('.') Jupiter 10th Anniversary Show w/Joe Cohen!

May 2, 2015 marks 10 years of playing at Jupiter in Berkeley. Since our first gig there on May 6, 2005, Jupiter has served as our home court where we have nutured our "jazz nerd jam band" sound. For this 10th Anniversary show, we will be joined by Joe Cohen on saxophone. Joe is a founding member of the Bay Area's Jazz Mafia, and is one of the most notorious horn players around. Don't miss this treat! Come help us celebrate 10 years and over thirty shows at our favorite venue!

In addition to being the guitarist for two of Modern Drummers top five drummers of all time (Zigaboo Modeliste, Narada Michael Walden), Matthew's cutting edge guitar blazes with the art-rock band MoeTar and has played on hundreds of San Francisco Bay Area releases.
