Riptide's favorite jazzmaster Jim Grantham says, "Everyone seems to like the new venue. It is very nice and the music is hot. Hope you can swing by sometime. The music will be real, interesting, and varied. We'll feature different musicians and guest artists. No Thursday will be the same." Check them out online at Nightbird Music.
