On Sunday, May 1st, 2016, Jaz McKee, Owner of Prime Burger in the lovely city of Glassboro, hosted yet another acoustic show at his restaurant providing great music, quality food, and cold drinks.  Jaz has been hosting shows at Prime for a while now, and each and every event has a very welcoming environment with great people.  Prime Burger opened in April of 2012, and they started hosting shows since early 2015.  Jaz started going to shows at 13, and then started playing in bands around 16.  He has done a few tours, and was in a band called Me Versus I
