(series ran from March 2018 to October 2019)
The Blue Note Jazz clubs are recognized around the world for their level of excellence and production, and the monthly Pro Jam at the Napa Blue Note in downtown Napa, CA was created and hosted by Flynn from May of 2018 through October of 2020, and is still operating, after Covid re-openings have now allowed for more events to take place again.
“The best part of the weekly Mix It Up ProJam is the players that always came to participate, and the surprise guests that really changed things up. You never knew what was going to happen. One night, we had a gentleman come in with a Steel Kettle Drum and completely switched up the dynamic for everyone. The monthly ProJam is always a very awesome night!” – Flynn
The incredibly talented House Band, known as “The Blue Mixers” assembled by Flynn consisted of John Wheeler (guitar), Greg Rahn (piano), Steve Trovao (drums), and Tony Saunders (bass). Not only have they continued to produce music together, but are now known as The Noteworthy Band.
