Hello, my fellow music lovers of Charlotte, NC!! Dani Stavropoulos here giving you the latest scoop on everything Middle C Jazz!

I have seen with my own two eyes what Middle C Jazz brings to the people of Charlotte: not only a night of happiness through the beauty of music, but also a venue that takes you to NYC without having to even step on a plane. Seeing the customers enjoying themselves, making new friends, and singing their hearts out … I mean how could I not rave about an environment like this! The more you come to Middle C Jazz, the more you will want to stay!

The Heart and Soul Christmas Show Featuring Nils and Johnny Britt

Friday and Saturday, December 17th and 18th, night we had the honor of welcoming Nils and Johnny Britt to the MCJ stage for the first time. They presented their holiday show, “The heart and Soul Christmas”, for the clubs’ audience and they were an absolute hit!! I was working Saturday night at the club and giving my goodbyes to all the guests, and I swear more than ten people approached me to say, “they need to come back here, we loved them”!! So don’t just take my word for it, listen to your fellow charlotte music lovers as well.

Gospel Sunday at Middle C Jazz – Holiday Edition featuring BRAVE Entertainment

Sunday, December 19th, was twenty twenty one’s last Gospel Sunday show and it was fantastic! I had the pleasure of working that day and if I wasn’t in the Christmas spirit already, I one hundred percent am now. Their angelic voices filled the club with such spirit, and you could truly feel “Santa like” once leaving that afternoon. With this year moving so fast it almost did not feel like Christmas to me and after this past Sundays’ show… its Christmas time yall!!!! Time to jingle bell rock our way into the new year.

Jazz ‘N Soul Music Presents “A Charlie Brown Christmas featuring the Sean Mason Trio and Tyra Scott”

Wednesday and Thursday, December 22nd and 23rd, Sean Mason performed on the MCJ stage and filled the room with holiday cheer. The show consisted of tunes from Charlie Brown Christmas album, and it was truly a nostalgic night with all the Christmas classics. Seeing everyone enjoy themselves and get into the Christmas spirit was such a pleasure. When working at the club the only thing I care about is having everyone enjoy themselves and leave wanting to come back. It truly is the best feeling knowing all of you had the best time here at Middle C Jazz 🙂
