Sunday Groove: Live Music at Superfine

Superfine (126 Front Street) has been known for their Bluegrass Brunches. This March, the venue expands its live music repertoire with country and bluegrass brunch (noon-3pm) and Roots Americana artists from 7-9pm. Lineup is listed below; we highly recommend longtime DUMBO resident and musician Jan Bell.
