I’ve been pounding this drum for a long time…now here’s some muscle to back that up:
Heidi’s Jazz Club has been listed in the top 50 jazz clubs throughout America. The rankings come courtesy a website called ClickItTicket.com
Here’s what ClickIt Ticket has to say about the Cocoa Beach night spot:
“If you find yourself on Florida’s Space Coast, and you have a desire for some magnificent live jazz, there’s only one place to go and that’s Heidi’s Jazz Club. Live music is scheduled Wednesday through Sunday. On Sunday night’s, Heidi hosts an open jam session beginning at 7pm. The club opened in 1992.”
Congratulations Heidi Deleuil for this great recognition.
And really, if you have never been there, then you are missing one of the best delights on the Space Coast. Cool music, a romantic dance floor and a sensational menu created by her husband, Eddie. BTW, Eddie has been recognized by La Chaine des Rotisseurs as a Maitre Rotisseur…so, yeah…the cuisine is the tops.
Next up at Heidi’s: Friday and Saturday night Ronnie Leigh performs with the Ron Teixeira Trio and Steve Luciano on guitar. Leigh has performed with The Drifters, Spyro Gyra, David Sanborn, Etta Jones and many more. He also founded Jazz in the City. Admission $20. For reservations, call 321-783-6806. Heidi’s Jazz Club is at 7 North Orlando Ave., Cocoa Beach. For more information, visit HeidisJazzClub.com.
