Despite increasing competition from nearby Howard Theatre (see below) and other venues, the Caverns remains a player, hosting both its own orchestra and international jazz artists like Federico Peña. Decades ago, the likes of Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday performed here, and for a time in the 1960s, Miles Davis and John Coltrane took the stage. The supper club usually presents two performances a night, 5 to 7 nights a week.
