Fresh off their tribute to the Meters at sold-out shows at SFJAZZ, Mo’Fone returns to its core saxes-and-drums trio format to thrill listeners with its inexorably funky grooves, jazzy playfulness and creative original compositions.

The award-winning trio has been featured multiple times at the Monterey & SFJAZZ Festivals, and their three albums have received a slew of rave reviews.

"A minimal but mighty romp!" - East Bay Express
"If Mo'Fone doesn't blow your socks off, you're not paying attention." -
"One of the hottest bands to surface in a long while." -
"Like a furious detachment of the Tower of Power horns."
"My favorite album of the year by far." - Contra Costa Times
"Snaps and crackles like James Brown's Famous Flames mixed with a New Orleans second line."

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!
