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

Saturday, September 15th – 7:30-10:00 pm
The Jazz Philanthropists Union presents…
The Jelani Banfield Quartet
jazz club! when lights are low…

$20 cover charge.
$10 for students / musicians /
low income.

Jason Hayashi – tenor saxophone
ndrew Weitz – piano
Jelani Banfield – bass
Ryan Higley – drum

Jelani Banfield is a formidable voice on bass already at the age of 20… Now a bona fide veteran (i.e., a sophomore) in Sam Clam’s Disco and its “Jazz, Roots & American Music” Bachelor’s of Music program, he’ll bring three equally young confederates from SFCM to constitute a jazz quartet for your pleasure.

Given that the musicians tonight are under the age of 21, please don’t BYOB tonight. Thanks! We have juices and bubbly water on hand for you, and complimentary food for all at the break, from Glen Park’s own Cheese Boutique across the street from the bookshop.
