Celebrate Jazz at the Club with Octobop and Roberta Donnay

Musical performance: Octobop
Guest vocalist: Roberta Donnay

April is jazz appreciation month. Come out and enjoy an evening of live jazz with the Bay Area's own Octobop and special guest vocalist Roberta Donnay.

Started as a musical experiment in 1999, Octobop has managed to thrive and continues to grow through today. Starting with the cool West Coast jazz from California in the 1950s and reaching out to do so much more, Octobop brings you jazz that is listenable, accessible, and at times, humorous.

Join us for a night of great jazz music and good company at the Club!
