Big Band Mondays are alive and well at Steamers Jazz Club in Fullerton. Every week, the jazz club and café hosts an ensemble of musicians that takes you back to the era of Goodman and Krupa, Calloway and Dorseywith this round going to Bill Strouts Big Band 2000. The group have held the second-Monday-of-the-month residency to much success, cramming more than a dozen tuneful folks onstage. And when paired with vocalist Shannon Lee Blas and her smoky pipes, Bill Strouts Big Band 2000 turn Steamers into a sizzlin hotspot. Never mind that its a Monday night; this is the place to be for a good pinot and even better music.
