Birds on stage

Bird bands will be playing at two upcoming music festivals here in the city:

Saturday, September 25 check out Mysturbia at the Kidaroo Music Festival at Little Marina Green.

Saturday, September 25 and Sunday, September 26 Bird takes over the Union Street Stage at the Polk Street Blues Festival both days from 10:00-11:30am. Mysturbia will be playing here, too, along with fellow Bird stalwarts Sputnik, The Empty Seas, Phresh, The White Caps, and the Mifs, as well as a couple of solo acts and our adult band.

Should be a great weekend of Bird-driven entertainment. Hope you can catch some of the performances!

Introducing Night Bird

We’ve got a new program for serious bands ages 13-18: Night Bird. In a 7-week session, you’ll do weekly recordings and learn promotion (including finding gig opportunities and making flyer/CD art) from pros as you work towards putting on a showcase-style show for a 30-50 member audience. Contact us for details.

Bird’s Monday night band is auditioning adults students for the Bi-monthly Jam session. This beginning/intermediate band stretches out and explores songs/music and rhythms from all over the the globe.

Please contact us for details about the band. A few of the songs they are currently working on are:
