Nothing warms the palate like an explosion of flavor or the heart like a burst of the song! Chef Ginger loves to jam on Asian culinary themes! Her menu reflects both gustatory tradition and a sense of play and innovation.

Both as a leader and a sideman, Rusty Scott has been one of Boston's premier talents on the keyboard for over 25 years. He plays piano and Hammond B3 organ and tours worldwide with the B3 Kings, his own Rusty Scott Trio, and the five-time Grammy nominee Roomful of Blues. Over the years Rusty has performed with many notable jazz and blues artists, including James Cotton, Bill Pierce, Yoron Israel, John Hammond, “Sax” Gordon Beadle, and “Sugar Ray” Norcia. He has performed at countless venues and festivals including Lincoln Center and the main stage of the Montreal Jazz Festival. In 2013 Rusty was named Outstanding Keyboard / Organ Player in the Blues Audience's reader's poll.

Rusty's pianistic style is molded from the stylings of the great be-bop pianists of the 40s, 50s, and 60s including the likes of Tommy Flanagan, Hank Jones, Wynton Kelly, Bud Powell, Bobby Timmons, Ahmad Jamal, and Sonny Clark. His Hammond B3 organ influences include Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Shirley Scott, Billy Preston, Booker T. Jones, and Art Neville. Rusty grew up in Gillette, NJ, and is a graduate of Berklee College of Music.

ONE OF THE BEST YOUNG JAZZ SINGERS IN THE COUNTRY TODAY. SHE'S THE REAL MCCOY."  - TONY BENNETTDonna has been invited by none other than Tony Bennett to open several of his shows both in the U.S. and abroadDonna Byrne is a jazz singer at the top of her game. With sultry good looks and a quick wit, Donna is not only a masterful singer, but also a true entertainer. She has performed with such renowned artists as: Sir Richard Rodney Bennett, Herb Pomeroy, Dave McKenna, Dick Johnson, Frank Wess, Stanley Turrentine, Scott Hamilton, Bucky Pizzarelli, Ken Peplowski, Bill Cunliffe, Harry Allen, Gray Sargent, Carmen Cicero, Dave Frishberg, Eddie Higgins, James Williams and The Artie Shaw Orchestra. She has opened for such performers as Lou Rawls, Bob Newhart and the great Tony Bennett on his national tour (the “thrill of a lifetime” for Donna). Her unforgettable performances have entertained audiences from L.A. to London, wowing audiences at such venues as: Blue Note Jazz Club, Tavern on the Green, Blues Alley, Scullers, Regattabar, Jazz Bakery, The Rainbow Room, and London’s Pizza on the Park. She’s also toured Florida, performing with Herb Pomeroy, Dave McKenna and Ruby Braff. Her audiences have been filled with such luminaries as the legendary Margaret Whiting, who “thoroughly enjoyed Donna's performance,” and Tony Bennett, who dropped in for his birthday just to hear Donna sing his classic “It Was Me.” Mr. Bennett became an ardent fan, once flying home early from the Super Bowl just to catch Donna perform. https://www.donnabyrne.com/
