I know there are a few Bay Area folks around here, so I figured I'd throw this out there.
My jazz septet is playing at Rigger's Loft Winery in Point Richmond this Friday Eve, 6:00 - 9:00 pm. It's a cool spot right on the Bay. They have a few wineries that call this facility home, so there are...
"Thank you all for screaming for all our big hits!! Now we're going to play some tunes from our new album!"
(Crowd leaves for the rest room.)
FWIW - I play in a weirdo jazz band and we play 95% original material, and no one ever screamed.
