Friday, January 6th, 8-10pm: GENNA AND JESSE CONCERT. Dinner served 6:30-9pm with Steamed Pork Buns and assorted fillings (vegetarian, included), plus salads and soups. Genna & Jesse are defined by a unique alchemy born of the quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmonies and ardent storytelling which infuse their songwriting and vibrant performances. With whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, blue-eyed soul, jazz, blues, torch song, and “retro soul pop," they shrug off music industry conventions in their genre-defying dedication to being current and free. Drawing inspiration from their nomadic lifestyle, Genna & Jesse might best be described as modern troubadours, generously offering listeners glimpses of their always-moving world with something fresh, true and independent. Genna & Jesse are currently touring internationally to promote their newest release, "Asphalt Rhapsody.”Listen here and we'll see you there. Suggested donation $15
