The Cottontails have romped through vintage classics of the jazz age, swing era hits and 50s R&B without a care at jazz clubs, dance halls, cabarets and art events, at venues including SF City Hall, California Academy of Sciences, Bimbo’s 365 Club, Palace of Fine Arts, Amoeba Records, SF Legion of Honor, Yoshi’s SF/Oakland, San Francisco Maritime Museum, Cell Space, Great American Music Hall, and in clubs, concert series and jazz festivals in Northern California, New York City, Tokyo, England, and Germany, and they’re at the Club Deluxe every 3rd Friday.
