Dan Barrett, Itinerant Jazz Trombonist

Almost every jazz musician I know dreams about owning his or her own club. If I had my own place, I'd want it to be just like the Jazz Corner. It's one of the classiest, "grooviest" clubs in which I've had the pleasure of performing. (I'm still trying to figure out if it's a great jazz club that's also a first-class restaurant, or the other way around!)

Denny & Marilyn Brandon

We were delighted with our experience at The Jazz Corner. We were entertained and thrilled with the talents of The Earl Williams Quartet. Lavon's piano skills and Clarance's bass guitar skills were fabulous.

Elaine from TN.

Hi, Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed The Jazz Corner, especially Bobby Ryder's performance on Monday night while we were there on vacation. I've always liked jazz, but was not particularly "into it". My sister, brother-in-law and I came there looking for something different. It was without a doubt the best thing we did while on the Island. The people there are just sweet, down-to-earth people who did everything possible to see that we had a good time. The food was out of this world (thanks to the chef) and the show was completely unexpected. It was way beyond our expectations. We enjoyed it so much, we had to come back the next night. We left the next day, but you can bet if we ever come back to the Island - we'll be there at the The Jazz Corner. It was the highlight of our vacation and we'll recommend it to anyone going there. We hope to make it back soon. Thanks again for a great experience!

George from Canada

Hey Bob,

Congratulations on the BCAC award. You richly deserve it for all you have done for jazz on the island and in the low country.

I'll look forward to more award winning music when I get back to HHI in the winter.

Congratulations Bob! on the first HHI Mayor's Award for the Arts. This is no surprise to me, because The Jazz Corner is the best place for music, food and entertainment. Your staff has always been friendly and customer oriented. And, it is amazing to watch you and Lois mingle with the crowds, enjoying everyone and every minute of the night! Because of the two of you, you have a superior place of entertainment for people to enjoy. What a splendid, terrific job you are doing with the Junior Jazz also.

Jeremy Davis, Equinox Jazz Orchestra, President of the "Friends of Johnny Mercer"

I wanted to drop you a note of thanks for last Monday night. I performed with John Brackett and was very impressed with your place. The room sounded wonderful, looked spectacular...the crowd was amazing and your employees were truly a pleasure. You've really got something special going over there. Please know that I would love to come back anytime with John or with Kirk Lee and my band.

Cheers.

We had the best time when we came to see 'Deas Guys' . The place was hoppin! We wish the tables could have been moved aside so we could dance. We had to dance in the little space next to our table. With music that great it's hard to sit still!

Len Brown

My first exposure to The Jazz Corner was 22 May 2008 when JOhn Brackett played. Our group really enjoyed this. I don't live in the area, but whenever I pass thru I will make it a point to stop and hear some good music and taste some good food. Thanks for a great evening.

Rhonda, Girls In Motion

Kellie, Thank you for the Jazz experience of a lifetime. We really enjoyed ourselves. The food and show was great. I would like to know if you video the shows and how can we obtain a copy, if so? Also, kuddos to Earl, Lavon, C.W. and band. All of them are AWESOME! We would like to know if they have pictures that can be autographed? I can go on and on. That let's you further know that we had a blast. Again, thanks for everything!

The Hawes from Crestwood, KY

This is a general comment about how my whole family loves visiting The Jazz Corner when we come to HHI each year. My children are 8 and 11 now, they first visited The Jazz Corner when they were 5 and 8. This year we will be visiting during the Jazz Festival in June. I am certain we will again have a great time. I appreciate this is a place where adults can go and children (who behave) are also welcome!

The Jessee's

We just returned from the first of our two annual trips to the island. We spent three evenings at the Jazz Corner and as usual , all three were most enjoyable. The "Corner" is a primary reason to visit the island as we recognize that it is really" a one of a kind experience. Great smiles, service, food and music...the "Corner" always is a treat! We just wanted to say thank you for caring to search for excellence in every area of the business. The new chef is a great example of that decision making. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
