SFJAZZ Hotplate in the Joe Henderson Lab

SFJAZZ Hotplate is a monthly concert series at the Joe Henderson Lab featuring Bay Area’s most gifted musicians re-imagining a famous recording of a jazz legend. The 2nd Thursday of every month, Hotplate aims to show another side of SFJAZZ, an informal setting where you can drop in for a drink and hear some of the best jazz the local scene has to offer. Make sure to show up early for each set as DJ Pat Les Stache spins some of the legend's best-known tracks before the live music begins. This is a seriously fun jazz hang and the joint is always packed!
