The 230 Jones Street Band
remembers Si Perkoff (1937-2024)

With its roots in the Friday-after-work jazz party started by veteran tenor player Chuck Peterson as a trio back in 2002, the 230 Jones Street, Local 6 Literary Jazz Band is the legacy band at Bird & Beckett. It’s been led in recent years by drummer Tony Johnson, with pianist Si Perkoff joining up a few years ago. Tonight, the combo, with Max Perkoff on piano and trombone, celebrates the late, much missed Si!

Here’s video of Si’s first appearance with the band, a sextet date in October 2022, with reed players Noel Jewkes and Charlie McCarthy in the front line, Glen Deardorff on guitar, Chuck Bennett on bass and Tony Johnson leading the band from the drum kit.
