The Chuck Boogie Trio is a jazz band whose Hammond organ-fueled grooviness hearkens back to the golden age of the coffeehouse. It seems there was a time (before Starbucks domination) when a person could grab a hot cup of joe and listen to some passionate musicians bust out swinging versions of Marvin Gaye songs. The beauty of checking out the Chuck Boogie Trio on this night is that instead of playing in a coffeehouse, they'll be jamming amongst the opulent swankiness of the Commonwealth Lounge. So skip the coffee; start your Fourth of July weekend with a Manhattan, and groove on it.
