The Pamela Joy Quartet Plus One

Songs You’ll Probably Like

Praised for her warm, velvety sound, her cool, laid-back style, and her droll wit, jazz vocalist Pamela Joy has performed in the Bay Area's premier music venues, including The Plush Room, Jazz at Pearl’s, the Herbst Theatre, The Rrazz Room, the Sound Room, Feinstein’s and the Fillmore Jazz Festival.

Her CD I Thought About You, dubbed “a very fine debut album” by KCSM’s Jesse “Chuy” Varela, has been re-released in Japan, and her recordings have been included on five jazz compilations alongside tracks from the likes of Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan and Frank Sinatra.

For her Back Room debut, she will sing jazz standards and more, accompanied by a stellar combo: the very versatile, Grammy-nominated John R. Burr on piano, Bay Area favorite Dean Muench on bass, and the inimitable multi-instrumentalist/troublemaker Kelly Park on drums. And sitting in, just back from a 2-month gig at Quincy Jones’s jazz club in Dubai, the effervescent Jim Briggs on guitar. This is going to be fun.

Tickets are $15 and available in advance at the link below, or at the door the night of the show. Doors open one hour before show time. We accept cash only at the door (ATMs are nearby).

The Back Room is an all-ages, BYOB (for those 21+) space, dedicated to (mostly) acoustic music of all kinds. You are welcome to bring your own adult beverage with no additional corkage fee.
