more!" is played on KCSM-FM, San Diego's Jazz 88,

I'll be backing singer-guitarist Hank Maninger. I used to play Club
Deluxe a lot in the early '90s with the late Khevan Lennon-Onaje, Bruno Pelletier-Bacquert,
and Section 8 Project,
back when it was a center of the 1990s swing scene. It's
still got the Deco style, although last time I was there it
was looking a little tired around the edges. Still a
nice place to dress up for, have a martini or other classic
cocktail, and listen to live music.
