Have some fun with our trio at this lovely, and very popular, little wine bar in Solon. During warm weather months, when we can set up on the patio, we have room to expand to our quartet by adding our drummer. Check the Calendar Page for dates and a Google Map. This is a small and intimate wine bar with a vast selection of wines and some great food parings. No reservations are taken but the staff is very accommodating and will seat you as soon as possible.

Located at 16965 Park Circle Drive and nestled in a wooded setting, you are sure to be pleased with the calming atmosphere.

The food is excellent! Check the Calendar Page for dates, times and a Google Map.

DelCiello’s – Ravenna

Join our trio piece group at this quaint restaurant in historic Ravenna for some great food, music and some classic atmosphere. With a name like “DeCiello’s” it is most certainly an Italian restaurant. However, versatility comes from the owners wife who is from Germany. There are both Italian and German offerings on the menu. Whether you order the pasta or the schnitzel, you’re sure to be pleased. Come have some fun with us at this unique restaurant in Ravenna. Check the Calendar Page for a Google Map. NOTE: While DelCiello’s goes through some adjustments our originally scheduled appearances there through December have been put on hold. Look here for when we will return there in 2020.

Speak Of The Devil

Our next two appearances at this “Speakeasy” style restaurant/lounge in downtown Lorain will be September 21 and December 21 with additional  information found on our Calendar Page. Play time is 7:00 – 10:00. We look forward to seeing you there.
