Bird & Beckett’s Canyon Moonlight Music series closes out 2015 and sets the stage for the Christmas and the new year with Eric Shifrin and the In Crowd.   Eric is a San Francisco institution by now… though the Ellis Act is messing with his act.  We’re harboring him just as long as he can hang on, but catch him now before he splits for Japan or who-knows-where.

Eric’s swinging little combo, Eric & the In Crowd, dates back to the early 1990s.  With Jeff Sanford on reeds, Bing Nathan on bass and Randy Odell on drums, the In Crowd will take you on a marvelous tour of classic tunes, from rags by Jelly Roll Morton through Tin Pan Alley classics to Meade Lux Lewis boogie woogie to lonesome songs of the open range…
