Blue Note Napa
A Night at the Dream Bowl:1940s

JaM Cellars Ballroom is located on the 2nd Floor of the historic Napa Valley Opera House.

Kellie Fuller & The Mike Greensill Orchestra invite you to take their time machine at the JaM Cellars Ballroom stage for “A Night at the Dream Bowl: 1940s” on Saturday, June 22. The Dream Bowl opened on the Napa/Vallejo Highway in 1941 and hosted the biggest bands of the era including Glen Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey and more.

Hosted by your MC of the evening, KVYN personality and Lucky Penny Director Barry Martin, it kicks off with an interview of Michael Amen, author of “The Dream Bowl: Where Goodman, Ellington and the Grateful Dead Convene” to learn about the history of this iconic dance club that started romances, inspired servicemen and women and brought people together in a fit of swing dancing.

In true “time machine” fashion, there will be a dance floor for all those inclined. 1940s attire or accessories are encouraged.

  • Kellie Fuller

    Kellie Fuller is one of those rare vocalists that cannot be locked into a single genre or decade, performing some of the most beloved songs and hidden gems spanning the early 1900’s through the 1970’s. Breaking through barriers, Kellie delivers wonderful surprises as she brings Jazz, Blues, R&B and The Great American Songbook to the stage with her own blend of humor, intimacy and energy.
  • Mike Greensill

    After graduating in 1972 from Leeds College of Music in England, Mike toured Europe and the Far East and lived in Hong Kong for 4 years before finally settling into his adopted home, San Francisco, in 1977.
     Well known in his role as musical director to acclaimed vocalist Wesla Whitfield with whom he has recorded twenty albums, Mike is also resident piano player on Sedge Thomson's weekly Public Radio show to the world, "West Coast Live" - more info at wcl.org. As an arranger Mike, in addition to his work with Wesla, has had the opportunity to write for big bands and symphony orchestras including the Boston Pops and the San Francisco Symphony.
    Mike has also had the pleasure of accompanying such diverse talents as Rita Moreno, Margaret Whiting, Broadway stars Lillias White and Franc D'Ambrosio and jazz singers Madeline Eastman, Ann Hampton Callaway and Opie Bellas.

    "Greensill is an accompanist in the great tradition of Jimmy Rowles and Ellis Larkins.

    It's worth twice the price of admission just to hear him!" - Terry Teachout - NY Daily News

    Phillip Elwood, jazz writer for the San Francisco Examiner states -
    "Greensill is a wonderful jazz pianist."
