Re: “A New Bird at Birdland

Great article! I had the chance to meet Dayna at only a few shows in SF over a span of months but like you said he remembers real-life names and faces and is one of the nicest folks you'd ever meet. (And yes, he's a brilliant musician as well!) It seems only appropriate that a venue like Birdland would host such a wonderful musician and kind individual. Birdland achieves what many venues (not just here in the Bay Area, but in other major cities) only strive to do. It provides an affordable and accessible, safe haven for folks to come together, meet and share ideas, conversation, laughs, etc. while at the same time showcasing some of the best talent the Bay Area has to offer (and feeding your belly with yummy food!). As both a musician who's performed there and an attendee of its private events, it's my experience that nobody is ever turned away -- anyone can become a member. Michael does his best to accommodate and provide. In these recent times of days filled with stress and worry, it's a much welcomed change as Birdland delivers by providing a place to suspend reality for a moment -- and just enjoy life. This venue is transformative in every sense and hope it sticks around for a long time. I hope people continue to support it so that it can act as a model for others to replicate and experience transformation in their own community as well.
