Saturday, May 4th – 7:30–10:00 pm
Francis Vanek Quartet
jazz club! when lights are low…
every Saturday night

Francis Vanek, saxophone
Terry Rodriguez, piano
Chris Amberger, bass
Mike Quigg, drums

Francis is a legend of the North Coast. His quartet this afternoon will be right in sync. He and Terry and Chris go back quite aways. Mike’s a young drummer whose reputation is rock solid in this town and he’s crossed the Bird & Beckett bandstand to great effect several times in the past couple of years. This is jazz.

If you were here last Saturday night, you heard Francis in Grant Levin’s quartet.

Come out and hear what Francis has in mind for you tonight.

$20 cover, like most Saturday nights. BYOB, you’ll save some money there.

Fits nicely in an invitation envelope for mailing. Fits in a pocket as well.

~~ Poetry as philosophy to plumb the deeper truths of these times ~~

$15 and worth every penny
