CHET BAKER TRIBUTE
ONLINE TICKET SALES STOPPED – SOME TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR TONIGHT AT 7PM. – Dana Street Roasting Co. is proud to present another excellent Jazz experience for both young and old alike. John Worley (played with such touring bands as: Pete Escovedo Orchestra, Stanley Clarke Band, Wayne Shorter Sextet) brings his Mo-Chi Sextet back to the café with a show that is sure to raise the roof, like his previous tribute show at DSRC. John is a great trumpet teacher/educator who not only brings tremendous player’s chops, he adds to the show by giving background on his subject, making the listener appreciate the music that much more. It’s why the ticket pricing favors students of all ages. But we’ll let him tell you in his own words…
“Coming up in March is a very special event that I have wanted to present for some time now, Let’s Get Lost: John Worley and the Mo-Chi Sextet presents the music of Chet Baker. This upcoming concert will feature the music of the legendary trumpet playing treasure Chet Baker. Chet has and will always be one of my strongest musical influences instrumentally and vocally…
The Mo-Chi Quartet members Murray Low and Wally Schnalle will be joined by special guests vocalist Amy Dabalos, saxophonist Dave Deneau and bassist Nils Johnson formerly of the Ray Charles Big Band
This special event will be held at the Dana Street Roasting Co. in Mountain View on Sunday, March 2nd at 7:30pm.

Put together by The Ukulele Club of Silicon Valley (UCSV), this monthly good time has something for everyone of all ages to enjoy. In their words, “We are a fun group that welcomes all levels and encourages everyone. We have jammers without ukes that come to sing. We have mostly ukes; but, we have a couple of guitars and welcome all instruments and anyone who wants to have fun.” So come on down, whether you want to play or sing along…or just watch. It’s a truly uplifting time. See the article from the PA Weekly and MV Voice -
