Passim Iguana Music Fund Night

The Iguana Music Fund was established in 2008 after a generous donor decided that he wanted to help artists pursue their musical goals. Artists often have the talent and ideas to create incredible music, but they do not always have the financial capacity to do so. To help musicians overcome financial limitations, the Iguana Music Fund awards annual grants worth between $500 and $2,000 to artists with a residential or tour-based affiliation to New England.

The Golden Magnolias


In May, Brooklyn’s Magnolias released their eponymous debut recording.  The album was recorded at the Magnolia Motel to 1/4” tape and captures the intensity of the bands’ concerts.  It highlights the group’s original songs.  The sound evokes such artists as recent phenoms The Alabama Shakes as well as soul-stalwarts like Fats Domino and James Brown.

Live Dinner Set with Nadia Washington

Beat Hôtel’s live dinner jazz set features world-class musical artists performing exciting & intimate music as a perfect compliment to food & libations.

Jamie Stewardson


Stewardson is an exceptional jazz guitarist and a courageous leader. As a soloist he is full of boundless invention, turning the melody (and he knows what melody is) around on a dime and coaxing the music into places it didn’t know it wanted to go. As an accompanist he’s supportive and strong.
