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

Friday, November 25 – Happy Hour! – 5pm
Annette A Aquilar’s Beans on the Left
Rumba n Samba feat. John Calloway

Drive down to Bird & Beckett on Friday, with Thanksgiving and all its trimmings in the rear view.

San Francisco born & bred Annette A. Aguilar is out west and stops in for some coquito & conga action with family and you, her newfound old time friends. After her teen years all over the latin music scene of the Mission District, she finished her B.Mus. in classical percussion at SFSU in the 1980s and headed for NYC where she’s been a force for decades — with her long-time ensemble Stringbeans, annual productions of Women in Latin Jazz festival concerts, and most recently as a member of Arturo O’Farrill’s BronX BandA unit.

In town to be with family and play a few gigs, Annette will roll in to Bird & Beckett the day after Thanksgiving for some happy hour rumba n samba with local hero John Calloway — a Latin Jazz flute player and educator of great repute, and a frequent presence on our stage, plus Anthony Blea on violin & Mike Arnold on bass completing the quartet, and guests doing what guests do best!

Pay what you want for this one, byob, and chillax! No stream, so if you wanna hear it, you’ll just have to come down to the shop!

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.
