You won’t be sorry!

Tonight, 3/21, Kai’s doing a solo set, and then is joined by pianist Javier Santiago and bassist Giulio Xavier Cetto for the rest of the evening, right up to 10pm!

No in-store audience during the current kerfuffle, but folks are caught the live stream and the spirit worldwide!

Check it out this on Bird & Beckett’s facebook page. No need to be a facebook member to see the stream. To make it easy for you, we’ll put a link here when the show starts at 7:30pm. Try this one for now.

Jazz club… when lights are low! every Saturday in Bird & Beckett’s own purple grotto!

Catch it live or catch up with it later on our website and fb page.

Here’s a recording of Kai’s quartet with pianist Parker Grant, bassist Robb Fisher and drummer Brian Etzler performing at Bird & Beckett in November 2018!
