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

Saturday, June 29th – 7:30pm
Dave Parker Septet

Bassist and bandleader Dave Parker has been fielding highly charged ensembles in San Francisco for twenty years at least, picking and funding great musicians from the local pool to realize his vision. Featuring a strong, propulsive low end of trombone, baritone sax and bass, a cutting trumpet star, a virtuoso tenor sax player and supercharged drums and guitar, Dave’s septet digs deep into compositions by Mingus, Coleman, Coltrane, Dolphy and Morgan and isn’t shy to assay a Bach fugue.

Long-time Glen Park residents will remember the smaller, but equally hard hitting combos Dave squeezed into the Red Rock Lounge and then Le P’tit Laurent on Friday nights starting two decades ago, and thousands of City dwellers and tourists have heard his bands at farmer’s markets and a variety of breweries, restaurants and clubs through the years.

Once or twice a year, Dave brings the group into Bird & Beckett. It’s always a good time, and it’s yielded two “live at Bird & Beckett” releases along the way.

$30 cover charge is requested to help us pay this seven-piece band, but a twenty will do if that’s all you can spare. If  you can spare two twenties, that’ll help even things out. Dave is a patron of the music scene, and we’re happy in turn to channel your funds to support the lively arts in San Francisco.

BYOB if you want something to sip!
