By: Old Skool Cafe
“Old Skool has been an amazing place for me and my music. It honors the classic while also celebrating the youth, allowing me to experiment with my original music as well as play jazz standards that I love. In addition to the great food, the atmosphere and friendly faces make me feel welcome every time I play. “
“We are thrilled to have Josh as part of our Old Skool family. His immense talent is inspiring for all who hear him play and sing,” says Old Skool’s Managing Director, Lisa Litsey. “We regularly have guests make their reservations to dine with us based on when Josh is performing.”
Tazman’s talents will also be on display when he performs at the opening concert for West Coast Songwriters' 35th Annual Music Conference.
Live entertainment by Old Skool Cafe’s youth performers can be heard during dinner each week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings between 6p – 9p. A new entertainment calendar can be found on Old Skool Cafe’s website, with information on each youth performer and a sample of their music.
