720 (map)

J-Bob (guitar & vocals) and Lefty (bass & percussion) team up with stellar trombonist Mark Hamilton (Klezmer Conservatory Band) and super jazz violinist Tomoko Iwamoto (440 Gypsy Jazz). Together they’re a swinging quartet who play a cool repertoire of both popular and obscure jazz, swing, and blues from the Great American Songbook (1920s to 1950s) . . . along with the occasional Tango.

“Fugitive at the Door” is a bi-weekly music series presented by Fugitive Productions and Orange Door Kitchen. Since the winter of 2015, Fugitive has been bringing great dance bands to The Gallery at Villageworks. Now, Fugitive is partnering with Villageworks’ newest venue, Orange Door Kitchen, to present “listening” music — one to a few performers playing jazz, folk, bluegrass, blues, classical, world music, possibly even a cappella. Whatever strikes our fancy — and yours.

“Fugitive at the Door” happens two Wednesdays a month. Orange Door Kitchen serves a few small plates and snacks each evening with a full bar. We think you will fall in love with the room and the amenities and hope that our Wednesday evening events offer a regular mid-week break for you.

Orange Door is a no cash, no tipping venue — all transactions are digital and gratuities are included in the menu price.
