Re: “A New Bird at Birdland

From its inception, Birdland Jazz and BBQ has always been a venue that was relevant to the needs of jazz artists in the Bay Area - AND also to the neighborhood where this "social club" was formed. As one of the members of Little Brown Brother, a group that performs at Birdland once a month, I have to say that this venue is unlike any other in that the emphasis is on the music and the community surrounding it - not how many beers you've sold at the end of the night. The diversity of acts and artists is also one you rarely see in a small venue. The enjoyment and participation of the audience there is remarkable - like a family having fun together. As a performing artist, it is important to feel respected and appreciated for what you do - and at Birdland this feeling never is in question. What you do there never becomes "background music" or "ambient noise" - it is considered art - that is relevant and necessary for the spiritual well-being of the artists and the audience. To the naysayers - I say "Leave Birdland alone - let it flourish and continue to serve the community!" This is how all clubs should be! Mabuhay ang Birdland Jazzista Social Club!
