Don Prell’s SeaBop Ensemble
plays jazz in the bookshop

Bassist Prell got his start in L.A. in the 1950s, traveling for several years as a member of the Bud Shank Quartet. He’s been a cornerstone of the Bird & Beckett Friday night jazz series since its inception in 2002, and leads a group here on the first Friday of each month.

San Francisco’s longest running weekly jazz party is well into its 15th year and shows no signs of flagging! We’ve never skipped a single Friday since October 2002, when it all started as neighborhood tenor sax player Chuck Peterson roped Don Prell, guitarist Scott Foster and an ever expanding network of players into making the Bird & Beckett jazz scene happen. Since then, it’s grown like Topsy. Wasn’t God what made this happen, just folks showing up to play and folks showing up to enjoy what they do!
That said, God helps the child that’s got her own, so BYOB! Want to make some new friends? Bring something to share… It’s been done before, and has been scientifically shown to work! And do keep your faith in science, folks. We’re gonna need it when the next ice shelf breaks loose.
