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

Friday, April 15 – 7:30pm
Scott Foster, guitar
with saxophonist Bruce Ackley
Pete Schmitt, bass; David Brandt, drums

Guitarist Scott Foster brings Bruce Ackley back to the stage with David Brandt on drums, and with the addition of Pete Schmitt on bass. They’ll be expanding on a trio foray into Ackley’s original compositions that began here in January 17th, in the winter of the year… a deep dive into Ackley’s fascinating musical mind.

Scott has been a cornerstone of the B&B jazz edifice from the start, 20 years and counting!

BYOB, a mask and $20 cash for the cover charge.

Live in the shop, of course, and also streamed on YouTube and Facebook.

If you view a substantial part of the evening online, please donate if you’re able. Your donations help us pay the musicians a fair wage, and also help to make the stream viable.

Many thanks to our many supporters who donate habitually and generously! New donors fill our sails as we forge on and are hugely appreciated! Together with those coming out in person and paying the cover charges, you make Bird & Beckett’s programming possible!
