Short bios of the staff of our retail bookshop (Bird & Beckett Books & Records, or “B&B”) and our allied nonprofit performing arts entity (Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project, or “BBCLP”) are presented below:

Angela Bennett, BBCLP Publicity, Booking, Documentation & Operations
Angie Bennett brings over 25 years of experience in the local music scene to Bird & Beckett. Although she’s been involved in the store in varying capacities since first discovering B&B’s live jazz in the fall of 2002, she was brought onboard in a more official capacity in July 2014 to handle the BBCLP’s publicity, to add depth and breadth to our music bookings, to develop our Saturday night “jazz club!” programming, and to aid in the BBCLP’s documentation and archiving functions. She has maintained our Facebook page for almost 10 years now. A skilled photographer, Angie shoots most of the pictures you’ll find here on our website and on our flyers. Although she tries to keep a fairly low profile in the store, you may have seen her performing around town with her band the Bad Mommies or marching with the Ukulele Resistance Brigade when duty calls.

Jerry Ferraz, BBCLP Poetry Series Coordinator


Jenna Littlejohn, B&B Asst. Manager/Operations; BBCLP Grants Coordinator
Jenna is the shop’s assistant manager. She’s the resident young person around here, our handy-dandy-millennial, seeing as everyone else is 50+ but don’t let the age change fool you – she’s wise as hell, and it’d do you well to get a book recommendation from her. Besides keeping the place “organized” she also works as the grants coordinator for our little thing you may have heard of, the BBCLP.
