BLUEGRASS EXRAVAGANZA WITH

JOHN REISCHMAN

& the Jaybirds

 

BUY TICKETS HERE

 

We are super-excited to present one of the best Bluegrass bands anywhere! John Reischman and the Jaybirds are a top-flight band delivering a truly fresh blend of original songs and instrumentals, old-time heritage, and bluegrass power. Bluegrass Unlimited magazine describes tone-master and composer John as “one of the world's undisputed masters” of the mandolin, a frequent accolade since his days with the Tony Rice Unit and California's Good Ol' Persons.

 

Watch the Jaybirds on YouTube.

 

“Though Reischman is the leader and front man, he gives each of them plenty of room to shine, and together they produce music that is seamlessly excellent and rewarding,” Sing Out! magazine says of the superb West Coast ensemble led by John from Vancouver, B.C. “The folks he's playing with are neck and neck with him all the way,” Victory Review magazine says of the line-up: John on mandolin, Patrick Sauber on guitar, Trisha Gagnon on bass, Nick Hornbuckle on banjo, and Greg Spatz on fiddle.

 

As FolkWax says, John Reischman and the Jaybirds offer “clarity, energy, good ensemble work, classy originals, and an adventurous approach” to the world of bluegrass and folk music — along with engaging stage humour in powerful live shows. They are what SingOut! calls “ thoroughly professional ensemble with a rare ability to produce music that is simultaneously traditional and contemporary . . . the Jaybirds are a band that continues to hit on all cylinders.”

 

TICKETS are $20 in advance, $24 at the door.

Concerts are held at the beautiful and historic First Methodist Church of Point Richmond, at 201 Martina Avenue in Point Richmond. Doors open at 7pm and show starts at 7:30.

About Point Richmond Acoustic
In our EIGHTH season,  Point Richmond Acoustic is sponsored by Point Richmond Music and the First Methodist Church. The church itself is intimate and an acoustic marvel. Built more than a century ago, it's an octagonal wooden prism that appears to be built by nautical carpenters. It’s like listening to music inside a guitar.

 

Our program is non-religious. A friendly no-pressure environment – it’s all about the music here! Ample parking is available downtown, just two blocks away.
