- Event Details
- When they enrolled in Band Workshops, many Blue Bear School of Music students wondered what it's like to actually play in a band. They'll find out first-hand when they take the stage at Cafe Du Nord at the Blue Bear Showcases. Blue Bear Band Workshops are student bands that are organized by the school and feature adult musicians ranging in age from early 20s to late 40s. They rehearse with a professional musician who coaches the band in group playing and arrangement. For 10 weeks the aspiring musicians rehearse a set which they then perform live in a San Francisco club at the end of the class session. The shows are always lively, and proceeds help support Blue Bear's nonprofit mission to make music education fun and affordable for anyone who is motivated to play or sing or craft a song. Once again, Blue Bear is very pleased to host its quarterly Band Showcases at Cafe Du Nord. Many nationally renowned artists play at this landmark San Francisco venue, so these showcases are an especially wonderful performance opportunity for the school's students - some of whom will be playing onstage for the first time. During the three-night run, student bands ranging from rock and blues to jazz to soul and R&B to pop will perform on the Main Stage. Blue Bear's Executive Director and Program Director, along with several Blue Bear Board members, are among those performing with the student bands. All ages are welcome and Cafe Du Nord offers a full menu, so bring your family and friends for three fun-filled evenings of music, dinner, drinks and dancing!
