Welcoming 2021 at Middle C Jazz

Happy New Year from all of us at Middle C Jazz! We are excited to ring in a healthy and happy 2021 filled with more music. We can’t think of a better line up to begin with in 2021. You won’t want to miss Joe Gransden and Maria Howell this weekend – together again!

A Note on Middle C’s COVID Readiness

The following quote is from a COVID ambassador who visited the club last weekend for a surprise inspection:

“While visiting your establishment I observed the following items in compliance:

  • Employees wearing masks
  • Patrons wearing masks
  • Employees and patrons were social distancing
  • Social distancing signs on floor
  • Sanitizing high traffic areas
  • Sanitizing wand was utilized
  • Mask, Occupancy/capacity, and social distancing signs on entrance door Overall, the facility is in compliance!

During the visit I also found the following items that need to be addressed:
None – facility was in compliance. At this me, no follow up visit is needed.”
