Blue Note Napa Reopens
After 20 long months, with hundreds of performances postponed by the COVID pandemic, Blue Note Napa will celebrate its reopening with two nights featuring smooth jazz great Eric Darius on Friday, November 12 and Saturday November 13, 2021. In addition, and wanting to open with a local touch after all this time, a very special pre-opening show on Thursday November 11, 2021 has just been announced featuring Napa’s own, Bay Area vocalist Kellie Fuller along with The Mike Greensill Trio. Bookending a 2021 autumn and winter of great music will be a New Year’s week run with the club’s premier performer, Kenny G, playing December 30, 31 and January 1.
The downtown Napa jazz club has been closed since March 2020. In the interim, Blue Note Napa staged an outdoor concert series outdoors at Charles Krug Winery featuring the likes of Dave Koz, Los Lobos, Pink Martini, Taj Mahal and Chris Botti among many others. Blue Note Napa, located at 1030 Main St. on the first floor of the Napa Valley Opera House, is now excited to reopen its doors in downtown Napa and welcome back live music lovers from the Napa Valley and beyond.
The iconic club will also unveil some exciting modifications after renovations to the club’s main areas. The remodeling allows Blue Note Napa to offer additional seating options and an elevated viewing area inside of the club.
The full grand reopening lineup includes:
• November 11: Special pre-opening with Kellie Fuller & The Mike Greensill Trio
• November 12 & 13: Grand Opening with Eric Darius
• November 19: Django Festival All-Stars featuring Samson Schmitt, Pierre Blanchard, Ludovic Beier, Doudou Cuillerier, and Antonio Licusati
