Starting tonight and every Thursday night after, the Gino Castillo quartet will be playing on the patio at Eli’s Table. Join us for this amazing quartet featuring Afro-Cuban jazz. According to AllMusic.com, afro cuban jazz is “a combination of jazz improvising and rhythms from Cuba and Africa; it is also known as Latin jazz. There were some hints of Afro-Cuban jazz in isolated cases during the 1920s and ’30s — Jelly Roll Morton’s “Spanish tinge” in some of his more rhythmic piano solos, a few Gene Krupa performances where he sought to include South American rhythms, and even in the Latin pop music of Xavier Cugat. However, the true birth of Afro-Cuban jazz can be traced to trumpeter-arranger Mario Bauza.”
Join us at Eli’s Table for fine cuisine by Chef Brett McKee and dance the night away on our beautiful patio to the amazing music of Gino Castillo.

Join us at Eli’s Table this Friday night for the musical stylings of Brazilian musician Duda Lucena. Lucena, singer and composer from Pernambuco (Recife, Brazil) “creates exquisite, romantic music, reminiscent of all the great Brazilian vocalists of the sixties who first introduced the rest of the world to Brazil’s unique sound, but with a modern freshness and originality,” wrote MARILYN M. GRAHAM, music critic for Destino magazine in Los Cabos, Mexico.
Lucena has performed in a variety of venues, theaters, festivals, and nightclubs, playing his own original muxic. Locally, Lucena has played at the Footlight Players Theatre, Charleston Music Hall, Piccolo Spoleto, and the Charleston Jazz Society to name a few.
