Jose Simioni Trio
North Beach travels to Glen Park

Jose Simioni came out to San Francisco from Washington D.C. for a couple of days a couple dozen years ago, with “a guitar, an amp, a sleeping bag and a few clothes” and figures he was playing The Saloon on Grant Avenue within a year or so. Since then, he’s played every imaginable venue in town, and for years now has held down weekly gigs at The Saloon, Tupelo and Belle Cora.

We’re pleased to lure him out to Glen Park Sunday evening for a couple of sets.

Help us pay the trio! We’ve set the hurdle high, and rely on you to stake us to their guarantee. If you’re broke, don’t worry, just come and enjoy the music. But if you’re doing ok, $20 is the cover charge. Somewhere in between? There’s a sliding scale. Somewhere over the top? Again, there’s a sliding scale.  $2 to $2,000, we’ve got a price point for everyone.  Don’t worry, we’ll spread the wealth.  Or weather the shortfall.  We’d prefer the former.

Thanks for supporting live music, the musicians that play it and the venues that present it.
