BASSment is a collective of exceptionally talented musicians with a unique combination of virtuosity, chemistry, emotion and feel. Available in any size from a trio to seven-piece band or more, BASSment is capable of playing all sorts of music from soft dinner jazz to bluesy soulful funk to high-energy rock. The core of the band is an organ trio with guitarist Nate Mercereau, key bassist/organist Kevin Wong, and drummer Clarence Lewis IV. Extended personal includes bassist Scott Thompson, tenor saxophonist Daniel Casares, alto saxophonist Lionel Briones, trumpeter Will Magid, and vocalists Jonah Johnson, Lonny Dotson and Yvette Plyant.
The Blackthorn Tavern, a longstanding Irish pub in the heart of the Inner Sunset, has retooled in recent months with more free events and specials than ever, from Sunday afternoon barbecues and trivia to darts and pool competitions to live music and karaoke. Under new management since June, the Blackthorn retains its friendly, down-to-earth neighborhood appeal while adding more events, a photo booth, pinball machine and Golden Tee arcade game, not to mention a heat lamp on the outdoor smoking patio.
Blackthorn Tavern is at 834 Irving St., between Ninth and 10th avenues, in San Francisco. It is one block from Golden Gate Park, a 10-minute walk from the Academy of Sciences and de Young Museum. Blackthorn is just steps from the N Judah streetcar, in one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods.
