For years, Racer Cafe has brought together various artists, musicians, and performers in a welcoming and accepting atmosphere. Their longstanding Sunday sessions have fostered a community of like-minded artists from every walk of life.
The record label Table & Chairs started the Racer Sessions at the cafe over three years ago to work on musical composition and allow for free improvisation. The event has since prided itself on being the nucleus of a vast, intricate network of artists, and has always been synonymous with inclusivity and compassion.
The Racer Sessions cover a much larger scope than just jazz, welcoming and encouraging all types of improvisors to join the sessions. Open-mindedness of both the staff and patrons has made the Racer Sessions such a success.
