Hi Dan, I’m a 25yr plus patron of the SJF.
We would love to see ‘Maceo Parker’, (if he’s still in concert’, at a great venue like this, along with his “side-kick” Candy Dulfer. They put on an amazing show! Thanks

I remember when Maceo closed Saturday night in 2012! It was a great time!

According to Wikipedia, he turns 80 in February.
