Walking into the 606 is like walking into the Jazz club of childhood dreams! That's how I felt the first time I stepped foot in the place. It's dark, it's cool, and it's oh so Jazz.
Imagine my joy when the wonderful Steve Rubie asked me to do a gig at his famous venue. YES PLEASE! I think that was about six years ago and I've been playing there regularly ever since.
There's no pretence at the 606. What you see is what you get - and it's marvellous. Beautiful music in a club that was made for the genre. Steve has created a place where you are made to feel like family. He has encouraged and nurtured hundreds, if not thousands of musicians and given them a platform. It's a stage for sharing with the audience, sharing with fellow musicians, and watching yourself and others experiment and grow - and all of that is so important when you are an artist.
I must also mention the wonderful staff. Whether it's a deep and meaningful or a good old giggle, they can give it to you when you need it.
Thank you Steve and all the amazing staff at the 606 - I'm very grateful. Here's to the next 30 years and beyond!
