Every Friday evening, the Des Moines Social Club hosts the Jazz & Roots Happy Hour in The Basement.


Bella Donna is influenced by the Ozarks, the creak of tree limbs in the winter, and the summer sounds of cicadas. The traditional music that flows through the hills and hollows of the area the group was raised in helped them form their sound called Ozark Jazz.

Bella Donna has been busy playing shows throughout the midwest and parts of the east and west coast for the past six years. They are currently recording their second full length album that will be available in early 2017.

“As one may expect from the namesake, Bella Donna comes to your ears with a mysteriously intriguing and seductive sound. Rooted in jazz, the ensemble plays with a beauty and darkness that melodically winds itself around your eardrums and sensually sways you into submission” –
