The Art Center will be turned into a 1920s speakeasy, and guests are welcome to come dressed to the nines or in their casual attire. Hooch (beer and wine) available for sale. General admission tickets are $50 for one or $90 for two, and are available online or at the Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. A table for four (with a bottle of wine) may be purchased for $500.

“Over the course of an extraordinarily diverse career in the realms of jazz, pop and the studio, multi-woodwind specialist Bob Sheppard has always let his array of saxophones, flutes and clarinets do the talking. He has been a member of the Billy Childs Ensembles and the Peter Erskine trio for over a decade. Additionally, he has toured with Steely Dan and Boz Scaggs, and brought his diverse talents to more recent performances with James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Queen Latifah and, most notably, with the legendary Joni Mitchell on her current four-disc set and her 2007 Grammy-winning ‘Shine.’”
