The Cleveland Heights jazz club Nighttown has played host to great local and national jazz acts for 50 years now. To celebrate, it has booked several special concerts that take place this week. On Wednesday, guitarists
Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniola will perform. Vignola is the first act that local promoter Jim Wadsworth produced at Nighttown back in 1999 when he was just promoting concerts on a freelance basis (he now books the club on a full-time basis).

On Thursday, the "official 50th Anniversary Party" takes place, and the club will feature “dozens of NE Ohio artists that have performed [at the club] over the years.” On Friday, local jazz man Howie Smith headlines and on Sunday, sax great Buddy Sullivan plays the club along with local act the Joe Hunter Trio.
