The legacy band! Chuck Peterson put this unit together several years ago, as a fresh iteration in a direct line of evolution from the earliest days of Bird & Beckett’s Friday evening jazz party. What Chuck started in 2002 with a trio playing weekly has grown like Topsy, and spreads now over the entire weekend. No divine intervention necessary– the community makes it happen!
Now, the 230 Jones Street, Local 6 Literary Jazz Band sports a core line-up of Jerry Logas on baritone sax, clarinet and vocals; Ray Loeckle on tenor sax; Glen Deardorff on guitar; Dean Reilly on bass; and Tony Johnson on drums — swinginâ€™ and boppinâ€™ from 5:30 to 8:00 pm on the fourth Friday of every month. Chuck sits in on flute whenever he can be in town, though he retired up to Santa Rosa a couple years ago.
Bird & Beckett presents a broad cross section of San Francisco’s professional jazz community, up close and personal — 18 to 80, swing to bop to avant garde! Bring some dough for the band– there’s not a jazz musician in town that’s overpaid, as far as we know, and we take seriously our role in providing a good venue and guaranteed pay. We’re proud to attract a generous audience that values and supports the artists that make San Francisco one of world’s great cities.
Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
