The Cottontails
We just saw them in July but they were so good and fun, I wanna see them again! Bird & Beckett presents The Cottontails; wail in a wide range of styles, from 20’/30’s Gatsby-era jazz, to classic 40’s swing, to vintage 50’s/60’s R&B. Second time this year for us but they've been playing in the Bay Area for many years: Club Deluxe, Great American Music Hall, Yoshi's SF/Oakland, jazz festivals in Northern CA, and many more to list. Karina DeNike, vocals Michael McIntosh, piano Sam Rocha, bass Randy Lee Odell, drums with guest Tom Griesser, saxophones Cover charge: $15-20 suggested donation at door, no advance ticket sales. You can bring a bottle of wine to share without being charged a corkage fee. Let's try Win Garden (, Chinese cuisine with good Yelp reviews. We'll do family style where we share dishes and cost. They can also seat a group over 6. Reminder: Meetup is a social organization, not an activity calendar. You're required to have a clear profile photo of yourself so we can recognize you.

What we're about

Meet other local fans of jazz & blues music while enjoying performances.

The San Francisco Bay Area is home to an amazing live music scene, with an assortment of venues that provide an intimate and affordable way to experience jazz, blues, and other genres of music as they're meant to be: spontaneous, inventive, and alive.

There's so much music happening in the Bay Area, there is something available every weekend for every taste and budget.

So join us, and use this Meetup group to connect with other music fans. We're mainly about listening to live jazz, but we also post blues shows, as well as tango, flamenco, world music, and cross-genre. In addition, we occasionally post theater events and films that have a music-related plotline or other "hook."

If you know about a show you'd like to see listed, feel free to suggest the event to Meetup organizers for hosting, or you can post the show on the "Discussions" page and invite your fellow Meetup members to attend with you.

Hope to see you at an upcoming show!
