There never is a dull moment when John Girton is at the Holbrooke Hotel.

That’s where he often entertains, and this Friday from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. is no exception. He’ll also be there New Year’s Eve.

Girton, a Nevada County fixture going on 22 years, knows how to please the crowd. In other words, he will play jazz, swing, blues and one-of-a-kind folk originals Friday and Tuesday at the hotel’s Golden Gate Saloon.

In addition to playing solo, Girton has performed with the best of the best, including Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, Maria Muldaur, Jonathan Richman, Bonnie Raitt, David Grisman and Jackson Browne, just to drop a few names.

There is no cover charge.

The Holbrooke is at 212 W. Main St., Grass Valley. Call 273-1353 for any questions.
