Every year in January the stunning Boiler Grand Hall hosts an annual fundraiser called Jazz in January. This year, you can catch two fundraising events by well-known Jazz musicians — Dave Stryker Quartet and the Mitch Towne Quartet.
January 24th at 8PM, hear the Dave Stryker Quartet while supporting the benefit. For the tenth time, Stryker was voted into the Downbeat Critics and Readers Poll in 2017 and is a local favorite. Dave Stryker is a jazz guitarist who started his early days of playing Jazz in Omaha.
On January 29th, the Boiler Grand Hall will be featuring the Mitch Towne Quartet for their fundraiser. Mitch Towne has a Grammy nomination under his belt and is an excellent Jazz keyboardist. He has worked with a Grammy-winning producer and well-respected fellow Jazz musicians, like the previously mentioned Dave Stryker. The Mitch Towne Quartet’s show also starts at 8 PM.
In addition to the jazz, the beautiful building is another excellent reason to attend the event. The Grand Manse building at 129 North 10th Street in downtown Lincoln is the home of the Boiler Grand Hall. Make sure as you’re making your way through the Grand Hall to take note of the rich architecture, detailed crown molding and the 24-foot oak wood walls. These events are supported by Boiler Brewing Company, Jazz in June, Jazz time Smooth Radio, Downtown Lincoln, and The Eagle Group. As they say at Boiler Grand Hall, “Jazz has a new home in Lincoln.”
