The restaurant will host a Jazz Night featuring the Ryan Finn Jazz Trio from 7-9 p.m., Saturday June 23.
Tickets are $15 per person and dinner reservations are required.
Finn recently moved back to Northern New Mexico after seven years teaching and performing music on the island nation of St. Lucia in the West Indies.

Finn has performed with St. Lucian jazz icons Luther Francois, Emerson Nurse, Allison Marquis, Richardo Francois, Barbara Cadet and Ronald “Boo’ Hinkson.
