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

Friday, October 22 – 7:30pm
Tony Johnson Quartet
live jazz in the bookshop
and in the stream
every Friday night

Drummer Tony Johnson leads a quartet on the 4th Friday of each month.

Tonight, it’s guaranteed fun with a lot of bop and all swingin’.

Jeff Burr’s on guitar, Matt Montgomery’s on bass — with Tony, that’s one sweet rhythm section. And out front, the sublime Bob Kenmotsu is on saxophone.

Come hear what small combo jazz is all about. Each of these musicians has great ears, great chops and a profound understanding of what makes this music cook.

$20 cash cover charge. BYOB, proof of vax, mask! Seating is limited. For reservations, call 415-586-3733. Doors open at 7:20pm.
