A Great Columbus Tradition!
The jam is a tradition that started at the onset and invention of jazz and has been an integral part of it ever since. Jazz purists will tell you that the jam never died and continues always. We believe that is the case and are proud to invite all to jam at Jazz & Eggz, a traditional Saturday brunch and live jazz jam, that flourished for several years in the 90's and earlier parts of this century, and keeps on going!

Regulars, miss the
easy, comfortable, friendly and fun filled Saturday jazz brunch tradition. They remember many "Must-hear-this" fine tunes, and "Must-be-heard" solos performed at the the old Marble Gang bar on Mt. Vernon avenue. The scene had a marvelous, magical feeling to it. Everyone loved it!

Unfortunately, it became unavailable and Jazz and Eggs looked for a new home. There have been several attempts at reviving the jam since then. Most were well attended _our last jam at the downtown Hyatt brought over 300 people, not including musicians! They weren't ready for such a crowd. Yet, we somehow we never again found a permanent home that worked as well as that old bar.

Well… maybe our woes are over! Jazz and Eggs has been booked at one of the newest and coolest venues to have recently opened in Columbus. BOMA is an elegant, worldly, sophisticated nightclub/restaurant/ art venue in an award winning architectural renovation of the Old familiar, grand church.

Cover charge: $10 at the door
Full bar and gourmet breakfast; available at additional cost.
Valet Parking: $5
Self Parking: $3 in lot. Meters available on nearby streets.
(BOMA is is within walking distance of Downtown and Near East neighborhoods)

The house band is led by Gene Walker, Listen for the Jazz artistic director, and features Linda and Kerry Dactyl, Tom Carroll, and more to be announced.

Join the Jam! Bring your axe and register at the door. We''ll let Gene know you're in the house. If he calls you up, breakfast is on us! (Listen For The Jazz)
