Coffee, Cheesecake and Squeaky Chair Jazz

My wife and I were trying to figure out something to do with our evening last night, and we settled on going to Starry Nights coffee house to watch the Squeaky Chair Band and enjoy some dessert.  What a great capper for a great day!

I really dig Starry Nights in the first place, having become a really great replacement for the old Moonbeans and even something a little better.  The Squeaky Chair Band reminds me of something you’re likely to hear on Prairie Home Companion, with a smooth jazz hollow body guitar backing up violin and upright base supporting the whole thing.  The lead singer’s voice was one of those classic reedy voices as he strolled through classics like All of Me and Summertime.

I had a nice latte and Sarah and I split a baklava cheesecake which was just ho-lee-shit good.

And that’s about all I have to say.
