Greetings and welcome to the online presence of the Labyrinth Walk Coffee House!
The LWCH is a live music venue featuring a variety of musicians and events. Our events include our monthly JazzJam as well as both indoor and outdoor concerts. We hold Jazz Under the Stars in the Spring & the OakCliff JazzFest in the Fall. Vaudeville Night has become an annual night of music, dance and comedy in August and December will bring back the Winter Solstice Celebration!
Next Event: April 12th, 2015
5:00 - 7:00pm
Do you love playing Jazz?
Do you love singing Jazz?
Do you love listening to jazz?
Would you enjoy listening to Jazz in a quiet setting while having a glass of wine or cold beer and letting the sounds take you away to places you enjoy?
Jam will start at 5pm and end around 7pm. Admission is FREE!!!
Players bring your instruments of choice, voice, and your Real Books (Hal Leonard 6th edition VOL I & II) and join in with the fun. If you want to try something newly written, bring it along as well. All tips will be distributed evenly among the performers.
We will not have equipment for musicians to use on these evenings, so please be as self-contained as possible.
Please RSVP if possible to firstname.lastname@example.org so we will know how many of you to expect - if not then just show up anyway. All are welcome!
If you participate by listening, please bring your wine, beer and a feast for your appetite. We have had listeners even bring a candelabra to decorate their table for the evening.
Come planning on having a great time and hearing some of the finest musicians in the Metroplex. Invite a friend to come with you. The admission is free but the experience is priceless!!!
A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

For a Very Special Event!
Markley & Balmer Concert for St. Cecilia
7:30pm to 10:00pm.
Tickets are $15 at the door
You can buy your tickets at the door,
or safely online in advance using PayPal.
Markley and Balmer, together with the Labyrinth Walk Coffeehouse, are thrilled to be hosting a concert to benefit the music department at St. Cecilia School here in Oak Cliff.
ALL proceeds from ticket sales will go to St. Cecilia School!
(LWCH has graciously donated the use of their space and their sound man for this event!)
St. Cecilia School, (St. Cecilia being the patron saint of music), is located in north Oak Cliff, two miles down the road from the Bishop Arts District. The school was established in 1935, and serves students here in Oak Cliff. The school is abundant in heart, but not in dollars. Many of the students at SCS are Catholic Charities scholarship recipients, and also qualify for the federal lunch program. St. Cecilia School remains committed to affordable tuition in order to better serve their parish and community. This does not leave much money for music equipment.
Lisa Markley is the music teacher at St. Cecilia. She is striving to bring the music program there to the next level, (such as arranging jazz and Latin-jazz for percussion and marimbas), but cannot accomplish this without "all the notes." The Chromatic add-ons for all the "Orff" xylophones will be an estimated $2000. (Think of this as finally getting all the "black keys" for your piano.)
St. Cecilia's vintage collection of Orff xylophones was donated to the school over 30 years ago in memory of the passing of their music teacher, Mr. Matthew Smith. Lisa wishes to continue the work of Mr. Smith in his memory.
"Miz" Markley is hoping also to raise enough money to purchase a classroom set of ukuleles--ideal for preparing smaller hands (2nd-3rd grades) for the guitar. This will cost approx. $1500+, (also, a classroom set of smaller guitars would be a secondary fundraising goal for the students when they are ready to transition to guitar).
Markley is hoping to expand their drum collection with 4 more "tubanos" (a free-standing student drum similar to the conga). This will make it easier to facilitate drum-circles with a full class.
Finally, (pie-in-the-sky), a proper set of choir risers runs about $3000+ (portable with safety rails on back and sides).

We are dedicated to serving our surrounding community by featuring a wide
variety of quality musical artists in a non-smoking, non-alcoholic
environment. We are an active member of the community and we are proud
to support local and regional charities.
How We Do This
Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff donates its facility to the
coffee house, which is run entirely by dedicated volunteers.
If you are
interested in becoming a volunteer, please email us at contact @ labyrinthwalkcoffeehouse.com
Proceeds from donations at the coffee house are used to provide entertainment and support local charities.
We are always seeking quality talent! Started in July 2005, the LWCH featured monthly concerts for a number of years and now presents a series of special events, including Jazz Under the Stars, the Oakcliff Jazz Festival and the Winter Solstice Celebration as well as the occasional concert.
As musical quality varies greatly from the studio to a live setting, we do not book based on CD
alone. Stage presence is
very important in our venue. If you are going to be playing in the area, please let us
know so we can catch you in action! If you would like more information on getting booked at
LWCH, please email us
