The Paul Keller Orchestra
The new place may not be as funky as the older jazz clubs, but it is comfortable and has a good stage for the band, complete with grand piano salvaged at auction by friends of the band from the Firefly. If it feels a bit like an older social club, that is because it actually is one, run for good fellowship by Freemasons, complete with a rudimentary food menu and a bar. In Vienna, the Masons were good to Mozart. In Ann Arbor, they have now given a home to Paul Keller and his orchestra.
