The Grove Street Stompers: This six piece dixieland jazz band has played at Arthur’s Tavern every Monday night for more than 35 years.  Formed in 1959 by band leader and piano player Bill Dunham, this fabulous group’s repertoire includes samples of Dixieland, New Orleans and swing styles with tunes made famous by such greats as Bix, Louies and Jelly Roll.   Many great jazz musicians sat in with the Stompers over the years - Pete Fountain, Will Bill Davidson, Tony Parenti, Bob Wilbur, and singers Barbara Lee and Laurel Watson.  Check out the Stompers three LP records on the Village Record label.

Jay Scripps Sweeney: This talented singer, keyboard/piano player and songwriter brings his Jay Sweeney Experience to Arthur’s Tavern on Monday nights. Featured as a weekly performer on VH1's RuPaul show, Jay Sweeney also plays with the house band at the famed Café Wha, a gig he began after touring the United States as a keyboard player for blues legend Bo Diddley. In 1997, Jay received recognition for his songwriting and musical talent on his successful recording, Cover of a Magazine.   Influenced by his father, a concert pianist, and his mother, a piano teacher, he headlined as a solo pianist in Norway, Sweden and Australia, before forming the Jay Sweeney Band, a steady popular act on the New York City music scene.  Sweeney’s’ work embraces many tones and styles with ease - delivering music that is sexy, edgy and packed with an energy  audiences love.  In addition to his music career, Jay is a successful film and television actor, model, and saxophone player.
