Family Matinee: Lemony Snicket & Marcus Shelby

Almost Sold Out

Lemony Snicket & Marcus Shelby

The irrepressible and slightly inappropriate Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) joins Bay Area bass legend Marcus Shelby and a star-studded jazz cast in an homage to the saxophone great John Coltrane. In a weekend filled with multiple tributes to Coltrane’s seminal works - including the spiritually-laden A Love Supreme - Snicket and crew dissect, deconstruct and reimagine the depth and artistry of a jazz master in a wacky and kid-friendly way. The December matinee at the SFJAZZ Center has quickly become one of the Bay Area’s go-to family events of the holiday season!
