Stay tuned for the next B&B benefit party in Jerry Ferraz's backyard! Here's some video of the last one!

Sherri and David

Sunday, May 17th – 7:00 pm
vocalist Sherri Roberts and pianist David Udolf
a jazz live stream from Bird & Beckett

 

Vocalist Sherri Roberts and pianist David Udolf are collaborators in music and life and household chores, including much dog walking. Incidentally, they’re wonderful musicians, both! They’ll present an evening of jazz standards, familiar and surprising, charming and impeccably performed. Settle in for a cozy hour of lovely music.

Sherri has several albums to her credit, supported by tremendous jazz colleagues from both coasts. David is a top-flight pianist, arranger and musical director who works with such major talents as Mary Stallings, Denise Perrier, Jules Broussard and many more.

Note the 7pm start, for David & Sherri’s East Coast fans, friends and colleagues…

The first $400 goes to Sherri & David (that’s our guarantee to them), the next $100 goes to the organization, and any donations beyond that go to them. If you love them, help them out! If you just think musicians shouldn’t work for peanuts, then have the courage of your convictions… and help them out!

It’s all crucial if we want to keep our treasured musicians healthy, vital and productive.

"It is in doubt and not in faith that the salvation of the world is to be found. Faith is a delusion and a snare: a pitfall, a prison. It intimidates the intellect. With fear of eternal damnation religion crushes intellectual activity; with hero worship it destroys individuality; with hopes for the beyond it prevents the growth of ideals for the present. It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."

-- Job Harriman, 1902
