Each Thursday (and special performance dates throughout the year), you will be treated to a different jazz group in the intimate space known as "The Merc". The Mercantile is one of Temecula's original buildings and has been beautifully restored. We wanted to take advantage of this venue and bring you straight ahead jazz every Thursday evening in this acoustically inspired space.
