The OC Part 2

David, Dylan and I headed out to go hear some live music at the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff for the first time last night. We started our evening off by eating at one of our new, favorite finds in the OC...the "Greek Bakery and Cafe," ...again, where we enjoyed their amazing Gyros. By far, these are the most authentic, tastiest, and best Gyros we've found in town. It's BYOB, so bring your favorite bottle of wine to accompany your favorite Greek dish. If you love Greek food, this is the place to go. We promise you will not be disappointed.

The Kessler Theater was built in 1942, and was recently bought by Edwin Cabaniss and his wife Lisa. After a major renovation, with Jeff Liles as their musical consultant, this place is a great venue to see live music, poetry readings, art exhibits and who knows what might be next?! There's a very cool bar in the lobby, it's totally kid friendly (they even have a babysitter to watch the little ones upstairs), it has a fantastic vibe and is just all around cool. The bartenders were very attentive and took care of our every need. The space is perfect...hardwood floors, a small balcony and everyone has a great seat with nice sightlines and sound. We believe The Kessler has come closest to recreating the live music scene we had when Caravan of Dreams was around. We saw four acts...Chandler Nash, Phoenix Hart, the INCREDIBLE Ruby Jane and Floramay Holliday.  Chandler, Phoenix and Ruby range in age from 15 to 17.  All four of these young ladies are incredibly talented.  We look forward to seeing another show at The Kessler real soon.

Check out a short of clip of Ruby Jane, age 14, tearing it up on the violin. She takes violin playing to a completely different level.
