BISS Supports Blue Bear School Of Music -Student Showcases & Elvin Bishop to Perform

At the end of every quarter, students in Blue Bear School of Music's Band Workshops perform live in a San Francisco club. It's an exciting culmination of the bands' 10 weeks of rehearsal and preparation, and we're excited to announce that this winter quarter's Blue Bear Band Showcases will be held at Cafe Du Nord, a cool subterranean club with classic decor and great sound. Many nationally renowned artists play at this landmark San Francisco venue, so it's an especially good performance opportunity for our students - some of whom will be playing live for the first time. Please join us and show support! Proceeds benefit Blue Bear's non-profit mission and the shows are always a fun time.
