An amusing place for live jazz

This isn't a question, but after visiting it on our recent trip to Buffalo, I really want to highlight the Colored Musicians Club to other TA users, and they don't have a 'Things To Do' entry. We had so much fun! Their website's calendar lists a couple different weekly opportunities to visit the Club and listen to live jazz. We were thrilled because we were in town on a Thursday night when one of the bands regularly plays. What we didn't realize was that this is basically this band's rehearsal night. It was a lot of fun for my group because we're all musicians and we know that the rehearsal is usually more interesting than a polished performance. They also have a little bar: the selection is limited but it's cheap! Added bonus is that the musicians take a whiskey break midway through rehearsal, so you might get to have a drink with one of the players. And there's no cover (it's a rehearsal, after all). The entire evening for three of us cost $10! Two notes of caution: first, the club is up a steep and very narrow stairway, so be ready to climb; second, the website says they start at 8:00 pm, but this is jazz--on the night we were there it was close to 9:00 by the time they had a quorum to start rehearsing.
