Birdland Jazz Night

  • This location is shown only to members


Birdland is a jazz club that pops up by email invitation only (I can bring friends!) and is held in a long garage with a barbecue out front, in North Berkeley. It is BYOB and easily accessible by BART. Accomplished Bay Area jazz and blues musicians play there – it has an "after hours" vibe and very friendly.  There is a $10 donation to the musicians and guests this Friday are also asked to bring donation items for the Philippines.  More details plus directions will be provided to those who RSVP.  Updated time: 8:30.

    Thanks, all, for coming to hear the music and experience this Berkeley community happening with me. Thanks, much, for bringing donations also. I've never been there when the police came so it was a first for me, too, but at least we got to hear a good first set. We were jazzistas for a night. See you at a future event! John

    It was a very interesting and so Berkeley. The music was great. I just never went to an event where event got shot down by the police before. Guess, always first time. Overall, a great experience. :).

    Thank you John for organizing. Franny, was good seeing you.

    I wish that I had more than an hour of notice that I was escalated from the wait list. Thanks for organizing. Maybe I will have an opportunity to come next time!

    Thanks for giving us this excellent quintessential Berkeley experience, John! Had fun seeing all you guys! Best part was the police shutdown out the end. Oh, and I was fine driving home. lol

    On the way - probably get there around 9. My gf is a doctor so she may need to discreetly check her phone during the event as she's on call this evening.

      It's apparently a garage strung with lights directly across from North Berkeley BART on Sacramento

    Hi all. TIME UPDATE: I have learned that the band will start at 9:00. I will still plan to get there early but I think a better target meeting time would be 8:30. Sorry for the change but at least you have more time to get there. And it's even ok to be late--there's always a greeter at the sidewalk. I will provide more details on directions and the featured jazz group later tonight from my computer. Cheers, John
