CNN at Zoey’s Cafe

Technically CNN’s Headline News taped a segment at Zoey’s Cafe in Ventura this week to spotlight the venue’s popular “bluegrass jam” that’s been held twice a month for seven years. Why is little ol’ Zoey’s getting attention from CNN? Because Phil Taggart, a longtime poet and artist in Ventura, is also a producer for Time Warner Cable, and as such has been showcasing Ventura County hotspots and points of interest for CNN’s local version of Headline News.

The jam routinely draws upwards of 50 musicians and fans to the cozy venue for top-shelf finger pickin’ and all around good vibes.

For something totally different file, the jam is getting ready to evolve into a “Swing Jam” beginning Sept. 1 and every first and third Monday thereafter from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The jam is hosted by Gene Rubin, Zoey’s Cafe (Steve Hoganson) and Phil Salazar.
