"The spirit of jazz is the spirit of openness." - Herbie Hancock
The Boplicity Jazz Band is thrilled to announce it will be performing at My Place Restaurant and Bar in Newtown, CT on Saturday March 3rd at 9pm.
After a triumphant tour of Southbury, and due to popular demand, Boplicity is returning to its hometown of Newtown Connecticut for an evening of great jazz music. And, as a special thank you to all our friends and fans, the show will be free!
The management of My Place Restaurant and Bar says they’re delighted to have Boplicity back for this return engagement but asks that customers please refrain from dancing on the tables again. “We love to see everyone having fun, and absolutely want to see people dancing, but just to be safe, please do not dance on top of the tables…”
Come early and come often. We’re expecting an overflow crowd so if the parking at My Place/Big Y is full – please park across the street and come on over. We WILL fit everyone in, one way or the other!
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!
