Allegra Bandy Quartet
live jazz stream from the bookshop
Eric Markowitz – bass
Allegra Bandy and Scott Larson have been playing music together for over a decade in many different settings, from jazz standards, ska and reggae to big band soul. As husband and wife, they share a love for playing classic jazz, a love for the brilliance of good songwriting and a devotion to sharing these classics with the world. Each of them has played stages all over the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. They look forward to continuing building a legacy of jazz performance in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
