"She owns the songs she sings, and that makes her a storyteller and a conjurer of her own life.”

CONCERT - $15 Online/$17 Door, 8:00 pm

The Suzanne Cloud/Tom Glenn musical collaboration started back in 1976 when they both were hired to form a popular, Top-40 disco band that played all over the Philly and New York Metro areas. After a year of laying down the boogie and teaching lead-footed partiers to dance, the band broke up, however Glenn and Cloud continued together writing songs for a musical show Cloud conceived around the 17th century Ben Jonson play, Bartholomew Fair (performed at the Old Painted Bride). After that, lyricist/singer Cloud and composer/guitarist Tom Glenn went their own ways. Cloud stayed in Philly and Glenn went to Boston.

Over the years, Tom went on to become a composer and player who won an EMMY award from the National Academy of Television Arts and garnered BILLBOARD honorable mentions in his wake, composing 20 musical scores for PBS Television, and over 40 music scores for NFL Films. Suzanne left disco (happily) and threw herself into the Philly jazz community with gusto, playing, writing, and recording with such notables as jazz fusion pioneer Eddie Green, pianist Uri Caine, bassist Tyrone Brown, bassist Gerald Veasley, tenor man Larry McKenna, pianist Jim Ridl, guitarist Jef Lee Johnson, and baritone saxophonist Denis DiBlasio. Glenn went on to play with stellar artists, including Chuck Berry, Sammy Davis Jr., Nancy Wilson, Alice Cooper, and Major Harris.

Both have recorded many CDs apart, Suzanne Cloud on the Philly Dreambox label and Tom Glenn on Street Wave Records (UK). Shuffle Time is Tom Glenn’s latest project and Suzanne Cloud’s 1996, politically and musically acclaimed CD With a Little Help From My Friends was recently re-issued. Both are being played on WRTI and WXPN, and Glenn even developed his own Pandora channel –"Beantown Samba". However, now the Cloud and Glenn team have been writing together again and are taking their politically and culturally charged music (along with some jazz standards) to the public at the Paris Wine Bar, Chris’ Jazz Café, and the House of Music.

Well known jazz bassist Tyrone Brown will accompany on double bass.

A Night in Rio!

"A New Year's Eve Celebration - Lansdowne Style!"

CONCERT - $40 Online/$45 Door
8:30 pm to 10:30 pm - dinner, 10:30 pm to 1:00 am Minas in Concert.

A very special New Year's Eve - Lansdowne Style is in the works, so mark your calendars now! Featuring Lansdowne's own Minas, great Brazilian recipes from Jamey's kitchen, BYOB and YOU! We're bringing Carnaval and a taste of Rio to New Year's Eve! Minas will hand out percussion instruments at midnight to lead the audience in drumming in the new year!

Minas Quartet featuring Orlando Haddad (guitar, vocals, percussion), Patricia K. Haddad (keys, vocals, percussion), Jim Stager (bass, percussion), Tom Cohen (drums, percussion)

Featuring core-members Orlando Haddad and Patricia King, internationally acclaimed Minas is one of the most established Brazilian Jazz musical groups in the US today. With a few decades experience performing and recording, the music of Minas creates an intimate and unforgettable musical tapestry that transports and inspires listeners. Indicated for 3 Grammy awards for their 2009 CD release Bossa Nova Day, and 4 Grammies for the 2015 Symphony in Bossa, Minas has performed in Brazil, Scotland, and in US major national venues such as Lincoln Center in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.

Founded in 1978 when Orlando and Patricia were students at University of North Carolina School of the Arts, drawing from Brazilian traditions of samba, bossa nova, baião, axé, combined with American jazz, blues, and folk, as well as classical music, Minas mixes north and south seamlessly.

Jamey's House of Music will whip up Feijoada, the Brazilian national dish for dinner (included in the ticket price). It is a hearty dish featuring rice, black beans (with meat or vegetarian option), greens, oranges, and salsa on the side.

Our regular menu will also be available.

We'll be fixing up delicious bauru sandwiches, for a separate charge. This is Brazil's answer to the Philly cheesesteak, and features roast beef (or vegetarian beef) smothered with mozzarella, tomatoes and pickles on a Portuguese roll.

As always, it is BYOB, so remember the champagne for the stroke of midnight. Go ahead and dress up... it’s Carnaval in Lansdowne!



"BY FAR the best live music venue on the East Coast"

"Last night we debuted at Jamey Reilly’s Jamey’a House of Music. Jamey has outdone himself. He has an incredible backline, and the sound, which he engineers is exquisite. Working with Jamey helps make performing seamless. He knows what he is doing and is an excellent communicator. He is also a musician, which helps a great deal (the man has ears). The food at this venue is incredible. The flavor-I can’t begin to find the words to express how excellent it is. If you have not been to Jamey’s House of Music, get down there, catch a show. Get there early and enjoy the amazing cuisine. It will blow your mind."

"This small room is by far the best sounding music venue I've ever experienced. It's a truly exceptional labor of love..."

"I tell everyone about Jamey and Jamey's House of Music. Everyone in Nashville knows about this place. I play some of the best rooms in the world, like the Bluebird, Douglas Corner, Third and Lindsley, places with great sound systems, and nothing beats the sound in this room. ...This is my favorite place to play in the whole world."

"The sound is absolutely perfect. I could hear every note of every instrument. Just incredible."

"Best. Venue. Ever."

"... a dream performance space. Perfect acoustics, top quality production values, a visually lovely setting, and an overall aesthetic ambience that, like a tea ceremony, lifts every gesture to it's highest level. It's perfection, both for the audience and the performers."
