Re: “A New Bird at Birdland

Searching for a jazz venue without having to pay huge bucks can be a challenging and daunting task these days. Especially, with the recession taking place, leaving many without jobs or money. Places like Yoshi's can fetch upwards $100 and up, if you intend on bringing a date. Most jazz venues only seem to cater to those leaning on the more upper class. Most people that attend jazz venues come in brand new luxury cars, dressed in suits. And most jazz venues do not pay these musicians well, let alone, offer them food. What has the world come too? Those are very stereotypical for jazz venues, but there is one in the bay area that stands out of them all. This place is known to many as Birdland Jazz & BBQ (now Birdland Jazzista Social Club) located in Berkeley,Ca. Those in attendance ranges from homeless to doctors, lawyers, local musicians, millionaires, dogs, high school kids and more.... There is no where in the bay area where you can get great live jazz music from 8 p.m-5 a.m, with free food and B.Y.O.B., for a low fee of $10! Mike has truly formed a unique private social jazz club. This is not just a jazz club, its a place where people can come and socialize, mingle and meet new people. There is a hookah club in the backyard where people can relax, chill and have a conversation. Birdland brings the community together from all type of species and neighbors together. I consider this place my second home and would be devastated to see in go.
