The Back Room
1984 Bonita Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704
On Saturday March 17th at The Back Room in Berkeley pianist William Beatty will begin the show with selections from his recently recorded cd, titled 'The Path of Green Stones', and a piece or two just off the presses. The Cd features the remarkable player and composer Aaron Germain on bass, Deszon Claiborne, percussion par excellence on drums. Recorded at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Back in the early 1990's The Pasand Lounge on Union St in San Francisco and their location in Berkeley featured live music every night. The Countdown Band rotated weeks between the venues with two other house bands, backing the premier vocalists of the Bay Area. Lloyd Williams and Countdown performed for capacity audiences of listeners and dancers, honing a very tight sound over their years together.
