Bass Player Presents: The Yellowjackets at Yoshi’s Oakland on July 17th
The Yellowjackets, featuring bassist Felix Pastorius, are coming to the Bay Area for two dates at Yoshi’s Oakland in Jack London Square. There is one 8pm show each night on Tuesday July 16th and Wednesday July 17th. Bass Player will be onsite the 17th handing out free magazines and swag to players who will surely come out in force to see one of the most important acts in modern jazz perform with Felix, whose father Jaco Pastorius revolutionized the roll of the electric bass in jazz. Felix has stepped up his game to step into the shoes of longtime Yellowjackets bassist Jimmy Haslip, so these promise to be gigs to remember!
