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

Friday, June 16th – 5:30-8:00pm
The Scott Foster Happy Hour Trio

Daniel Fabricant and Brandon Etzler, two fine jazz musicians, join Scott in a nice little guitar trio, on bass and drums respectively. You’ll enjoy a rich and relaxed ride through two ample sets of jazz standards and classics, bebop and the inimitable territory of Thelonious Monk.

Scott Foster has been Bird & Beckett’s favorite San Francisco guitarist for more than two decades for good reason. Come and find out why!

Our Friday happy hour shows (2-1/2 hours worth) are open to all, we just ask that you donate what you can to help us pay the trio. A twenty works best, but if that’s a real strain on your purse, then just donate what you can. We want everyone to enjoy the music no matter their economic circumstance. All the more reason for you to err on the side of generosity if it doesn’t wreck your budget. What you put up subsidizes the ones who aren’t such huge winners in the lottery that’s lovingly referred to as the American economy!

Do byob if you want something to sip. We have fine Hetch Hetchy water, but anything else is up to you.

Bring a twenty for the trio if you can afford it, less if you can’t manage it, more if you’re so inclined.

Come and enjoy live music from three superb players in the coziness of your neighborhood bookshop! And thanks for your support of live music performed by the Bay Area’s substantial cadre of supremely talented musicians! The culture persists with your invaluable help.
