Eric Shifrin & The In Crowd!
the original line-up!

eric-and-bingBassist Bing Nathan and drummer Dennis Norby have been associated with pianist Eric Shifrin for decades, and the three made up the first iteration of The In Crowd, a good time trio steeped in jazz and more eclectic material that grew up in the time of the 1990s San Francisco swing dance scene.

The In Crowd, with a number of great players coming and going and coming back again, has always had Eric Shifrin at its heart.  Eric is just the king of the San Francisco saloon pianists, putting together a pleasing repertoire that goes from Cole Porter to Hoagy Carmichael to Gene Autry.

The In Crowd has been charming the swells, swindlers and stand-up guys in bars and bistros from the Barbary Coast to Nob Hill for decades and shows no signs of flagging.
