The Lensmen will play at the Zocalo Café this Friday night starting at 7:30.

Len Wilkie, the Len in the Lensmen will drum in a groove that is based on years of playing with a wide range of groups including the Desperation Jazz Band.

Mike Eddy on piano brings an eclectic sound to this group that explores a variety of musical nuances.

Al West on bass and banjo always keeps the music pulsing and will also have you smiling with his entertaining renditions of some very old Dixie tunes.

Noel Thomas on trumpet is a master of Dixieland and will also pull at your hearts strings with the beauty of his sound and style.

As well as some timely Christmas music, the group will play some very familiar music like Harlem Nocturne, Sweet Georgia Brown and South of the Border along with some great music that you don’t get to hear often enough, including Blue Turning Grey Over You and River Stay Away from My Door.
