Best of 2012: Lori and Doug Chandler of Take Five Coffee + Bar

Before ushering in 2013, we asked members of Kansas City’s music community to reflect on some of their favorite local moments of 2012. Today: Lori and Doug Chandler, owners of Take Five Coffee + Bar.

“There was no conflict between the two of us over which two experiences this year really struck us as transcendent. One was a show at the Brick on September 5 – Snuff Jazz and the Mike Dillon Band featuring Carly Meyers. We had no idea who Carly was, had never heard of her. Wow, what a wonderful freak. She just tore the room to rubble with the wacky energy and intensity of both her dancing and her trombone playing. A perfect foil for someone like Dillon.”
