One of our favorite singers, Jessi Lee Ross, is having an art opening tonight, Friday, June 5th, at Java Good Day Cafe (231 Main St., East Greenville), from 6 p.m – 8 p.m. Her abstract paintings just went up on the wall the other day, and should be on display for most of the summer. However, if you would like to take one home when the show ends, stake your claim and put your money down sooner rather than later. And you’ll have a chance to hear Jessi sing at Make Music Upper Perk on June 21st; at Art on Main, 1 p.m. and at Java Good Day Cafe, 3 p.m.
Katie Rice may also be displaying her artwork at Java starting tonight.

He is “Gifted and talented” says the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. “He plays the organ with the technical prowess of a rock star,” says the Arizona Daily Star.
