Five jazz events will take place in the early part of mid-August, in particular on the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth of that month.
August 10th: The upcoming three days with five jazz events will begin with a Jazz at Inklings concert at the Inklings Event Room at 7 PM on August 10th. The performers will be the Tri-Valley Jazz Trio and return guest saxophonist Guido Fazio. Fazio is a San Ramon-based tenor saxophonist who also plays the flute and will probably be playing both saxophone and flute during the August 10th Inklings concert. He'll be playing modern jazz and soul jazz with the Trio, who include bassist Matt Finders, pianist James Hall, and drummer Kelly Fasman. You can reserve a seat for the concert on jazzatinklings.com, on Meetup, or on Eventbrite. Inklings Event Room is in downtown Pleasanton.
By the way, there are also two other Jazz at Inklings concerts approaching: one on August 24th with Andrew Speight and the Tri-Valley Jazz Trio and another in September with Benny Torres and the Trio.
Also on August 10th, Eric Eckstein will play a mixture of genres at Cellar Door, starting at 8 PM. Cellar Door is also in downtown Pleasanton, but is located on Railroad Avenue while Inklings is on Pleasanton's Main Street.
August 11th: There is one jazz event on August 11th, Karen Marguth at Main Street Brewery. According to the Main Street Brewery's website, this performance will include the Moving Parts Band. Main Street Brewery is at the northern end of downtown Pleasanton.
August 12th: There are two jazz events on August 12th. The first of the two events to begin will be Matt Finders & Friends (which includes the Moving Parts Band), who will be at Retzlaff Vineyards from 1 - 4 PM. There will probably be a performance by Finders' Element 116 Youth Band during the first part of the three hours, with the regular Moving Parts Band performing from 2 - 4 PM. Retzlaff Vineyards are in the outer edges of Livermore, and the entrance to the winery can be accessed from Livermore Avenue (Tesla Road).
