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

Sunday, Aug. 4th, 4:30-6:30 pm:
The Ruth Keady Quartet

which way west? Sunday concert series.
All ages welcome!
No cover charge, but your generous donations
make it possible for us to pay the musicians.

Sunday, August 4th – 4:30-6:30 pm: Vocalist Ruth Keady
with Madaline Duran, sax;
Keith Saunders, piano; Scott Chapek, bass.

Ruth Keady has a powerfully swinging way with jazz standards that’s gained her ample respect among some of the top jazz musicians on the San Francisco scene.  She’s joined on this date by Mad (Madaline) Duran, a superb tenor sax player particularly well known for her long musical partnership with her mate, guitarist Eddie Duran.  With or without Eddie, Mad can wail for hours without repeating a thought.  Also on the bandstand, pianist Keith Saunders, recently transplanted from New York and now a highly valued fixture on the scene, and Scott Chapek, whose association with Ruth goes back to the days when the legendary Vince Wallace held down a regular session at the bar called the Schooner down on Valencia Street.
