These are teenagers playing blues and jazz with horns, electric guitars, keyboards, etc. I jammed with Tony when he was 15years old. His grandpa is the legendary Joe McFarlane from the Park Place Plaza who played in the Interlochen Jazz Quintet and Big Band. I also saw him at the FIREPLACE INN back in the seventies. He currently is 79 years old.

Open to the public bluegrass jam or solo set 5 miles west of Tom's West Bay on the left across from Solon Rd.
