Will Harlan (@WillHarlan) and the Mo Funk Jazz Band at Cafe 290 in Sandy Springs

Oddly, there was less live music on Thanksgiving Eve in Atlanta than I would have expected. I thought about heading to Apache Cafe in Midtown, but ultimately ended up driving out to Cafe 290 in Sandy Springs, where there was a live band called Will Harlan and the Mo Funk Jazz Band. The style was more soul and funk than jazz, but it was a tight and talented band regardless, and I always like the vibe of the venue.

Café 290 advertises itself as a jazz bar, but it’s actually more of a place for R & B and soul. Still, the musicianship is good, the place has a friendly vibe, and it’s usually packed to the rafters. On the Friday night after Thanksgiving, I came through to catch the end of William Green’s set.
