Berkeley Arts Festival Calendar



Fresh off their tribute to the Meters at sold-out shows at SFJAZZ, Mo'Fone returns to its core saxes-and-drums trio format to thrill listeners with its inexorably funky grooves, jazzy playfulness and creative original compositions. The award-winning trio has been featured multiple times at the Monterey & SFJAZZ Festivals, and their three albums have received a slew of rave reviews. "A minimal but mighty romp!" - East Bay Express "If Mo'Fone doesn't blow your socks off, you're not paying attention." - "One of the hottest bands to surface in a long while." - "Like a furious detachment of the Tower of Power horns." "My favorite album of the year by far." - Contra Costa Times "Snaps and crackles like James Brown's Famous Flames mixed with a New Orleans second line."

Sep 6, 8pm to 10pm, The Back Room Music, 1984 Bonita Ave, Berkeley
