Original show description below.

Bassist, bandleader, and SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director Marcus Shelby has graced our Family Matinee stages for over a decade, delighting audiences with his electrifying compositions and arrangements as well as his wealth of knowledge of our shared musical heritage. From roots music, to the powerful songs of freedom that shaped the civil rights movement, Shelby takes us on a journey of soulful discovery of the blues as we honor Black History Month.

Join Marcus Shelby and members of his band for the FREE interactive Family Workshop following the matinee performance, and get ready to sing, move and play! Note: This workshop is limited to a first come, first served basis. Sign up in the lobby before the start of the matinee.

Each one-hour matinee features live performance, audience participation, Q&A, and amazing music.
