Bungalow Jazz presents George Delancy Quintet, a House Concert

Next Concert: George Delancey Quintet, Friday March 12th

Join Becky Ogden and a cozy crowd for BUNGALOW JAZZ, an occasional series of combo jazz performances in the intimacy and warmth of Becky’s unique East Columbus home.

Becky’s big old 1910 bungalow sits on an acre ravine lot on East Fifth Avenue (it’s a little hard to find: See the directions!) Deeply connected to Columbus’s jazz community, Becky has long opened her house for friendly musical gatherings. Since closing her Columbus Music Hall, she still sees the need for venues where musicians and their audiences can mingles. Hence, Bungalow Jazz, the casual “house concert” venue.

The fabulous seven-foot Mason Hamlin piano sits in the living room, waiting for artists like Mark Flugge to bring out its warm and beautiful sound. After a post-jazz festival session, Wes “Warmdaddy” Anderson said, “I LOVE this room!”

The combined first-floor space seats about fifty people with overflow in the dining room (home to the English pub bar familiar to denizens of the Firehouse).

Every event is BYOB, with free snacks, desserts, soft drinks and coffee furnished by your hostess. BYO goodies too, if you want to contribute to the munchies.

And by all means, bring your own children: The atmosphere is family-style and welcoming.
