The Blue LLama Jazz Club Takes a Break

The Blue LLama Jazz Club on Main Street in Ann Arbor decided to take a break as the pandemic worsened when winter set in. In a letter to their guests, musicians, friends, and family they announced that the Jazz Club, Jibarito and Of Rice and Men Modern Asian Bistro will take a break.

The letter says:

“We are not closing permanently. We mean too much to each other to just say good-bye. Thanks to your support you have made the Blue LLama one of the brightest stars in the sheltering indigo sky of jazz venues. Ann Arbor is a major destination for jazz artists again…. For the musicians that have graced the Blue LLama stage, we know how hard this difficult time has been for you. The community loves you, and we all want you to stay safe. Keep at your art and we will open our stage just as soon as we can…Our plan is to reopen the Blue LLama and Of Rice & Men as soon as we can operate at full capacity, safely and properly. We figure that’s going to be in spring or summer of 2021, but like our musicians we are playing this tune by ear. We will let you know as soon as we know.”
