Dear Alley Cats,

There are hardly words to describe the excitement of celebrating the close of 2020, and letting it drift into the rear view mirror. This is the first time in 40 years we've been closed for New Year's. Being able to Ring in the New Year with you has always been a pinnacle celebration we've embraced and we will miss it deeply. Without question, 2020, will be a year forever remembered.

Over and over again, we're amazed and humbled by your continued patience and support. Much appreciated are your daily emails and social media posts, as well as your purchases of Gift Certificates and Jazz Alley merchandise. Thank you for holding steady with your previously purchased tickets while we await artist reschedules and for purchasing tickets to future shows; this is of utmost importance. You have reinforced our commitment to community while warming our hearts, lifting our spirits, and giving us strength. Thank you.

The music calendar is filled with artists waiting to return allowing all of us to embrace the joy of music. Even though it seems like we are in an ongoing game of artist leap frog, this too shall pass. We know first hand our dear artists are eager to resume their livelihoods as well.

As we head into 2021, we await approval for re-opening. Please know we've gone to great lengths in preparation. Each of our nine HVAC units now include new state of the art "Plasma Air Ionizers" which clean our air constantly. We now have massive "Air Handlers" that circulate six tons of outside air continuously. To see a complete list of our upgrades Click here. We are ready to go!

In the meantime, we've been keeping the heart beat of Jazz Alley alive five days a week as our kitchen crew prepares and distributes meals to feed those less fortunate within our community. Special thanks to Bill Cahill of Beacon Plumbing for their ongoing financial support to help keep this project alive. We have been working in partnership to support those affiliated with Byrd Barr Place, Northwest Food Alliance, Jubilee Women's Center, Sacred Hearts, Mary's Place, Seattle Council of Churches, OPERATION: Sack Lunch, Mt. Zion Baptist Church and many others... with close to 100,000 meals prepared and delivered to date.

Sending wishes for a wonderful New Year's Eve and healthy 2021.
