Upcoming Shows This Week at Jazz on Main in Mount Kisco

The old-school jazz-themed musical venue and eatery, Jazz on Main in Mount Kisco, NY, has grown into a place for the community to gather and celebrate the arts and music in the two short years since opening.

They have been able to accomplish this through their frequent jam sessions, open mics, Sunday brunches, and most importantly, main gigs with professional musicians and bands, all partnered with delicious Mediterranean food. Shows run year-round, but a few upcoming shows this month deserve special attention.

The charming Westchester town of Mount Kisco is only 43 miles north of New York City, but anyone who spends time there knows there are not many reasons to leave. The walkable downtown is full of boutiques, bistros, and a movie theater, making it the perfect place to spend a casual day shopping and sightseeing.

Jazz on Main opened its doors in the heart of Mount Kisco in 2022 with a mission to provide diverse live performances, an incomparable sound and lighting system, and a sumptuous Mediterranean menu. Heavily inspired by the golden age of jazz, Jazz on Main upholds the classic feel of a classic 20th-century jazz bar.

All of this is paired with a diverse menu of Mediterranean food, ranging from small bites to three-course dinners.

With multiple shows every week, a lot of artists come and go to Jazz on Main that deserve to be recognized. Five events are scheduled just in the last week of June. Here are a couple of them:

Martin Reuter Group – June 27, 7:00 PM

NYC based composer/drummer North Sea artist Martin leads his 4-piece band with modern sounds, interesting grooves in front of regularly sold out crowds, including the 55Bar, where he was discovered by Bob Belden (Miles Davis producer for Sony Legacy).

Jojo Kuo (drummer for Peter Gabriel, Manu DiBango, Papa Wemba) calls Martin “a sorcerer,” Mike Stern (solo guitarist and sideman for Miles Davis, Blood, Sweat & Tears) remarked Martin was “a bad cat”. 
His compositions remind Rae Serrano (Producer, Africa Bambaata, Top 10 Billboard) “of Weather Report and late electric Miles Davis”. Come hear and see for yourself.

Aubrey Johnson Quartet featuring Randy Napoleon – June 28, 7:00 PM

Brooklyn-based jazz vocalist Aubrey Johnson teams up with Detroit native guitarist Randy Napoleon for an exciting evening of originals, jazz standards, and Brazilian music. Joining them will be two of New York City’s most in-demand rhythm section players, Louie Leager on bass and Michael W. Davis on drums.

Performer on two GRAMMY Award-winning albums, Johnson has sung on over 50 albums, including two of her own, and performed with such artists as Bobby McFerrin, Janis Siegel, Fred Hersch, and her uncle, the late pianist Lyle Mays (Pat Metheny Group).

Napoleon’s discography includes nine acclaimed albums as a leader and many others as a side-man, including albums and tours with Michael Bublé, Freddie Cole, Benny Green, and Rodney Whitaker. Napoleon, formerly a New York City resident, now teaches at Michigan State University, where he heads the jazz guitar department.
