Tonight begins a monthly residency by The Hollywood Hot Shots. On the second Wednesday of the month, the Steve Allen Theater is the place for “upstairs hot jazz” with guitarist John Reynolds, brother Ralf Reynolds on washboard (they're the grandsons of ZaSu Pitts!) and special guests Seth MacFarlane — yep, he sings — and the Ditty Bops.

Second Wednesday of every month, 8 p.m.; Wed., July 9, 8 p.m., 2008
