Music calendar/bird song(event calendars are emailed to members)


“We don’t present music; we present life” Please note we are not a music venue. There are lots of great jazz, blues, and music venues in the bay area. But if you want to socialize and party to jazz and blues the way they did it in the early days in the 1940’s and 1950s, then you’re coming to the right place.

YOU MUST BE ON E-MAIL LIST TO GET PRIVATE INVITATIONS TO OUR MUSIC SCHEDULE. Otherwise, calendar for the week is posted on home page and KCSM 91.1 Jazz Calender
