Thanks & Save the Date!

Thanks to all who made SBS’s Spring Season a big success.
We extend much gratitude to our diehard jazz fans, and to the
11 musicians who made up the 2 bands. Amazing players from
4 continents, ranging in age from 24 to 91 years old!

Save the Date:

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

More details soon, but meantime save the date of Monday,
November 2, 2015 at NYC’s Symphony Space, as a special
friend from New Orleans returns to lead an autumn concert.
Watch this space for further news!

The Sidney Bechet Society, Ltd.® was formed in July of 1997. Its charter is to promote the music inspired by Sidney Bechet. Our first jazz concert featuring Bob Wilber and Benny Waters, was named Concert of the Year by Joe Klee in the Mississippi Rag for the year 1997. The same honor was extended to our jazz concert in 1998 and 2001. We continue to present some of New York’s highest quality traditional jazz, once again returning to Peter Norton Symphony Space, at 95th & Broadway in NYC, with four top notch shows.
