COVID-19 update – April, 2021
The Bach continues to live stream from our Half Moon Bay venue. We’ll resume in-person concerts when it’s safe to do so.
"This an incredible historic spot for Jazz. The venue is tiny, with a real personal vibe and all good seats with a concert most Sunday afternoons."
"Wow, I'm kicking myself for not coming before. Saw Kendrick Scott Oracle this weekend and the show was incredible."
Half Moon Bay, CA
"The best venue in the SF Bay Area to see world class jazz in an intimate setting.The most lovely people attend the concerts so it's good vibes all the way around."
Pete transformed a tiny beach-side shack into one of the most intimate and vibrant jazz venues in the world. Through the years, our concert hall has come alive with a long list of jazz legends, including Betty Carter, Bill Evans, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Max Roach, McCoy Tyner, Bobby Hutcherson, Art Blakey, Etta James, Milt Jackson, and Eliane Elias, to name just a few. It’s no wonder that the Bach has been listed as a DownBeat magazine “Great Jazz Venue” for several years running. And beyond jazz, we have featured classic notables including the Kronos Quartet and Mariano Cordoba. Pete’s vision and spirit live on at the Bach through his daughters, as they carry on with a unique mix of quality local, upcoming, and world class programming.
