Kurt Ribak Quartet - original jazz
Drake's Dealership https://drinkdrakes.com/dealership/
2325 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612 (at 25th St.)
Support live jazz, local music, craft beer, and day drinking,
all in one place! Drake's Dealership is in the remnants
of a long-gone Dodge dealership, with much of it gutted for a
semi-outdoors setting. Lots of beers on tap, full
menu. This is our first time playing here - for many
years I've been playing at Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church
on Sunday mornings, but I've taken three Sundays off so I can
play jazz with my group.
This week will feature Lincoln Adler on
sax, Greg Sankovich
on keys and Scott
Foster on guitar. Many of you know Lincoln and
Greg from their gigs with my group, with the group Times 4,
and at the MVPC and FUMC concerts around Christmas. Both
are on my most recent record, 2018's "ONWARD."

& Beckett Books & Records 653 Chenery St San Francisco CA 94131 Concert presented by Bird & Beckett
and the Jazz
in the Neighborhood Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund. $10-$15 suggested donation, Kids free. Bird & Beckettis one of my favorite book stores
ever and has a heavy schedule of live music. The owner,Eric
is a big supporter of live music.
The band will be: Randy Odellon drums, Greg
keyboards, Lincoln Adler on sax, and Kurt on bass. Glen Park is a charming
neighborhood that still feels like San Francisco. It's close
to the Glen Park BART station, restaurants elegant (Le P'tit
Laurent) and simple (La Corneta Taqueria). There's also a
neighborhood bar (Glen Park Station).
This is an earlier show
- we'll be done at 8:00.
You can come after work, catch
the show, and go have dinner afterward. Even if you can't come to the
show, you should know about both Bird and Beckettand aboutJazz in the
Neighborhood, who underwrite shows by
working jazz musicians in the Bay Area.
Live music and a great bookstore - this is my idea
of a good time. Plus you can support musicians getting a
reasonable wage for their work, a fine bookstore, and a
nonprofit supporting Bay Area jazz musicians.

together. You can take BART if you want to party
responsibly - the Downtown Berkeley stop is right across the
