Musical Bay Area seniors should dust off their saxes and drum sets and check out the scene at the Rockridge Music Center in Oakland. On Tuesdays from 1 to 2 they’re starting a geezer jazz band for anyone 60>. Bring your instrument and whatever experience you have. $27 per session.
A great geezer band that has been around for eons is Big Money in Jazz which just happens to be playing circa 1:15, Sunday May 15 at the 4th Street Jazz Festival in Berkeley. A salute to Louis Armstrong.Free
Get your knee replacements bouncing at a well-stocked local summer repertoire of geezer golden oldies – Elvis Costello and Buffalo Springfield at Oakland’s dazzlingly refurbished Fox, K.D.Laing at the Mondavi Winery and a really rich trove of where-are-they-now-stars at the Uptown Theater in Napa like Boz Scaggs, Brian Wilson and the Jefferson Starship.
