Well, not *exactly*....
Northern California list mates, lend me your ears!
The Crescent Katz play at Clark's Corner restaurant on 57th and J street in
Sacramento every FIRST SATURDAY of the month. This is the former location
of the Original Shakey's Pizza. Clark's Corner is proud to host "Shakey's
Night", featuring pizza and beer specials in addition to their regular
classic American cooking and creative pub fare.
The band consists of: Brandon Au (ldr, tbn) Jeff Kreis (tpt) Greg Sabin
(bj) Priscilla Orneleas (tba) and Patrick Skiffington (wb). All of them are
alumni of STJS's jazz camp and also current counselors at Sly Park! The
band has been fortunate to have Burt Wilson, the leader of The Silver
Dollar Jazz Band; the FIRST band to ever play at Shakey's sit in with them
occasionally! They play a hot mix of dixieland and old-time jazz for at
least 2 sets starting at 8pm, and guest players are always dropping by to
sit in. This is THE place to hear great OKOM in Northern California.
Come on out and enjoy yourself under the original Shakey's stained-glass
window while you enjoy great food and even better music
