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

Thursday, August 4th & Sunday, August 28th – 7:30-10 pm
The Howard Alden Trio (8/4) & Duo (8/28)
$20 cover charge

Howard Peter Vince


Howard Alden is considered among the very best jazz guitarists in the nation, for good reason.

We’ve been fortunate to host Howard twice in the past, and welcome him again this August — first on Thursday, August 4th joined in a trio by bassist Peter Barshay and drummer Vince Lateano, and again near the end of the month on Sunday, August 28th in a duo with guitarist Duncan James.

This is the third time out for the trio with Howard, Peter and Vince — together they played two beautiful previous dates here at Bird & Beckett, first in January 2014 and again almost exactly a year ago in August 2015.

Click here to see more from the trio’s August 23, 2015 date at Bird & Beckett.

Cover charge $20.  No reservations, so please arrive early to be assured of a seat.

Here, you can view a lovely performance that gives you a taste of the artistry you can expect at Bird & Beckett.
