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

Friday, January 10th – 5:30-8pm
Mike Olmos Quartet
Jazz in the Bookshop
every Friday after work 

Tonight, the
Mike Olmos Quartet

Mike is just the best! And what a quartet he’s fronting tonight at Bird & Beckett…

Mike Olmos, trumpet
Adam Shulman, piano
Joshua Thurston-Milgrom, bass
Evan Hughes, drums

Clarinetist Rob Barics was slated to front this band as a quintet, but had to bow out at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. We’ll miss him badly, but we’re in good hands, believe you me!

Jazz as it’s played in San Francisco in 2020! You’ll want some of this!

Bring $20 for the band if you can afford it. Less if you can’t and more if you’re a silver baron! We love our jazz musicians in this town, and we want them to meet the rent so they can stay on the scene!

Catch trumpeter Mike Olmos at the Club Deluxe, Haight & Ashbury, every Monday night. It’s sublime! But catch him Friday at Bird & Beckett on January 10th, 5:30-8pm in a quartet with Adam Shulman on piano, Josh Thurston-Milgrom on bass and Evan Hughes on drums! Bring $20 for the musicians!

Gigging musicians! You have nothing to lose but your lack of a collective voice to achieve fair wages for your work!
The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
