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

Saturday, January 30 – 7:30pm
The Noah Frank Quartet
jazz club, live streamed every Saturday
when lights are low

A 31st birthday blowout for an exceptional young trumpeter, composer & producer.

Isaac Schwartz on drums
Curtis Aikens on bass
Greg Jacobs on piano
Noah Frank on trumpet

Noah picked up the trumpet at age ten, spent five summers on the scene in NYC, busked for six months in Central Park in Manhattan and for seven months, as many as five days a week, in Golden Gate Park during the pandemic. And still he plays on. He’s barely getting started!

Come to our live stream prepared to donate to his cause! Consider it your cover charge for this Saturday night jazz club date, when lights are low! $20 is nice, but $2 to $200, it’s all good. When musicians’ work is consumed for free, their ability to stay in the profession is challenged. From each according to your ability…

Catch tonight’s trio show on YouTube or Facebook, or from the screen at the top of this webpage. But be aware the stream from here (the website) is a new thing and still a bit glitchy. If you run into any trouble at all (and you might!), you’ll find the stream going just fine on our YouTube channel or Facebook page right up to 9pm.

Do contribute to help us pay the band, if you’re not flat broke yourself! They have rent to pay and not nearly enough paying gigs these days. Donate generously here.  We’re guaranteeing $150 per musician in our live streams during this pandemic period and rely significantly on your donations at the shows to get there.

If you’re doing well in these times, share your good fortune with The City’s fine jazz musicians! They need your support, as do the venues that present the music.

The Independent Musicians Alliance

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.
