On Friday, March 24th, the Tony Johnson Quartet, with Bob Kenmotsu, Keith Saunders and Eric Markowitz, swings the blues from bebop to bossa 5:30-8pm.
But we’re not done at 8! The Dewayne Oakley Blues Ensemble kicks off a late Friday time slot in earnest, 9-10:30pm.
We don’t promise a late show every Friday, though we’ve got a tight little sequence planned for you from late March to mid-May, so turn out in force and show us it can work! Get on that social media and tell your friends “meet us at Bird & Beckett!”
Byob and a twenty for the band!
There’s more in store for you for the weekend, of course!
The Lost Trio (Phillip Greenlief, saxophone; Dan Seamans, bass and Tom Hassett, drums) digs in deep with guest trumpet player and composer Ian Carey on Saturday, March 25th from 7:30-9:30pm.
And on Sunday, March 26th, from 5-7pm, it’s our last-Sunday-of-the-month jazz jam session hosted by the perennially charming & always swingin’ Vince Lateano Trio (Ben Stolorow, piano; Peter Barshay, bass; Vince Lateano, drums). Whether you want to play or want to witness, get down to Bird & Beckett! Still plenty of time to hit the taqueria onÂ your way home…
This is not the time to leave town, though it might just be the right weekend for a visit from afar!
To get to Glen Park from Vince Lateano’s North Beach beat, take the T-Line from Chinatown’s Rose Pak Station (Stockton at Washington) down to Powell Street station and grab BART to Glen Park.
If you’re flying in from San Diego or Switzerland, grab BART from SFO!
Either way, it’sÂ a cinch that you’ll find great music and books at Bird & Beckett!
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...

Gigging musicians! You have nothing to lose but your lack of a collective voice to achieve fair wages for your work!
The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
