[08/07/19]   To all of our bar patrons it is with much anguish to announce that Ken Volz will no longer be playing here on Thursday nights. His health since his cancer diagnosis has dramatically declined and due to that he with much heart sickness has no choice but to hang up his guitar. We all at the bar employees past and present all appreciated our usual Thursday nights with Ken Volz. Thank you Ken for all of your beautiful music, melodic voice, fart jokes, beatboxing, mouth trumpets, Elvis impressions, and so many more things you entertained us all with over the years of playing here. You surely will be missed by everyone. Thursday nights truly will never be the same. All our love and best wishes. Sincerely, EVERYONE from The Bar. 🍻🎸💔
