Horns to Havana is supporting tonight’s music; representatives will make a short presentation and will gratefully accept donations for their valuable program.  Read more here about what they do.

No advance reservations for this evening’s music, sorry!  Please come early to claim a seat.  Doors open at 5pm.  $25 suggested donation, but any amount is appreciated.

We’ll need to adhere to our capacity limit of 49, for safety and comfort’s sake, and we do anticipate a full house.  Bird & Beckett is wheelchair accessible and can accommodate 40 people seated with another 9 standing.

We very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we look forward to this evening’s music!
