Dr. Mwanza Furaha & Chocolate in Concert


It has been a year since Dr. Mwanza's last performance at The Back Room before relocating to Palm Springs, CA. That stands true for this performance as well, since she will be returning to Palm Springs August 1st. She is reuniting with her band Chocolate Medicine, so this will be a stellar event.

Dr. Mwanza will be singing some old and new arrangements from her short list of music (238 songs), which includes jazz, blues, R&B, R&R, pop, country, standards, musicals/theater, contemporary, gospel and maybe a song in Yiddish. She is playing with a vocal range of 4 ½ octaves, therefore; be prepared for a surprise or two and an extraordinary evening of music.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Children under 12 are free. Advance tickets are available at the link below, or you may purchase your tickets at the door the night of the show. Doors open one half 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. If you need more information or have any questions, please call us: #510-654-3808. Thank you for your support!
