FIRST FRIDAYS w/ STEVE LUCKY’S HAMMOND CHEESE COMBO 4.30-8.oo
Jump blues, swing, and rare gems inspired by the '30s, '40s and '50s, this Combo isn't your everyday organ combo sandwich. Some of the specials on our menu include tunes by the unrecognized organ genius Hank Marr, knockouts by Brother Jack McDuff, and lots of original pieces by Steve Lucky dripping with special sauce, and some extra cheese numbers sung by the captivating guitarist/vocalist Carmen Getit.

FLOWTILLA 2.oo - 5.oo
Flowtilla play a sophisticated blend of psychedelic world groove jazz-funk: “The group takes a theme or a rhythm and they run with it. The guitar soars along over drummer Jan Jackson and bassist Ellen Schoenwetter's driving grooves. Len, Ellen, and Jan all definitely have some serious playing ability.”

HIGH STANDARDS 2.oo - 5.oo
In addition to playing original material, High Standards draw from a constellation of different songs and genres, seamlessly blending the new with the old, the classics with the club bangers. This wild, unorthodox, and ostensibly reckless combination of genres is what makes High Standards so fresh, devastating, like a flamingo savagely consumed by lava from an exploding volcano!

MATT BERKELEY TRIO 2.oo - 5.oo
A fixture on the Bay Area music scene for years, Matt Berkeley has formed a new trio with Peter Canton (bass) and Michael Reed (drums). East Bay Sound System is the name of their studio: and a descriptor of their sound: local, gritty, and electric with respectful nod to elements of dub music. They’ve been known to “dub out” on anything from Elvis to OutKast.
