Oop Bop Sh’Bam
jazz in the bookshop
every Friday since October 2002

San Francisco’s longest running jazz party celebrates its 15th anniversary this month! What started with the Chuck Peterson Trio in October of 2002 continues without cease! Never a missed Friday since the beginning! Mark your calendar now for the fourth Friday of October, when Chuck will join the 230 Jones Street Band! But, first, come out tonight, for Oop Bop Sh’Bam:

Al Molina, trumpet

Dean Reilly, bass
Vince Lateano, drums

Come out and help us celebrate! But remember, it’s BYOB at B&B since the State in its infinite wisdom cracked down!
