Pan Jazz Moves to Uptown
Garvin Blake and Friends to perform
at the Uptown Renaissance Restaurant

New York - Pan Jazz is moving uptown, literally, to the Uptown Renaissance Restaurant in Harlem on Sunday May 1.  Making the move for the day, or rather the evening, are Garvin Blake and Friends who received critical acclaim at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall on Father's Day last year and wowed the audience with their performance.

Uptown Renaissance restaurant opened its doors a little over a year ago on April 9, 2004.  The establishment astutely recognized the importance of their community, and therefore remained sensitive to its needs.  Subsequently the Callistes have opted to carry on in the tradition of the preceding establishment, and ensure that clientele from their surrounding community continue to feel welcome, while simultaneously catering to consumers from all areas.
