An Evening of Wine, Jazz & Magic
Join us for a special anniversary event!
We begin with a guided wine tasting at 4:15. We will feature selections perfect for holiday festivities and gifts. At 5P, we will mix music and magic with an awe-inspiring magic show with illusionist Patrick Martin and the sounds of the Eddie Pasternak Group featuring the swing of vocalist Tom Liles, accompanied by the all star line-up of Marcos Silva, Akira Tana, and Scott Thompson.
Magician Patrick Martin has entertained at the White House for three Presidents, featured at four Olympic Arts Festivals and appeared on a recent television special "Masters of Illusion." He was a guest of the Chinese government at a recent international conference in Shanghai where spoke on the techniques and psychology of western magic.
He was the first to be honored with two prestigious Grand Prix de Magie awards for his artistry on stage and at close quarters. He is often consulted to create illusions for television, film and the theatre, and has designed magical special effects for the San Francisco 49ers and for the Salle Garner Opera House in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Having sold out two previous Sound Room dates Eddie Pasternak's guitar sound has been a solid fixture in the Bay Area music scene for more than two decades. In music critic Lee Hildebrand's words, Eddie is a "remarkable guitarist who generates intense swing playing bass lines and chords simultaneously."...He'll feature:
