COVID-19 update – December 16, 2020
The Bach will continue live streaming from our venue in Half Moon Bay during 2021. We look forward to welcoming back live audiences 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.
