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

Friday, December 8th – 6-8pm
jazz in the bookshop: the happy hour show
Eric & the In Crowd

BYOB and a twenty for the band– and a penchant for a good time. Bring friends, neighbors, kids, parents, parrots, whatever ya got. Unwind at the end of the thing we used to call the “work week” by settling into the cozy confines of your neighborhood bookshop, and enjoy jazz & good company with a bunch of fine San Francisco jazz players. It’s a twenty-one year tradition at Bird & Beckett!

The 2nd Friday of every month, we have the pleasure of presenting the potentate of piano, the sultan of swing, the duke of ten digits, Mr. Easifingers himself, Eric Shifrin at the piano in the company of one batch or another of his closest friends and colleagues. Tonight, that means guitarist Gino Raugi and bassist Michael Leal Price.

It’s a happy two-hour happy hour in store for you.

Snag someone you love and drag ’em in here for a good time with Eric & the In Crowd!
