Forgive me if I don’t have the words. Maybe I can sing it & you’ll understand.

Accompanying us for this project will be the poised and improvisational playing of songwriter, bassist, and bandleader, Casey Lipka, and her trio of musicians. TRADITIONS: Whisky & Jazz concert will be presented on May 20th at 5:00pm at Beatnik Studios (723 S Street; Sacramento, CA). Take a moment to enjoy life like your Grandparents or Great Grandparents used to through the smoky sounds of Jazz.
