One of the unexpected perks of the holiday season, as far as nightclubs are concerned, is the return of musicians so dizzyingly talented that they fled for bigger cities—only to return to see family in late December, and pick up a few dates while back home. Kai Devitt-Lee
is a jazz guitarist of boggling aptitude who graduated from Healdsburg High School’s jazz program and swiftly made a beeline to New York City, where he now turns heads gigging regularly. He returns to play for friends, family and in-the-know locals on Monday, Dec. 30, as part of the dinner entertainment at Dry Creek Kitchen. 317 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. 7—10pm. Three-course dinner, $36. 707.431.0330.
