Jazz nights at the O.Henry a local treat

“Picking up the mantle of earlier jazz clubs — Sammy’s, Green’s, Plantation Club, Sam’s Canterbury Inn — Thursday Cocktails & Jazz at 5:30 p.m. and Select Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. both feature practically every subgenre — Dixieland, Swing, Blues, Bossa Nova, Cole Porter, a little Gershwin and whole lot of the Great American Songbook — all of it originating from the magical and sacred space of the Social Lobby of the O.Henry Hotel.”  Read more

Georgianna Penn, O.Henry Magazine

“Greensboro has a true treasure occurring each week at the O. Henry Hotel on Thursday evening at 5:30 and Saturday evening at 6:30. New York “quality” live jazz groups perform in the “living-room” area of the hotel — no “cover charge”! All you have to do is show up and enjoy the music — maybe order a glass of wine, perhaps a cocktail, and maybe a bite to eat, but none of that is required to enjoy the music.”

“This may sound like a commercial; it is not! It is just pure entertainment provided by Dennis and Nancy Quaintance.”

David and Joann Grimes, Greensboro News & Record

“The ongoing series features saxophonist Neill Clegg Jr., pianist Dave Fox, both music professors at Greensboro College; and a rotating roster of cream-of-the-crop featured vocalists. To say that it has been a wild success is putting it mildly.”
