At New Haven’s Owl Shop, originally founded in 1934, one would think they had a better shot of finding an imported Cuban cigar than a live band. Not so anymore. The famed College Street smoke shop and bar has relatively recently branched out into hosting live music Monday through Wednesday nights. Formulated as a means of attracting a more diverse clientele to the Owl Shop, the music series also provides one of the few outlets for blues and jazz based music in downtown New Haven. Monday nights currently feature the blues/roots rock of the Brooklyn based Jim Oblon Trio. Tuesday nights continue with more blues (and a bit of soul) from the New Haven based Greg Sherrod Blues Band. Wednesday nights finish off the series with the jazz/funk/rock sounds of the Ansonia based George Lesiw Band. Although the Owl Shop still maintains its smoke shop feel (including the fact its one of the last bar’s in the state you can still smoke in), the addition of live music surely makes it much more.
