June 10 dinner/concert with Barre Phillips and Mark Dresser!

Sold out but taking a waiting list

Friday, June 10, 2011

Loft in Oakland
Limited seating for 19

We are so honored to have Mark Dresser return for the 4th time on the series. And this time, we are absolutely thrilled as he will be joined by another of my very favorite musicians, Barre Phillips!! Barre is native to the bay area but has lived in France since the 1960's thus rarely performs in California. This is a very unique and special occasion; arguably 2 of the most important bass players of each of their generations in an intimate space in a very rare duet contexts.

cold infused sakura karigane will be served through the evening, a
delightful Karigane tea infused with cherry blossom. We source this tea from Proceeds  of this tea are used to help feed people in the areas in Japan hit hardest by recent earthquakes and tsunami.
