Playing the music of King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet and Bix Beiderbecke, the Jim Cullum Jazz Band is a San Antonio classic you have to experience at least once. No cover, but dinner or appetizers required, 7-10pm, Mondays, Tucker’s Kozy Korner, 1338 E. Houston St., (210) 320-2192, tuckerskozykorner.com
