Early Jazz, Bebop, & Swing: John Brothers Piano Co.


SFJAZZ Early Jazz, Bebop, & Swing: John Brothers Piano Co.

A rambunctious blend of ragtime, blues, stride, and swing, the Bay Area's John Brothers Piano Company brings "a throwback sound that evokes the honky-tonk ghosts of Barbary Coast" (San Francisco Chronicle). Formed by a pair of former Cal Berkeley students who shared a love of early jazz and barroom blues, the band began as humbly and seemingly incongruously as possible, with the pair dragging their battered Wurlitzer spinet around to busk on street corers and in BART stations around San Francisco and the East Bay. 

While retaining the heart and spirit of a guerilla street band, they've performed on stages around the country including the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Warfield, and Bimbo's 365 Club.
