Mona's Hot Four

This jazz quartet consisting of Gordon Webster (piano), Nick Russo (banjo/guitar), Jared Engel (bass), and Dennis Lichtman (clarinet) isn’t exactly a well-kept secret anymore (they have two albums), but hearing them perform Prohibition-era jazz at Mona’s, an unassuming East Village spot, feels like a treat every time.

Mona's Monday Night Bluegrass

After just three years, this weekly jamboree led by guitarist Rick Snell has become an East Village tradition. Some of the city’s finest musicians drop in to play bluegrass, Texas swing, sea shanties, Irish trad, early jazz, civil war songs and more. Consider it the antidote to Mumford & Sons, and join in if you know your way around a mandolin or banjo.
