Then from 11PM onwards, the party will continue to the third floor, a totally covered and air conditioned environment, where DJs will be spinning the best tunes until dawn.

Playing on the second floor this Sunday will be DJ Linnê and DJ Mv.

On the third floor will be DJ Afonso Feijó, who’s playing a special ‘birthday boy’ set, followed by DJ Rogério Mussel and DJ Léo Monteiro.

Expect special guests and a whole host of quality jazz musicians for this celebration of Bird. And as they always said, “If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There’d Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats”
