Grant’s back!

Grant Levin, a uniquely talented jazz pianist, has  been in as a sideman a couple of times in the past few months, but those have been rare opportunities to catch him here since the pandemic kicked in.

Tonight marks his return to Bird & Beckett as the leader of a jazz combo, and what a combo it is!

Grand experiment tonight:

Buy a $15 ticket to the Facebook Live event

or watch it on YouTube by donation
and pay what your economics allow
$5 to $25 suggested donation!

We pay a “guaranteed fair wage”
$150 to each musician performing
in our Friday and Saturday evening live streams
and you are the first ones we look to in order
to get that money together, so please do what you can!

We are extremely grateful as well to the many individuals
in the community who donate to our nonprofit
Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the “BBCLP”)
to help us build up the general fund from which
we augment audience donations when necessary!

Monthly donations are particularly helpful.

Donate to the BBCLP at this link to further our work!

We also thank and gratefully acknowledge
the City & County of San Francisco’s Grants for the Arts
for operating support of the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project!

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.
