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

Saturday, July 31 – 7:30pm
Darren Johnston Trio
jazz club
when the lights are low
every Saturday

Darren Johnston, trumpet
Kasey Knudsen, saxophone
Jon Arkin, drums

As Darren says, “While we’ve played together in various contexts over the years, this will be the first time for this particular ensemble.  Please join us as we freely frolic through some swing, grooves, abstractions, and surprising new takes on bebop standards.”

$20 cover charge; cash please. BYOB

Masks are required inside, except for horn players when performing and imbibers while imbibing.
Please protect each other.

Also live streamed on YouTube and Facebook. At show time, search either platform for Bird & Beckett to find our channel/page and locate the event.
Your donation (instructions on the screen) help us compensation the musicians and maintain the live stream function. $10 is nice. Donate what you can.

Please join us anyway you care to!
