TJPA’s Salesforce Park – Main Plaza 425 Mission Street San Francisco, CA 94105  Fantastic swing band Radio Gatsby ~ 1920s Jazz – New Orleans Jazz – Latin Jazz

SAT 12/18 – 7-10pm – Audrey’s Big Boss Swing Band ~ Mac’s. 19 Broadway, Fairfax, beautiful prohibition upgrade. Audrey Moira Shimkas, well known as a jazz singer, woke one morning wanting more. More of that swing excitement. Knowing everyone in the biz, she called on pro pianist Ken Fishler, sax great Tony Malfatti, and drummer Gerry Kennett, and said “get over here”.

SAT 12/18 – 6-8pm – Eldon Brown Band ~ Jillie’s Wine Bar, Redhill Shop Center, San Anselmo. This band swings like they invented it. Original blues oriented with some boogie woogie/swing. Great singing and sax by Eldon and a killer repertoire that keeps us enthralled and dancing. Well, parking lot dancing / Outside. 

SAT – 12/18pm –  6-ishpm – Cocuzzi Courtet ~ Verdi Club Dinner Dance. 2424 Mariposa St, SF. Vintage jazz for dancing and everything else. The Cocuzzi Courtet plays the olde stuff, often with a xylophone vs saxophone duality. Verdi is the magic castle, the fave hot spot and lofty aspiration of any dancer, and those that barely touch the floor while transposing to Nirvana. Quiet during the pandemic, life awakes with their apparently monthly special dinner dance. It sells out early so live the dream now. Drinks at 6, dinner at 7, dance at 8. You can get a table for 8 for 375+, do the dinner and dance for 35+ each, or trot in for the dance only for $15. Ticket details here.
