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

Saturday, March 20 – 7:30pm
Tammy Hall Trio
live streamed jazz
from the bookshop

Tammy Hall brings Gary Brown on bass and Deszon Claiborne for a classic piano trio date, covering material from the gospel tinged to the blues to pop and always landing in the sophisticated elegance of straight ahead jazz.

Catch the trio’s 90-minute performance on our facebook page or youtube channel

And do please help us pay the musicians with your donation via Paypal (to [email protected]), Venmo (@birdandbeckett) or the Cash app ($BirdBeckett). If those methods don’t do it for you, you can email us your pledge and drop by the shop with cash or a check.

It’s a time of too few gigs and too little gig income, so your support is crucial and very much appreciated.

$20 is nice, but pay what you can!
No one is ever turned away for lack of funds.

$2-20-200 sliding scale. Find your sweet spot!

Come an hour early, at 6:30 — using either of the links above — to catch a set Tammy will perform with vocalist Kim Nalley to raise funds for NEXT Village SF, a nonprofit organization that helps seniors in the Northeast corner of San Francisco, including North Beach, age comfortably in place. We hope to see the concept to come to Glen Park in the not so distant future, so tune in, check out the organization and give it some monetary support, if you’re of like mind.

Gigging musicians! You have nothing to lose but your lack of a collective voice to achieve fair wages for your work!
The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
