As Karl the Fog moves over the lake and covers a slew of colorful boats, we’ll sit inside our intimate and improvised concert venue where the music of the best musicians in the Bay Area and a glass of beer or wine will be the perfect way to unwind your week. By attending this event not only you’ll listen and learn jazz from some of the best musicians in The Bay Area but also, you'll be actively supporting the local art scene and its musicians. Kudos!
Every week (Fridays & Saturdays) we feature new bands and it's a secret, so you won't know who is performing in advance. This makes each concert unique and fresh. All things Jazz, from 1920's Swing to Latin Jazz, Funk, Fusion, Hip Hop and original compositions. This concert series is produced by Mellow Sessions.

Located in the heart of SF's famous Golden Gate Park, there’s a lovely boathouse known mostly to locals. Every Friday we transform this space into a non-conventional intimate music venue. Nearby you can start off your evening by visiting the best Gold Gate Park has to offer.
