acoustics and furniture. The venue does have a dress code, so check that out first before you show up in
sneakers, shorts, a t-shirt, and a ball cap.
This show will feature totally improvised music. Show up and see what happens. The Impulse Room has been doing these for a while. Rising young vibraphonist / drummer Dillon Vado will be on it, Alex Agius is on keyboards, and trumpeter Rob Dehlinger is also on it.

I'll quote Sven - "A wonderful opportunity and venue
to bring you the sights & sounds of Sven & the Masterful Majestic
Orchestra, a 17 piece orchestra playing some
classic crooner standards in likes of Sinatra, Martin &
Bennett! In support we have San Francisco's own "Hot Pink Feathers" doing
their own version of timeless & sassy showgirl dance to
bring the mood definitely in the red zone! Also playing is Not Yetis who offer a
generous helping of a 60's esque groovy sound for all you to get
the evening rolling off to a plentiful start indeed. Dress code
is definitely encouraged so make it a great night for a date
Sven is a vocalist with a heavy metal background (!)
who has put together a swinging band with a lot of the great
Nelson Riddle, Billy May et al arrangements. He sings the
tunes really well, and he gets some great players. We did a very fun debut
show at the Bottom of the Hill in July.

Armando's is one of my
favorite venues both as a performer and as an audience
member. When I'm here, I feel I'm at home, whether I'm
playing or listening.
It's a surprisingly quick drive to Armando's from Berkeley / Oakland area - for one thing, parking's a snap. Downtown Martinez is also very cute, and the area is becoming more lively, with new bars and restaurants.
The band will be Kurt on bass and vocals, Greg Sankovich on
