Live Music by Rob Reich Quintet

Rob Reich Quintet

6:30pm8:30pm

1915 was an exciting time for San Francisco as well as a pivotal point for American music. The Ragtime Era was just about to give way to the immense popularity of Jazz and Blues. Tin Pan Alley was in high gear, producing songs like "Hello, Frisco!" and "San Francisco (At That San-Fran-Pan-American Fair)".

For this concert, accordionist Rob Reich and his quintet will perform a collection of tunes from the time, rejuvenated with new whimsical arrangements and a good dose of freedom and improvisation.

Ben Goldberg - clarinets

Ila Cantor - guitar
