A long-time veteran of the SF Jazz and Funk scene, pianist/keyboardist Bob Crawford kicks off the 2017 Jazzidency Series tonight! A native of Long Beach, Bob gained experience in various Bay Area ensembles, playing jazz, funk, Latin and Brazilian music and in 2001 was offered the keyboard chair in Michael Franti’s band Spearhead. Bob logged multiple tours throughout the U.S. and abroad. Also recently, Bob has served as the musical director for the Latin Kings Allstar band, and has worked with the fantastic Alayo Dance Company and the Stagebridge Theatre Group. For the Jazzidency, he’ll be focusing on his piano trio with weekly guests and surprises.
