Try Bistro à JoJo on Rue Saint-Denis between Rue Ontario and Rue de Maisonneuve East. There is also Bar Jello, which is on Rue Ontario East, but they mix nights of R & B, Funk, and Blues, so you will have to check the schedule. You can also hear some great players at the Upstairs Jazz Club at 1254 Mackay Street just south of Rue Sainte-Catherine, and a number of other clubs and bistros up Boulevard Saint-Laurent, and along Avenue Mont-Royal. Pick up The Mirror alternative newspaper at any of the free bins in town and check the listings for who is playing where. Good luck!
