WILMINGTON- For nearly a decade, beginning in the late ‘90s, Wilmington’s Mo’ Jazz Café served as the only legitimate club for miles around offering jazz exclusively on weekends. It was an intimate bohemian-style haunt that was housed beneath the Wilmington Village Pub.

Pianist Christopher Bakriges held court at Mo’ Jazz, often appearing with artists making their pilgrimage from around the world.

Bakriges will take to the stage at Memorial Hall to commemorate and honor the café in a monthly series entitled “Mo’ Jazz Remix,” beginning on Friday, June 14, at 8 pm.

Joining Bakriges will be James Daggs on bass, Kevin Sharpe on drums, and special guest vocalist Janine Hamilton. The kickoff concert benefits West River Habitat for Humanity.

After all, it takes a village to build a house. All donations will help West River Habitat for Humanity build its fifth house in the area for a family that needs “a hand up, not a handout!”

Admission is by donation. Refreshments, beer, and wine will be available.
