Experience the enjoyment of a Jazz Concert, and Southern Fish Fry Buffet that will delight any palette cooked on site in the traditional jazz way.


During the 1930 perhaps even earlier, Harlem was not the only Jazz scene. Brooklyn had one as well. Bedford Stuyvesant had one of the largest Jazz neighborhoods around. Bed Stuy held many venues housing jazz greats like Thelonius Monk, Lena Horn, Randy Weston, Miles Davis, Max Roach, Hank Mobley, Abbey Lincoln, plus others. Paramount Theatre located in Brooklyn among other theaters held major Jazz Concerts. All things eventually changed, and jazz club fizzled out in favor of a different music generation. Uptown and Midtown changed as well.

Debbie McClain owner of Sankofa Aban BnB looked to revive the local community jazz scene of the past when she met partner Eric Lemons, an accomplished string musician and Co-Founder of BrownstoneJAZZ values authenticity and selectiveness when deciding who to feature, and when. Intimate, classic acoustic concerts, plain and simple every Friday and Saturday night. A fun loving atmosphere of live jazz for everyone.

You’re invited to spend a magical evening of music with Debbie and Eric taking you behind the scenes undercover some unheard of jazz history with a different experience. You can purchase the right ticket and get there early, meet the performers, before you take a seat for a Jazz Fest of a lifetime. These two host will present you with some of today’s best entertaining jazz artist. Continuing the history of the neighborhood, a group of jazz locals and broadway greats Blue Note recording artists like James Spaulding, Trombonist/Euphonist Kiane Zawadi, vocalist Keisha St. James, Boncellia Lewis, Greg Bandy and Bobby Sanabria connect over music in a tradition that’s diminished, but certainly not lost.

FYI

DebbieMc never set out to own a BnB, but once she did, magic happened. A hairstylist by trade when her grandparents 1939 home fell into her lap to save and maintain. Much bad energy once filled the property, but she knew that music would cleanse this 19th century home. Shortly there was born BrownstoneJAZZ.

Debbie McClain's life always surrounded itsef around music. Once at child age long time student of piano, is just one of now a 6 generational family of music lovers. Also at the same time she would be able to show and share the beauty of the homes from Brooklyn begone.
