Seating for Friday Jazz opens at 6 p.m. It is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. 

December features the music of singer Nia and her group One27.

About One27

Nia singing with her group One27.

With her melodic blend of Kompa, Soul, and R&B, Haitian-American singer Nia is a multicultural vocal powerhouse. She began her career as the lead singer for the Haitian musical group Zin in 2003. Nia traveled widely with the band, which headlined the popular Haitian Compas Festival in Miami for several years.

After more than a decade with Zin, Nia began working on a solo project called The Real Me, which she dedicated to her fans, and put together the band päSH to showcase her love of R&B and Kompa.
