A 2,700 square foot dance hall comprised of a hardwood maple floor, intimate cafe area, dining room, and kitchen with Wolf Range.
On February 5, 1915 nine women of the Monroe district of Santa Rosa, California gathered together to form the Monroe Neighborhood Clubhouse. Meeting in homes, local halls and even chicken houses, these gatherings soon became work parties when WWI arrived. The women took up their knitting needles, sewed, set up jelly, and helped the Red Cross meet the needs of our troops. Seven years later, on April 27, 1922, the present hall was built and founded by the membership of the Monroe Neighborhood Clubhouse, whose numbers now reached thirty-four.
Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s have been the torchbearers of a great American blues musical heritage for two decades.
Taking their inspiration from the great jump n’ boogie out ts of the late 40s and early 50s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock n’ roll. Woods styled his group after the jumpin’ n’ jivin’, shoutin’ n’ honkin’, pumpin’ n’ poundin’ bands of Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, Joe and Jimmy Liggins, Amos Milburn, and Roy Milton. Adding a healthy dose of New Orleans rhythm and blues, piledrivin’ piano, and some of his own contemporary playful lyrics, Woods and His Rocket 88s forge their own brand of music they call “rock-a-boogie.”
