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

Jeffrey Burr

This Friday, May Day, 5:30-8:00pm!

Jeffrey Burr, solo jazz guitar

Live streamed from your living room away from home, to your living room at home!

Come back, virtually, to Bird & Beckett!

Few are better suited to a solo outing than guitarist Jeffrey Burr. Widely acknowledged as among the very top jazz guitarists in the Bay Area, he ranks with the best anywhere in contemporary jazz.

Come to Bird & Beckett via our live stream this Friday evening, 5:30 to 8:00 pm for two sets of gorgeous music, and remember while you’re here to pay the cover charge unless you’re broke.

Should musicians play for free? We don’t think so, and we know that our patrons don’t think so either.
