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

Sunday, April 16th – 4:30-6:30 pm
Ed Ivey Orchestra
a roots/country quartet
$10-15 suggested donation
which way west? Sunday concert series

Ed Ivey hit town in the punk era with the Rhythm Pigs out of Austin, Texas.
Now he’s a bandleader and padrone of the North Beach scene and its satellites…
as well as a booker, erstwhile club owner (50 Mason Social Club), jam session leader (Swig and the Lucky Horseshoe) and restauranteur (Soluna across from the Asian Art Museum), and all around favorite human person. Wonderful musician, too– did we mention?

The Ed Ivey Orchestra covers a lot of ground in a big little package!
Rootsy, bluesy, a little Tex Mex, a little Blue Note jazz…
Dylan, Hank Williams, Mexican songs, the occasional Nina Simone song…
and of course some Chicano vibe in the L.A. style.

Ed Ivey on guitar and vocals, Blake Ritterman on drums, Andrew Couttie on bass and Derek Fairchild on dobro.
