Kevin Fitzsimmons Quartet at DCK
Dry Creek Kitchen
317 Healdsburg Avenue
On Monday the Dry Creek Kitchen will heat up with the hard-charging post-bop vibe of the Kevin Fitzsimmons Quartet, a Sonoma County favorite thanks to the sharp playing of the leader on drums, Chris Amberger (formerly with Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Donald Byrd, Red Garland, among others) on bass, Delta College Music Department head Aaron Garner on piano, and polished sax man Francis Vanek (who has played with Ernie Watts, Tom Scott, Eddie Daniels among others).
Officially Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen, the sidewalk-side restaurant of the Hotel Healdsburg has been a favorite of visitors and locals since it opened in 2001. The restaurant features California cuisine with fresh local ingredients, and the Jazz & Wine dinners feature a special three-course meal for a prix fixee, and paired wine (for additional fee) to match.
There is no cover, but reservations are highly recommended for these events; phone (707) 431-0330.
