Happy Valen-times This Tuesday!

Minnesota Music Cafe! This coming Tuesday is Valentines Day (that’s February 14), and it also happens to be The Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra’s regular night at the Minnesota Music Café.

Sure, you might have something special planned for the evening. Remember, though, it could be all the more special if you stop by at 7pm to hear us play some original big-band music! We’ll play two sets, winding up at 9, and by the time we’re done, the night’s still young! See you there!

If you’re on the Facebook Machine, our special event is here.

Hear the NCJO in 2017!

UPDATE 1/10/17 5:53 PM: We’re sorry to say that, because of treacherous weather and road conditions, tonight’s performance has been cancelled. See you next month!

Happy 2017, everyone! You can hear the Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra for the first time this year coming up on January 10. The first of our famous two sets will begin at 7pm. See everyone there!
