Saturday, Sept. 12th – Grant Levin!
Double Header: Duo at 4, Quartet at 7:30
DUO: Pianist Grant Levin is in the store with a duo format from 4 to 6 pm, Saturday the 12th, with Pepe Jacobo on drums. It’s a fruitful collaboration that grows more interesting with each outing.

Read a recent article on Noel here, a bit on Kash here, and here for Rufus’s work.
We ask $10 at the door for our Saturday night dates, absolutely one of the great entertainment deals in town. “jazz club” happens every Saturday at Bird & Beckett from 7:30 to 10 pm.

Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
