Berkeley Music Group
The Berkeley Music Group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed to renovate and run The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall in Berkeley.

Our mission is to present a vibrant and diverse range of live performances to advance the understanding and appreciation of music, culture and education in the Bay Area.

The new UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall will be a music venue serving the community. The centerpiece of the project is to operate a state of the art music venue while educating and training youth, ages 17 to 25, through our arts and concert career pathways educational programs.

The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall will be a 1,400 capacity, general admission, multi-tiered, all-ages music venue with a state-of-the-art Meyer Leopard sound system and a full service bar and restaurant. This new live music venue will present an exciting range of local and national artists and bands. The UC Theatre will be the only general admission music venue of its size and kind in the East Bay.

The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall will start by presenting approximately 75 to 100 shows a year, featuring local, national, and international touring artists. We’ll offer the best and most popular bands performing Indie Rock, Alternative, Blues, Folk, Bluegrass, Rock, EDM, Latin, Brazilian, Jazz, R&B/Soul, Reggae, Afro-beat, Hip-hop, Electronic, and more. Additional programming will include comedy shows, film, and a speaker series. Community programming will include Symphony, Opera, Choral, Gospel, and more.

Flexible venue configurations include: 1,400 (capacity) general admission with limited seating, 750 (capacity) all seated at
tables & chairs, 500 (capacity) banquet seating, and more.

Giving back to the community…

The Berkeley Music Group is dedicated to ensuring that The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall strengthens the Bay Area’s vibrant fabric of nonprofit arts & service organizations. BMG will work to build a collaborative network of Community Partners with existing education, health, youth development, performing arts and music nonprofits to help them with their fundraising goals through events at The UC Theatre.

Our Educational Programs will offer a platform for learning the technical, creative, and business aspects of promoting concerts and cultural events through workshops and hands-on paid internship programs. Graduates from the internship program will be introduced to a network of Bay Area venues for employment opportunities. We will offer these programs to youth 17 to 25 attending local schools, to underserved youth in established programs at local non-profit organizations, and to the general public.

The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall will join the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Freight & Salvage Coffee House, Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, and other performing arts venues in the downtown Berkeley Arts District as a vibrant new music venue serving the community. The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall will serve as an entertainment and economic catalyst (including adding 150 new jobs) to downtown Berkeley, just as the Fox Theatre in Oakland helped to transform the uptown music, arts & entertainment scene, and boost economic revitalization in Oakland.

This project is a rare opportunity for community revitalization that will have a broad, diverse impact on music, culture, education and quality of life in our community. Your support of this project will MAKE A DIFFERENCE, for it drives the success of our capital campaign to rebuild and transform The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall into a live music venue.

We look forward to welcoming you to the UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall in 2016!”

“Organ meets Bigband” feat. Jon Hammond (organ)

Nachdem sich in den vergangenen Jahren das LaJazzO MV mit den in der Big Band vorkommenden Instrumenten musikalisch auseinandersetzte, wird in 2015 die Jazzorgel musikalisch thematisiert werden. Unter dem Titel “Organ meets Big Band” wird dieses sehr traditionsreiche Instrument der Jazzgeschichte in den Mittelpunkt der Konzertreihe im folgenden Jahr gestellt. Als Jazzinstrument wurde es von Fats Waller in den 30er Jahren eingeführt und hatte seine Hochzeit in den 50er Jahren durch seine Vertreter wie Jimmy Smith. Der international renommierte New Yorker Jazzorganist Jon Hammond wird zusammen mit dem LaJazzO MV unter der Leitung von Michael Leuschner den besonderen Charme dieses Instrumentes wieder zum Leben erwecken.
Jon Hammond studierte in den siebzieger Jahren am Berklee College of Music und am City College San Francisco. Konzertreisen führten ihn quer durch die Vereinigten Staaten und Kanada. In seiner eigenen ‘Jon Hammond Show’ spielte er mit Musikern wie Dizzy Gillespie, Paul Butterfield, Jaco Pastorius, John Entwistle, Sammy Davis Jr., Percy Sledge und vielen anderen. Auch in Europa fand und findet seine Musik unverändert viele Anhänger. Die Medien berichten wiederholt von einem unverwechselbaren und prägenden Sound. Jon Hammond hat u.a. auf der 20. Frankfurter Musikmesse mitgewirkt und tritt vornehmlich in Hamburg auf. “The Jon Hammond Show” is a funky, swinging Jazz instrumental revue, featuring notable international soloists and reflecting the influences of Miles Davis, The Crusaders and Jimmy Smith.
