WAYJO Goes Underground – New Concert Series with Open Jam to hit Lyric’s Underground

Introducing WAYJO Live @ Lyric’s Underground, a series of jazz concerts followed by a jam session held first Sunday of the month at Lyric’s Underground – a stone’s throw from 8th Avenue and Maylands train station.
