Live Music: Mason Razavi Quartet Friday November 28th @ 7pm

San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM and San Jose Jazz for a live performance with the Mason Razavi Quartet on Friday, November 28th, 2014 @ 7:00pm in the Market Garage.

The melding of rock beginnings with a devout love for classical guitar has formed the unique sound of Mason Razavi. Starting as a self-taught rock guitarist, Razavi devoted his life to the classical guitar after hearing the music of Andres Segovia at age 22. During this period Mason wrote all of the music that would form his jazz-influenced classical guitar album People, Places, and Monsters. He has since returned to jazz and the electric guitar, and his newest release Quartet Plus features originals from the perspective of a jazz quartet and nonet. Though first and foremost a jazz guitarist/composer, his diverse background has led him to play in a variety of settings ranging from rock bands to accompanying concert choirs, backing up jazz singers, and as a classical soloist. Mason holds a M.A. in Jazz Studies from San Jose State University and a B.M. from the Berklee College of Music where he studied jazz composition and majored in Contemporary Writing and Production, and  has performed at the Wilshire Ebell Theater, Paradise Rock Club, and on stage at the San Jose Repertory Theater as well as countless gigs as a sideman and leader of his own groups.

San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM and San Jose Jazz for a live performance with Legally Blue on Friday, November 14th, 2014 @ 7:00pm in the market garage.

Formed in 2010, the group brings together 5 talented musicians from Northern California: Joanne Wegener, John Keating, Mike West, Chris Wilder, and Aart de Geus. Alone, each member has performed in different groups, in different states and, even in different nations; but together they are joined by their love of music and the Blues. Mixing original and classic Blues standards with their own surprises, Legally Blue creates a nostalgic sound that’s impossible to “sit still” to.

San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM for a live performance with the Honey Wilders on Saturday, November 8th, 2014 @ 8:00pm in the market garage.

"Knock-out 70s-style boogie rock" -Guitar Player Magazine

The Honey Wilders' brand of boogie is undeniably 70s-flavored, recalling the era of big hooks and big guitars before all the big hair. Their refreshing sonic cocktail is something like one part Exile on Main Street and Damn the Torpedoes, with a splash of In Color, served up Live and Dangerous. Strongly recommended for rockers and power-poppers who like to get down and get with it.
