Concerts at the Cadillac: Wilbur Rehmann Quartet

by Staff Writer on October 28, 2011

Join us this Friday, October 28th at 12:30 p.m. at the Cadillac Hotel for our monthly “Concerts at the Cadillac” series. Bought in 1977 by Leroy Looper, the Cadillac became the first non-profit “supportive housing” SRO on the West Coast – a national model, and which shaped Leroy’s contribution to San Francisco. Since 2007, the Cadillac has also been home to the Patricia Walkup Memorial Piano – a fully restored, 1884 Steinway Concert Grand. Looper, who passed away last month, greatly enjoyed these concerts – and we will always miss not seeing him in the front row each Friday, tapping his feet along to the music. This month, we are fortunate to have one of the “deans of Montana jazz”, saxophonist Wilbur Rehmann, with Cadillac veterans, E. Doc Smith on drums, Sam Peoples on piano, and Ariane Cap on bass. The show will in part, also be a tribute to jazz composer Bobby Hebb. The concert is free of charge, and the Cadillac Hotel is at 380 Eddy Street. Seating starts at Noon.
