The SJZ Boombox Truck rolls out to Taylor Street Night Market, presented by Gordon Biersch Brewing Company and Moveable Feast, with headliner Saúl Sierra Trio. Every Thursday night from 5-9pm, enjoy street cuisine, live music, makers and breweries coming together in the beautiful Japantown neighborhood.
Saúl Sierra is one of the go-to bassists in the South Bay. He’s a key member of our Summer Jazz Camp faculty each June and a founding member of the SJZ Collective, which just toured Taiwan and dropped its first EP, SJZ Collective Reimagines Monk in 2018.
Born and raised in Mexico City, Sierra moved to the US in 1995 to attend the Berklee College of Music. As a resident of the Bay Area since 1999, he has performed, toured or recorded with Nestor Torres, Jimmy Bosh, Eddie Montalvo, Johny Rodríguez, Orestes Vilató, Bobi Céspedes, Antonio Sánchez, John Santos, Jesús Díaz, Rebecca Mauleón, Chuchito Valdez, Wayne Wallace, Anthony Blea, Doug Beavers, and María Márquez, among others. A founding member of Vission Latina, the band that he co-leads with Carlos Caro and Marco Díaz, Sierra keeps himself busy performing, composing, arranging and teaching.
