But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Friday, November 19 – 7:30pm
Tony Johnson Quartet with Bob Kenmotsu
live jazz in the bookshop
and in the stream
every Friday night

Bob Kenmotsu subbed for Charlie McCarthy this time out, joining Tony, Al and Glen on the bandstand. Both Bob and Charlie are stellar tenor players, so no net loss there!

Click here to find a recording of the show on our YouTube channel. You’ll can also find past shows on our Facebook page under the “video” or “live” tabs. Plenty to sample!

Tony Johnson’s monthly booking at Bird & Beckett is a week early in November, for mildly complicated calendar reasons… So amend your appointment book this month, and whatever you do don’t miss Tony in November — His December booking is bumped to January by Christmas… Ho Ho Humph! Anyway, we’re giving thanks to Tony on the 21st for his music and this fine band. Call for reservations! ~~415.586.3733~~ The place has been filling up a lot lately!

Used to finding Scott Foster fielding a band on the third Friday at Bird & Beckett? Wait a week! If you make a reservation, you’ll be able to catch him on November 26 with the New Squatoolas! Don’t wait for the day of the show to call!

Doors open ten minutes before showtime.
If you have a reservation, you must claim it by 7:30.
Once the show starts, we allow anyone waiting for a seat to take what’s available.

Please bring proof of vaccination and a mask,
plus $20 cash for the cover charge.

Can’t get to the shop for the show?
Or just can’t get in due to the throng?

Catch the live stream on Bird & Beckett’s
YouTube channel or Facebook page.

Gigging musicians! You have nothing to lose but your lack of a collective voice to achieve fair wages for your work!
The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
