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 email@example.com 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.

Hillrise Band - Hillrise Band members Paul Harrington, Stephen Valenzuela and Mike Box found the meaning of "All roads lead back home" as they traveled their musical roads and found themselves back together again. It is a friendship in music that started more than 20 years ago on a chance meeting. They call themselves Hillrise to pay respect to the place where they grew up as musicians and brothers. Their sound is a collection of the lessons they have learned throughout the years in which they have laughed, cried, fought and loved over.

Numerous times they have opened for the legendary Shawn Phillips who said, "You two sound like four or five people!" Kent has also opened for or shared a stage with notable performers such as Robert Fripp, Sara Hickman, Josh Alan, and many more.
Reggie Rueffer began violin instruction in 4th grade, is self-taught on guitar, and has been writing songs since his teen years. Reggie has led or performed in various genres of musical ensembles including alternative rock (original music bands Mildred, Spot, and The Hochimen), country/western (the legends Ray Price and Charley Pride, Johnny Bush, Jake Hooker, Jim Snider, The Insiders, Bobby Flores), classical/jazz (Christopher McGuire), Arabic folk/jazz (Beledi Ensemble), “Texclectic” (Paul Slavens) and Bluegrass (The Andy Owens Project and, currently, Sgt.

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
