    Patrick Wolff is a saxophone and clarinet player rooted in the bebop tradition, with a long history in the New York City jazz scene. He has worked with Matt Wilson, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Peter Bernstein, Grant Stewart, Josh Roseman, and many other jazz greats. Since moving to San Francisco in 2009, Wolff has appeared regularly with Marcus Shelby, Adam Shulman, and Diana Gameros. With four albums released under his name, he is making his mark as a bandleader with a sextet playing his original compositions, and with a classic jazz quartet focused on obscure and forgotten repertoire. http://patrickwolffmusic.com/
     
    Guitarist André Matos presents a trio featuring two of his favorite improvisers, the bassist Thomas Morgan and drummer Billy Mintz. New York based and Portuguese native, André Matos has been involved in a wide range of projects in the city and abroad. www.andrematosmusic.com
     
    Among the San Francisco Bay Area’s bustling music scene is singer-guitarist- social activist Diana Gameros, an artist who’s quickly caught the attention of national media as well as acclaimed musicians (i.e. La Santa Cecilia, Natalie Lafourcade, Bebel Gilberto, Taylor Mac, San Francisco Symphony) who’ve been drawn to her singular music and intrigued by her life story. From the age of 13, Gameros has resided in the United States, and for much of that time, she’s been an undocumented immigrant. Now with legal status through a work permit and a green card on the way, Gameros writes a love letter to her homeland with 13 standout renditions of classic Mexican songs on her latest album, Arrullo, in anticipation of soon returning to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. Gameros independently releases her sophomore album, Arrullo, on November 10, 2017. https://www.dianagameros.com/

    Rachelle Garniez // Serena Jost Jan 7

    7:30 $10.00 suggested donation

Her album, A Bird Will Sing, was produced by Anton Fier, and her forthcoming solo cello and voice album, Up To The Sky, will be released in April 2018. Tonight she is joined by her band, Julian Maile (guitar), Rob Jost (bass) and Robert DiPietro (drums).

     

    Native New Yorker, genre-fluid multi-instrumentalist, performer and songwriter Rachelle Garniez is known as a "master of surprise" Entertainment Weekly and a "certified free spirit" The New Yorker.  At once optimistic and dark, accompanied by bassist Derek Nievergelt and violist Karen Waltuch,her tragicomic story-songs intermix with sonic and lyric improvisation creating a world of sweet wreckage.

    Rupe Shearns * To A Deer Outside Ithaca* release show Jan 13

    7:30 doors $15.00 adv/$18.00 at door

    https://venuepilot.co/events/15552/orders/new

     
    A decade after releasing his first album with Earl Greyhound, singer and guitar player Matt Whyte, now known as Rupe Shearns, released his first collection of original music on 10/20/17. The album was 4 years in the making and prominently features members of Grizzly Bear and Inara George from The Bird and The Bee. A distinct departure from Earl Greyhound’s pared down and aggressive brand of rock, Rupe Shearns’ music is decidedly more layered and varied from song to song; at its most gentle paying subtle tribute to Pink Floyd’s “Meddle”, and at its loudest, drawing more overtly from Joe Jackson’s “Stepping Out”.

    In the intervening years between Earl Greyhound and Rupe Shearns, Matt has been working as a composer and producer out of Greenpoint, Brooklyn and touring as multi instrumentalist and singer with Joan as Policewoman. In addition, Matt performs samba and Bossa Nova music in Portuguese every other week in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
