Over the years, Dorothy Paige-Turner and Ron Holm have collaborated on a variety of exciting musical projects. Their first was the Between Planes Emery Christiansen album, which won critical acclaim in national distribution. Last September, Dorothy was a featured performer in the Ethnic Heritage Museum’s Jazz and Blues Festival at Rockford’s Sullivan Center. Ron directed the house band, and Between Planes musical partner Janel Nelson anchored keyboards.

State St. Admission is $5, and wonderful cuisine and beverages are available in a lovely room with stage and dance floor.
