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

Friday, November 24th – 6-8pm
Tony Johnson Quartet

Classic, swingin’ jazz from four master practitioners of the art!

Tony Johnson has been on the scene since 1960, and has never stopped. His bandmates are a generation or two younger, with three to four decades apiece in the business, playing at a high level all along the way.

Kids welcome! Give them a taste of America’s great art form in a friendly setting. Under 12, free. Pay ten for the teenagers in your care. Adults? $20 will get it! Teens & music students on your own, $5-10 sliding scale.

We like to pay the musicians (in fact, we make a point of doing so), and do that with solid support from our audiences and neighborhood donors. Be in that number, when the saints coming marching in!


See you at Bird & Beckett!
