Los Alamos jazz moves to the Dixie Girl Restaurant this weekend as the Craig Martin Experience (CME) brings its blend of smooth horns and a swinging rhythm section to the town’s newest music venue.

“We were ready to groove the afternoon crowd at Beer and Band on Pajarito Mountain, but the lack of snow nixed that,” band leader Craig Martin said. “Victor Medina, owner of  the Dixie Girl, stepped in and offered us a chance to perform for the dinner and after dinner scene.”

CME will perform 6- 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the pub room. The group will play plenty of dance music from Duke Ellington classics to some funky arrangements of tunes from Cannonball Adderley and Eddie Harris, as well as some originals from band members.

The dinner hour begins at 5 p.m.at the Dixie Girl. Reservations are suggested.
