Jim & Dave will serenade you while you enjoy some fantastic Italian cuisine.

Chef Mike Niccoli’s menu walks the line between Mediterranean and Modern Italian, with an emphasis on freshness and wood-fired fare. Niccoli, an Albany native, is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America with honors, Voted Chef of the Year by his local chapter of the American Culinary Federation in 2015, recipient of the Albany Business Review 40 Under 40 Award in 2010 and has been a Culinary Instructor at Schenectady County Community College for more than six years.

Working up some great sets for the next show.

Good news is we are hard at work now adding some great songs to the sets for the next show at Emack & Bolio’s. You know we only select the finest material for our shows. Thats what we like about the show—no klunkers!

Tonight we practiced mostly new songs or songs we want to revisit. Can’t really get into the details other than to say we really know you’re going to enjoy the next show.

So please mark your calendars for December 10th. It’s only a few weeks away. It’ll be so great to see you all again as we rock Emack & Bolio’s— acoustically that is.
