Jonathan Poso: Tuesday, November 27th @ 6:00pm
Jonathan Poso is a classically trained pianist who began his training at age ten. He received two scholarships for piano performance to further his musical education in college. Since then he has played at multiple venues around the Bay Area including Maggiano’s, LB Steak, The Fairmont Hotel, private events and Cafe Stritch. His style is a blend of classically influenced renditions of current songs, jazz themes and classic rock.
Steve Marley: Wednesday, November 28th @ 6:00pm
I started fooling around with drums at age 11 and by the age of 15 was playing and recording with rock bands in the SF Bay Area. My first recordings were made with a folk rock duo - Pat n' Al - at the old Coast Recording Studios in downtown San Francisco and Columbia "B" in Hollywood. This was fairly heady stuff for a fifteen year old from San Jose, CA.
A couple of years (and a couple of bands) later, I was playing with Teddy & His Patches, who recorded the legendary "garage psychedelic" tune Suzy Creamcheese.
Lisa Lindsley: Thursday, November 29th @ 6:00pm
She has been called a glass of champagne, cool, refreshing, and a little bubbly.
Lisa Lindsley may be a latecomer to singing jazz, but the wealth of creative experience she brings to American Songbook gems turns familiar tunes into bracingly contemporary tales. She made an impressive debut with Everytime We Say Goodbye; her 2016 release, Long After Midnight, charted for three weeks on the U.S. FMQB Top 40, and remained in the Top 5 slot for 7 weeks on the CMJ Jazz charts. And now Wouldn't It Be Loverly sits at #27 on the FMQB charts! Let's make it climb.
Math Class Band: Friday, November 30th @ 6:00pm
The band Math Class is an act that strives to bring back the big show aspect that has been lacking within the working band circuit for years. With the drive and excitement of new and retro rock tunes that have been amped up to create a smiling audience, Math Class is a band that will start and accentuate any party.
Johnny Neri: Friday, November 30th @ 9:00pm
Johnny Neri is a high energy Rock and Roll band that plays the greatest Rock and Roll songs ever recorded. They perform popular, vintage, classic rock songs from the 60s through the 90s. Since its inception in 2010, The Johnny Neri Band has rapidly grown in popularity after exploding on the music scene. Incredible three part harmony from amazing musicians who each play many instruments.
Johnny is incredibly entertaining, energetic and thrives on making people happy. Each one of Johnny’s shows is a powerful and emotional journey. His passion for his music and his art shines through in the magic, intimacy and nostalgia felt by the audience.
