Dear Friends:

Another strong weekend at both clubs.  Mezzrow has been receiving some extra love recently.  People just seem so happy to be there.  I've been getting the most wonderful compliments from the guests in regards to our environment, the music, the staff.  It seems as if everything is in harmony with the club and the neighborhood.  We just got our renewal on our liquor license, which means that we officially put two years under our belts.  It's certainly been an amazing two years - exciting building the business up and seeing the reactions to the place.  We've gotten some awards and some recognition but the most gratifying is the wonderful feeling I get from the musicians themselves who perform at Mezzrow.  Everyone loves the acoustics and everyone loves the audiences, who are really sophisticated and well-behaved.  I think we have the most austere, intellectually stimulating and gentle bar in the city.  If you still haven't come to Mezzrow, please do.  Come join us and enjoy some of this music.

I also want to remind everyone about our remarkable audio/video archive.  We've been archiving every show at Smalls since September of 2007.  This adds up to more than 11,000 videos and representing more than 1200 artists.  Subscribers get unlimited access to this archive and about 30 shows are added weekly.  Most importantly we created a 50/50 revenue sharing system that pays our royalties to the artists.  By becoming a subscribing member of SmallsLIVE you are supporting the jazz musicians and the clubs themselves.  If you're curious about what the videos look like, check out our Youtube Channel - CLICK HERE.  If you like what you see and want more, check out the archive page on the site - www.smallslive.com/archive.

As always - I look forward to seeing you in the neighborhood and at the clubs.

Best Regards,

Spike
