Ramble with Jeff Berkley

Jeff Berkley will be joining the North Bay All-Stars for the Wednesday Night Ramble at the Empress Theatre. Jeff’s musical foundation was built by songwriting and playing drums in alternative rock bands. He discovered the West African djembe and by adding cymbals, Berkley created a bare-handed style of percussion that has become uniquely his own and highly regarded. He helped define the sound of the Joel Rafael Band, of which he’s a founding member, and has played with Jackson Browne, Ben Harper, and David Crosby among others. His skills on the guitar developed as well and he is well-known for his stylish riffs. Playing with some of the best singer-songwriters has not been lost on Berkley, who’s own ability to put pen to paper earned him a New Folk Songwriter Award in 1999 from the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival, an honor shared by Lyle Lovett, Shawn Colvin and Lucinda Williams. The All-Stars are Don Bassey on bass and vocals, Mike Emerson on keyboards, Matt Silva on guitar, Kevin Frazier on saxophone and vocals, and T Moran on drums. Arrive early and enjoy happy hour prices on all beer, wine and cocktails.

Ticket Price: $9.00 – Happy Hour 6pm to 7pm
