Jazz Jam with Kevin McCarthy in Shoreline

Bassist Kevin McCarthy's group hosts the Sunday Jazz jam at Darrell's Tavern in Shoreline. Darrell's is a comfortable tavern in the American tradition; friendly folks, plenty of room, pinball and pool for those who want to enjoy those things, good beer.

I have cross-posted this listing from the Seattle Jazz Scene meetup both as a way of encouraging our members to join their meetup and also to make folks aware of this high-end jam session. By all means, call Darrell's Tavern to make sure the event is on; I am posting but not necessarily able to go to this every week.

I played at this jam a couple times in 2013, and it was GREAT.  Kevin's 10-tet big band worked up a sweat for an hour, then they opened up the stage to the jam session, inviting 4-5 singers and several sax, trumpet, keyboard, bass, and drummers to the stage.  Kevin is a master at putting together great combos on the fly.  A must visit.

Please note Kevin is the guy running the show, but he's not promising duties beyond that.  Show up with your horn, buy a beer, and enjoy being part of the show!  Or show up without your horn, put $5 in the tip jar, and buy a beer anyway.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
