Philly fan favorite Chelsea Reed & The Fairweather Nine will be swinging in the new year once again at Chris’ Jazz Café on Friday, December 31! It’s been two long years since jazz lovers have been able to ring in the new year at the legendary jazz club. “We’ve been robbed of our popular New Year’s Eve celebration due to covid restrictions, but as we hopefully turn the corner of this daunting era, we have a lot to look forward to in 2022,” said Chef/Owner Mark DeNinno.
