Jazz in the Neighborhood works to “celebrate and invigorate the Bay Area’s rich musical jazz heritage by creating more opportunities for established local musicians to perform, mentor aspiring players, and share this great American art form with the community. Through collaboration with school music programs and adult big bands, the project enables top-caliber artists to push creative boundaries while helping developing musicians “learn on the bandstand” according to the great jazz tradition. Performances in neighborhood venues not only showcase our wealth of local talent, but also create regular destinations for people to enjoy rich cultural and social experiences where they live.” Check out jazzintheneighborhood.org.

Jose Najera & The Bernal Beats
Jose A. Najera is a local legendary saxophone & conga percussionist from Hobbs, New Mexico USA! He grew up playing music and baseball, and was scouted by the Cleveland Indians. However he went to War in Vietnam instead and did two tours in the Navy as a chef. After being stationed at Treasure Island in the late 1960’s through the 1970’s, he fell into the happening Latin Jazz scene in San Francisco. He played with Carlos Santana, Chaka Khan, Etta James, Sara Vaughn, George Duke, Bill Cortial, Babatunde Lee, Azteca, Unzamba, Zero, Thunder Bolt, Chuchito Valdes from Cuba, and currently plays with Harvey Mandel from Chicago. He started his own band called “Jose Najera & The Bernal Beat” from San Francisco’s Bernal Heights in the 1980’s. Jose and his wife Doris B. Ruiz still live on Mullen Ave. in Bernal heights, a thriving musical neighborhood. His son Eloy Cipriano Najera also known as Cipre (see-pree), is the piano vocalist in the band. Together they rock the nation and give back to the community!

Rusty Evans & Ring of Fire – The Worlds Finest Johnny Cash Tribute
Rockabilly Hall of Famer, Rusty Evans and his band Ring of Fire have been burning up the California festival circuit with his rollicking tribute to country music icon Johnny Cash.
With a voice of rolling thunder and a spirit like gentle rain Rusty has been wowing audiences from Nashville to San Francisco with his stunning tribute to the “Man In Black”. His weighted drawl doles out molasses-coated syllables, putting an upbeat spin on less than optimistic situations. Lending his own touch to world famous songs Rusty honors the Man in Black with soulful honesty and exuberance.
Driving rhythms on his amplified acoustic Martin guitar are augmented by his energetic three-piece band Ring of Fire. A hot rockin’ lead guitar, driving bass and drums create the powerful and irresistible Johnny Cash signature sound, a pulse that drives folks right to the dance floor. People often comment on how much Rusty actually looks like the Man in Black. He’s honored by the compliment and destined to continue in the spirit of the country music legend he holds in such high regard.
When asked how he first came to sing with such conviction the songs of Johnny Cash, Rusty replies, “I met the Man in Black in the 1960’s and was totally inspired, not to mention that Bob Dylan once told me long ago I sounded like Cash.”
