The forty year history of Pogo's, Las Vegas' longest running jazz club, is still hosting the Friday Night Jazz Jam, as it has since 1968. However, saxophonist Rocky Gordon, and his band, KGB, bring their contemporary jazz sounds to Saturday night, July 12th. Gordon's father, Irv Gordon, a prominent jazz saxophonist as well who passed away last November, was a regular fixture for years at the same club. Pogo's just went under new ownership this year.
Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns continue their run Monday nights at the Palms to a consistent packed house.
