Billy Goat Strut Revue

$15 cover at door

Join us for a swingin' jazzy (and perhaps a bit raucous) Mardi Gras celebration! Put on your masquerade's finest and come on to swing away the night with Billy Goat Strut Revue!

It’s been an unpredictable journey since our founding Billy Goat (Mark Hamilton) took a trip to New Orleans and quickly became intoxicated with the city's rich musical culture and tradition. He brought us together on a cold and rainy Kentucky autumn day in 2011 and shared his vision of forming an ensemble of all-star players for an old-time project.

Through our progression as a band, the moniker “Antique Jazz” started to float around. With the addition of tunes that contained hints of Kentucky flavor and an irresistible twang, we realized our strange version of jazz embodied the influences of a Kentuckian mode de vie.

Marianna Bell is joining up with Stirfry and Friends for a fun pre-Thanksgiving party.

Stirfry Musette (formerly Hay and Ellis Stirfry) has an eclectic style which flies from gypsy to Latin to Celtic and and jazz and includes original compositions and musettes with an upbeat and dynamic spirit!

Jeff Ellis’s lightening-fingered guitar playing melds with Joanna Hay’s expressive violin and mandolin and Ben Griffith’s jubilant accordion and upright bass, while Jordon Ellis adds his unique flavor on percussion. This group will surprise and delight its audiences with its varied repertoire. This band brings joy to its performances, which are filled with laughter!

Derby Celebration with Small Time Napoleon

Join us for our day long Derby Celebration, and top it off by dancing and swinging to the retro sounds of Small Time Napoleon. We will show the Derby on the big-screen TV, and the show starts shortly afterwards. Folks with tickets automatically have reserved seating, but drop-ins are most welcome!

Small Time Napoleon has been described as “a mad science blend of western swing, hot jazz, and folk” by Insider Louisville’s Kyle Ware. Their live shows are intimate and natural while remaining energetic. Their combination of swing-era influence with modern inclinations has driven them to a sound and style that is both new and old and wholly their own.

Occupy Music

Music for the Occupation

Kentucky Wild Horse

$7 - Seating reservations are filled, but standing room will be available

Old-time, bluegrass, swing, original music by one of the best string bands in Kentucky. John Harrod, Paul David Smith, Don Rogers, Jesse Wells and Roddy Puckett. MP opens at 7 p.m. with Nathan Link and members of the Centre College Appalachian Ensemble.


Kentucky Wild Horse takes its name from an old eastern Kentucky fiddle tune played by Wolfe County fiddler Darley Fulks (1895-1990) who possessed a vast repertoire of pre-Civil War tunes. Kentucky music from the 19th century down to the present, especially its fiddle and banjo traditions, has been our love and our inspiration.

Christabel & the Jons

$10

Christabel & the Jons is currently on tour from Louisiana to Maine and everywhere in between, promoting their album “Custom Made for You” and singing a bunch of new bossa nova and country swing tunes which will soon be recorded on their third CD, "The Same Mistake." Lead singer and songwriter Christa DeCicco is earning a reputation as one of the southeast's finest laid-back jazz singers. Old suitcases and vintage clothes from the 1920s-1950s give the performance a nostalgic ambiance, but it's the songs that really captivate. They can often be found in thrift stores as they travel from town to town, hunting for clip-on ties and cocktail dresses.
