The Jazz Forum Club Opens in Tarrytown, Westchester Magazine, May 24, 2017
More than three decades after he closed his last music venue, Mark Morganelli just opened Westchester’s only club dedicated strictly to jazz.
The January 2017 issue of Westchester Magazine named “jazz clubs” #3 on a list of the most needed additions to life in our county and #9 was “cooler music clubs.”

#9 – Cooler Music Clubs: “Not naming any names, but there are three fabulous music clubs near Westchester — in Beacon, Pawling, and Piermont — that consistently draw big-name touring talent and charge fair prices. What is Westchester, chopped liver?
