Got Club: Smaller venues make Jazz Fest sizzle

By Sue Lange - Reading Eagle correspondent

The Boscov's Berks Jazz Fest gave me a great opportunity to discover who's who on the Berks music scene and where the hot spots are. It was an exhausting two-week club crawl. I'm still recovering.

A word about jazz. Are you laboring under the belief that jazz is some sort of esoteric, beatnik-inspired, what-is-this atonal muzak best consumed with Pernod on ice in a brick-walled, smoke-filled, basement in Paris? Well, my friend, it's not like that at all. Although the Pernod does add some je ne sais quoi. As does Paris.

At Jazz Fest I saw everything from pumped-up Allman Brothers covers to big band bop to smooth jazz to, yes, even the intellectual, atonal, rarefied offerings for the seasoned consumer. Loved it all.

I spent most of Jazz Fest in the local clubs rather than chasing after the big-ticket events. The clubs are my beat after all. Thanks to our hosts at Canal Street Pub, The Peanut Bar, the Abraham Lincoln, Inn at Reading, Sofritos, West Reading Tavern and elsewhere, I can once again testify: Reading got club!

I loved every one of the shows I attended, even the weird punklike thing at the Hiester Lanes and rarefied improvised chamber music at the Yocum Institute. But the most electric was the final day's event at Grill Then Chill. If you have not been to this club you need to get there ASAP.

Earl Lucas has been creating businesses and helping the community for years.

It’s the start of happy hour on a late Wednesday afternoon, and the Grill, Then Chill Bar & Lounge in Reading is beginning to fill up.

Old-school jams by New Edition and the Jackson 5 play in the background, and on a set of flat-screen televisions along the back wall, commentators discuss preseason football. Owner Earl Lucas bounces around like a pinball, talking with his regulars, explaining repair needs to a handyman, slipping on a crisp suit jacket for a photo shoot. In a minute, he’ll head back to the kitchen and start prepping orders.

“I’ve been an entrepreneur for as long as I can remember,” said Lucas, 46, who, along with his wife, M
aribel Cosme, opened the lounge at 400 Woodward St. in May. “I knew I had to create something for myself. I guess that’s where my drive comes from. I didn’t have no choice. I had to make it work.”
