The Boston area has been a haven for blues enthusiasts for as long as anyone can remember. And, for over a quarter-century, the longest running area Blues Jam takes place right here at Johnny D’s.

Young and old, veteran or just starting out, there is a spot for all on our Sunday afternoon jams. And because the Blues is a wide spread idiom, we make a point of welcoming both electric and acoustic, Delta, Chicago, Piedmont, rural or citified, all are invited.

The Green River Formation of the former Fossil Lake in Wyoming contains some of the most detailed and beautiful fossils you have ever seen. These are fossils of fish, mammals, reptiles, invertebrates and plants that have the quality of a fine work of art. LANCE GRANDE, paleontologist and a curator at the Field Museum for Natural History, Chicago has spent over 30 years working on uncovering some of these prehistoric treasures. His new book THE LOST WORLD OF FOSSIL LAKE: SNAPSHOTS FROM DEEP TIME is a stunning visual showcase of these fossils.
