Live Music Every Month!

Join us every last Friday to experience phenomenal blues musicians!
September 30th will feature Ida Blue!

...Born and bred deep in Mill Basin, Brooklyn...long and lanky, with gold nameplates and brass knuckles, she proves day-in and day-out that swagger is the name of the game. Ida makes a sweet song sassy, a bitter song rawkus, and a love song raunchy. Her performances are in a class of their own, and Blue is timeless; working as a conduit to give that same quality to the music she shares. Ida Blue is a female-led Bodega Blues group, with its core emanating from the rich and roaring voice of Brooklyn born Ida herself.


These are just some of the people who work hard to make sure that Friday Night Blues NYC thrives.

DJ Coordinator
John discovered dance during the neo-swing revival of the late 90’s in Chicago and has been hooked ever since. His dancing and teaching are grounded in the blues aesthetic and an appreciation for the physical expression of the emotions of the music.

Ish first discovered partner dancing when a friend tried to hook him up with a swing dancer many years ago. The hook-up failed, but his love of dance took hold, and as a photographer, he’s all about capturing the joy and connection that only dance can bring.
