Jazz at the "House" Presents

Guitarist Brian Nova

 Come to Vintage House for a spectacular afternoon of Jazz!

Concord Recording Artist Brian Nova is considered one of the top Jazz Guitarists / Vocalists in the nation, according to a recent poll in Jazz Improv Magazine.  Joe Pass said of Nova: ‘I feel Brian is one of the finest Jazz Guitarists on the scene!’  He combines a rare mixture of melodic jazz guitar and eloquent vocals and has the distinction of being the only guitarist who was mentored by and toured with the two titans of Jazz guitar: Herb Ellis and Joe Pass. Rock Icon Steve Miller says: ‘I’ve met and known a lot of guitarists in my career, and ‘B’ is the best guitarist I’ve ever met.’ 

Brian is a Benedetto Artist - “Benedetto Artists” represents the world’s top tier of jazz guitarists known for influencing several generations of the finest musicians worldwide.  The "Benedetto Artists” category features musicians who are widely acclaimed as the finest players by their peers, having expansive discographies, and touring credits with Jazz Masters.

Strength and Toning

Level I and Level II

Strength training is a key component of fitness. It helps maintain good posture and combat osteoporosis. Each series covers strength training basics through 12 classes. This full-body workout is designed for beginners and those who want to maintain and refine their existing weight lifting skills. You can repeat the series multiple times.

To get the most out of this training, you should already be exercising on a regular basis. And, you must plan to attend all classes in the session.  Each class builds on the previous one.

  • You must be able to get down to and up from the floor (one time each class).
  • Bring two 3-pound weights and an exercise mat. A small towel for neck comfort is recommended.
  • Wear closed-toe shoes and clothing in which you can move and be comfortable on the floor.
