Twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, pianist Grant Levin performs with a duo partner at Bird & Beckett, this time Pepe Jacobo.
Pepe Jacobo is one of the Bay Area’s top Afro-Cuban drummers and a first call percussionist. He writes and performs original music, on both guitar and percussion, with many Bay Area bands. He is a master of many genres of music reflected by the diversity of the groups he plays with including The Jorge Santana Band, Latin Funk band Mas Cabeza, Latin Jazz group CALIENTE 2000 and World Music group, Volcan.
Jacobo plays music in many styles but with a special emphasis in Afro-Cuban drum-set, Afro-Brazilian drum-set, Latin Jazz and Straight Ahead Jazz. Jacobo can “sit in” with any group easily mastering original charts. Jacobo is guaranteed to deliver a highly professional and swinging percussion section.
