But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Friday, March 31, April Fool’s Day & the Sunday hangover… Three (count ’em, only three!), ok, make that four Medium Huge Shows!
Jinx Jones Jazz Friday early, Charles Unger Jazz Friday late, Harvey Wainapel Jazz Saturday, Matthew Perifano Songwriter Sunday

Jinx Jones Jazz Trio – Friday 3/31/23, 5:30-8pm

Catch the Jinx Jones Jazz Trio at the Friday Happy Hour show, 5:30 to 8pm on Friday the 31st — and pick up a copy of his first jazz trio cd, magnificently recorded live at Bird & Beckett back when the thing was abornin’!

The Charles Unger Experience – Friday 3/31/23, 9-10:30pm

Then scoot over to La Corneta to grab a taco and get back to the shop by 9pm for the Charles Unger Experience!

~~~ BYOB and a twenty for the band,
and enjoy live music at Bird & Beckett! ~~~

The Harvey Wainapel Quartet – Saturday 4/1/23, 7:30-9:30

On Saturday, April Fool’s Day, at 7:30pm, you’ll hear the reed player & puppet master Harvey Wainapel’s quartet with Adam Shulman on piano, Doug Miller on bass and Bryan Bowman on drums playing Harvey’s originals and fresh arrangements of standards and songs that ought to be standards, plus some Brazilian spice!

Matthew Perifano & Friends – Sunday 4/2/23, 5-7pm

And Sunday, April 2nd at 5pm, stop foolin’ around and close out your weekend with a sampling from the Matthew Perifano songbook. From quirky undergrad college songs to collaborations with Shakespeare to a camp song that possibly saved the lives of dozens upon dozens of banana slugs to subsequent compositions that attempt to come up with an answer to what’s it all about?!!- Yes! it’s all here in sixty (or so) tuneful minutes with the able musical assistance of Joshua Raoul Brody and Amyellyn Kessler!
