Ah! Where do I start? I've been wanting to do a post on this incredible piece for a long time...
Three or four years ago Mike & Shannon from the slobber-worthy Vau de Vire Society contacted Jazz Mafia and told us they wanted to create a fully immersive, completely live, brand new show with us set in Barbary Coast SF. They said jump, we said how high, and three years later we're on our 4th successful run of this incredible piece.
This month-long run (hurry and grab tickets - weekend #2 starts tonight!) takes place in Vau de Vire's Italian Circus Tent Tortona, who is perched gracefully on the water in Alameda with breathtaking views of SF. From 8:00-9:00pm you can enjoy a meal by Work of Art Catering, with the musical offerings of my group Cosa Nostra Strings, and special VIP only acts.
At 9:00pm, General Admission ticket holders arrive and the two hour long show begins. Every number is a collaboration between Vau de Vire and Jazz Mafia. Every song is original, and most were written specifically for this show, for specific performers' acts. I dont want to give too much away, but its not to be missed! Incredible acrobats! Jaw dropping aerialists! Song and dance and theatrics! Action all around you at all times! There are few things I've been part of that have made me this excited and proud.
