Before a show, after a show or between Winter Fest shows, Mama Kin is the perfect place to have some delicious food, a great artisanal cocktail and a great “hang.” We’ve worked with Mama Kin and Jazz in the Neighborhood to provide great music each Thursday (Free) and Friday (just $10) during Winter Fest. Tonight’s band is the Dmitri Matheny Quartet featuring Tony Peebles on sax, Deszon X. Claiborne on drums, Ruth Davies on bass and Matt Clark on piano. The band is on 6–9pm and is followed by a Tony Peebles-led jazz jam until 12:15am, so bring your instrument and join in! You might even be sharing the stage with some Ukrainian artists.
The SoFA entertainment district’s newest venue, Mama Kin offers the perfect trifecta of food, drinks & live entertainment in the former Cafe Stritch space, a storied location for live jazz. Enjoy a full bar and cuisine that’s a fusion of American classics and modern Mexican culinary flourishes. Leave boring behind with a selection of offerings that rises to the level of Mama Kin’s diverse musical performances in San Jose’s most interesting business district, where creativity and social life thrive.
