"The annual Birthdaypalooza concert is back!!"

CONCERT - $18 Online/$20 Door, 8:00 pm

Singer-songwriter Dan May’s career path has taken more twists and turns than a corkscrew in a hurricane. He has worked as a grave-digger, television cameraman, short-order cook, nuclear missile security guard, gas station attendant, ice cream truck driver, delivery man, amusement park worker and greenhouse laborer; all before the age of 25.

While studying music composition in college, he inadvertently stumbled upon an international opera career that forced him to leave a promising future as a songwriter behind. Cut to 15 years later, and after a vocal cord surgery that left him no longer able to meet the demands of opera, Dan returned to doing what he does best; writing and performing his own songs.

Dan May has a way of crafting a song that immediately resonates with the listener.  Referred to by the Philadelphia Inquirer as "a master storyteller," he's released 6 albums of Americana songs in a short 10-year span, and his latest CD, "Heartland," like the other five, has met with critical acclaim.  And whether those songs are about pain or joy, the listener feels like a part of the story being sung.  In addition to his songs, his live shows include excerpts read from his new book "Adventures In Grocery Shopping, named as one "Best Books of 2016" by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

A Night in Rio!

"A New Year's Eve Celebration - Lansdowne Style!"

CONCERT - $40 Online/$45 Door
8:30 pm to 10:30 pm - dinner, 10:30 pm to 1:00 am Minas in Concert.

A very special New Year's Eve - Lansdowne Style is in the works, so mark your calendars now! Featuring Lansdowne's own Minas, great Brazilian recipes from Jamey's kitchen, BYOB and YOU! We're bringing Carnaval and a taste of Rio to New Year's Eve! Minas will hand out percussion instruments at midnight to lead the audience in drumming in the new year!

Minas Quartet featuring Orlando Haddad (guitar, vocals, percussion), Patricia K. Haddad (keys, vocals, percussion), Jim Stager (bass, percussion), Tom Cohen (drums, percussion)

Featuring core-members Orlando Haddad and Patricia King, internationally acclaimed Minas is one of the most established Brazilian Jazz musical groups in the US today. With a few decades experience performing and recording, the music of Minas creates an intimate and unforgettable musical tapestry that transports and inspires listeners. Indicated for 3 Grammy awards for their 2009 CD release Bossa Nova Day, and 4 Grammies for the 2015 Symphony in Bossa, Minas has performed in Brazil, Scotland, and in US major national venues such as Lincoln Center in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.

Founded in 1978 when Orlando and Patricia were students at University of North Carolina School of the Arts, drawing from Brazilian traditions of samba, bossa nova, baião, axé, combined with American jazz, blues, and folk, as well as classical music, Minas mixes north and south seamlessly.

Jamey's House of Music will whip up Feijoada, the Brazilian national dish for dinner (included in the ticket price). It is a hearty dish featuring rice, black beans (with meat or vegetarian option), greens, oranges, and salsa on the side.

Our regular menu will also be available.

We'll be fixing up delicious bauru sandwiches, for a separate charge. This is Brazil's answer to the Philly cheesesteak, and features roast beef (or vegetarian beef) smothered with mozzarella, tomatoes and pickles on a Portugese roll. A free glass of Yards draft ale will be given with each bauru sandwich!

As always, it is BYOB, so remember the champagne for the stroke of midnight. Go ahead and dress up... it’s Carnaval in Lansdowne!



"BY FAR the best live music venue on the East Coast"

"Last night we debuted at Jamey Reilly’s Jamey’a House of Music. Jamey has outdone himself. He has an incredible backline, and the sound, which he engineers is exquisite. Working with Jamey helps make performing seamless. He knows what he is doing and is an excellent communicator. He is also a musician, which helps a great deal (the man has ears). The food at this venue is incredible. The flavor-I can’t begin to find the words to express how excellent it is. If you have not been to Jamey’s House of Music, get down there, catch a show. Get there early and enjoy the amazing cuisine. It will blow your mind."

"This small room is by far the best sounding music venue I've ever experienced. It's a truly exceptional labor of love..."

"I tell everyone about Jamey and Jamey's House of Music. Everyone in Nashville knows about this place. I play some of the best rooms in the world, like the Bluebird, Douglas Corner, Third and Lindsley, places with great sound systems, and nothing beats the sound in this room. ...This is my favorite place to play in the whole world."

"The sound is absolutely perfect. I could hear every note of every instrument. Just incredible."

"Best. Venue. Ever."

"... a dream performance space. Perfect acoustics, top quality production values, a visually lovely setting, and an overall aesthetic ambience that, like a tea ceremony, lifts every gesture to it's highest level. It's perfection, both for the audience and the performers."
