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

Friday, November 26 – 7:30pm
New Squatoolas
Live & Live Streamed!

A fabulous band with an affinity for New Orleans–just the tonic you want and need in these times! Bounce back from your Thanksgiving indulgence, shake it down & rave it up in the company of good friends and companions!

Jim Peterson, saxophone
Scott Foster, guitar
Joe Kyle, Jr., bass
Larry Vann, drums

Can’t stir from the couch? We understand! But if you watch the show from there, we hope you’ll donate to sustain the musicians and the stream. Instructions are on the screen once you’ve found the show on our facebook page or youtube channel.

If you’re coming to the shop for the show, more’s the better! We’ll be happy to have your company to celebrate living, breathing culture! Jazz & it’s offshoots are the creation of African American musicians, composers, arrangers, dancers… We’re more than thankful that it’s at the base of American culture.

If you’ve called for a reservation (415-596-3733), you’ll want to arrive in time for the doors at 7:20pm.  At showtime we stow away the reservation list and give the seats out to those hoping to get in for the music. Please bring cash for the $20 cover charge, proof of vax and a mask… It’s BYOB at Bird & Beckett, so bring something to sip if you like!

The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
