We Don't Discriminate.
To our regular guests, it may seem silly for us to make such a statement. You all know. We have never believed in exclusivity. When 111 Cakery refused to serve a gay couple, we contacted them and asked directly what the truth of the situation was. Once they informed us, we told them we would no longer be doing business with them. When someone asked us to attend a gay only event, we asked if we could bring our straight friends. When they said "no" we did not attend. Our business is about inclusiveness. We are all the same. Come enjoy some fun around the Piano and you'll get it.

Sunday Funday Brunch, June 5: New Music with the Yeager Swing Quartet Performing!
Brand new to the Chef Joseph's stage, the quartet has jazz roots as far back as early 20th century New Orleans and all the way to contemporary straight ahead swing. Their primary influence is the music styling of Django Reinhardt and his contemporaries such as Bireli Lagrene and Stochelo Rosenberg. While Django is a major influence of the group, american jazz has played a large roll in the development of each musician. The music of Bill Evans, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus and Louis Armstrong, among many others, all have an equal influence.
Adam Yeager, the founding member of the group, is an Indianapolis native and received a Bachelor's in Jazz Performance at the University of North Carolina Asheville. He currently can be found playing solo or with other musicians all over town.
