Stay tuned for the next B&B benefit party in Jerry Ferraz's backyard! Here's some video of the last one!

Joe-McKinley-and-Grant-Levin

Sunday, November 12th – 7:30-9:30 pm
The Grant Levin / Joe McKinley Duo

The art of the duo…

The last two months of the Grant Levin residency at Bird & Beckett that started in June are underway!

In November, we continue it with a duo on the 2nd Tuesday, a trio on the 3rd, a quartet on the 4th.

Tonight it’s bassist Joe McKinley making the music with Grant. Joe has been making beautiful music with Grant since they first met on the bandstand. You’ll hear two sets of hugely satisfying music from masters of the art.

$10 cover charge for the care and feeding of the musicians.

December will break the pattern, as we present two trio dates, on 12/10 and 12/17; Grant will be traveling come the fourth Sunday.

In January, it’ll be a new ballgame. Watch our calendar. It’ll be well worth the effort.

With fear of eternal damnation religion crushes intellectual activity; with hero worship it destroys individuality; with hopes for the beyond it prevents the growth of ideals for the present. It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."

-- Job Harriman, 1902
