Folks continue to pack the beautiful Clintonville Woman's Club, 3951 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio every Monday evening to hear the Famous Jazz Orchestra playing their hearts out for all who care to listen.  Must be they found the "best kept secret in Ohio!"  Under the direction of the spunky Vaughn Wiester, the band has been getting together every Monday night (except when Columbus gets horrible weather, or  competition from a Buckeye football game) for going over 20 years.  The FJO is a twenty-two piece orchestra made up of volunteer professional musicians who simply love getting  together to "jam and blow the good ones." 

Tonight, MondaySept 4th (7:30 pm) - We will not be having a Guest Performer - instead, the Band will be digging deep in their folders to find some good ol' Big Band tunes to dig into...  Always a fun night watching them "sight readin, baby!"

Up on Deck

Next Monday Night, Sept 11th - (7:30 pm) - Our Guest Performer will be local vocalist icon, Kelly McLennan.
