“Simply, I look forward to hugging my friends, welcoming both new and former customers with a firm handshake without any fear. As importantly, I want to feel the energy of a packed house applauding our musicians!”

-Larry Farber, owner

“I am looking forward to spending New Year’s Eve with our neighbors enjoying good food, spirits and remembering what we are all thankful for!”

-Adam Farber, owner

Growing up on a beach community in NY, my family had a tradition of taking a long walks together on the boardwalk, sometimes with the snow during the holiday. It always made us feel that family was the most important thing you could have. My wish for 2021 is that we as a community, continue to value our family & friends, and come back stronger than ever.”

-Teddy Johnson, managing director

“I am looking forward to more people being able to safely enjoy our wonderful artists, music and MCJ experience!”

-Reid Farber, programming

“Family also covers colleagues, friends, and Middle C Jazz patrons. Happy we all made it through safely to keep the music alive another year!”

-Sean Urquhart, operations manager

“It never feels like Christmas until I hear some of my favorite holiday songs and carols. I’m so grateful that Middle C gave us all a place to celebrate this time of year with wonderful music–what a gift!”

-Lizzie Taylor, hospitality concierge

“In a year of outcries for health and racial healing, music has been the great unifier. Thank you all for your contributions.”

-Cree White, assistant manager

“I’m looking forward to 2021 with a new puppy!”

-John Brighton, audio/visual director

“The arrival of Christmas begins a process of reflection of the wonderful things that happened during the year and contemplation of what I expect will happen in the next.”
-Scott Homewood, box office
