Jazz Brunch Serves Up More Than Great Food

Going out to brunch is always great, especially because it's an occasional treat rather than an ongoing happening.

Imagine going to a brunch and finding fabulous food for the tummy along with soul-stirring jazz for the ears!

That's exactly what you would have found at MadJacks BBQ restaurant in Pittsfield, Masssachusetts one sultry August Sunday.

The restaurant offers Sunday entertainment frequently so check their website for upcoming gigs.

The day we traveled to this western Massachusetts town for the jazz brunch, the group playing was Theodicy Jazz Collective. 

The music coming from the sax made you want to get up between the tables and dance! 

(Or grab onto one of the hanging ceiling lights and swing!)

There were also musicians on bass, drums, and piano, plus a fabulous vocalist who could easily entertain crowds in Boston, New York City or Los Angeles.

Besides the music, one could enjoy such offerings as melt-in-the-mouth brisket, so tender it just about fell off the fork; bacon, sausage patties, scrambled eggs, creme brulet French toast (to die for), biscuits and gravy as only Chef Jabari Powell can make, hush puppies with honey butter and on and on.

It was quite a brunch from start to finish!

Long live MadJacks BBQ!

Hello from Spain: I have not gone to eat never a JAZZ BRUNCH. It's an interesting idea of restaurant. I also love eating in restaurants. Keep in touch

I have never been to a jazz "brunch", only jazz in the evening with cocktails. The vocalist looked very familiar and I'm sure the music and the food were to die for.

Will have to put Mad Jack's jazz brunch on the list of places to visit soon.
