A good night out and great music

     There is a little cafe in Audubon, New Jersey and this friendly place has been hosting some great music. The Quarter Note Cafe, located at 57 E. Kings Highway and next to the brand new Conservatory of Musical Arts is making a name for itself with the excellent performers featured most Friday nights, starting at 7 p.m.

     This past Friday, my ghost hunter friends and I had the opportunity to hear the Erik Marley Jazz Trio play, and what a delightful night we had. The trio consisted of Teo Ortiz on sax, Erik Marley on drums, and Victor Caraballo on bass.These young men kept us entertained with their repertoire of old and new songs. They played so well, I felt like I was back at the Preservation Hall in New Orleans. I hope to see them featured again at this cafe.

     Also check out Mike Walton, a great singer and songwriter, who performs at the Quarter Note Cafe and  check out the Facebook page for The Conservatory of Musical Arts in Audubon. On top of the great entertainment and food, the staff is friendly and welcoming.

My next blog will be an interview with the amazing writer Fran Metzman on her collection of stories in The Hungry Heart
