Celebrating Relationships On Public Radio Music Day: Ann Arbor’s Blue LLama Jazz Club Don Hicks
The owner of Ann Arbor's Blue LLama Jazz Club, Don Hicks, agress the mutual support between his club and WEMU helps keep jazz music alive. He describes WEMU as a "key partner" for the club that brings world class jazz artists to Ann Arbor where he says they serve world class food. WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with Don Hicks about the importance of our connection that helps keep the community connected and the music playing.
Don Hicks says "jazz runs in our veins" at the Blue LLama Jazz Club in downtown Ann Arbor. He says while the live jazz hosts and the music they share helps keep the tradition of jazz and blues music alive, the Blue LLama jazz club is the counterpart providing live music performances.
He says jazz is nothing without live music, saying "it's part of the experience" but asks would we even have a community to connect with if WEMU wasn't here keeping the music flame going.
