Riggers Loft Wine Co. is a collective wine bar, tasting room, working winery and cidery, home to principle owners R&B Cellars, as well as Carica Wines, Irish Monkey Cellars, Barrel + Ink, and Far West Cider Company. Rigger’s Loft Happy Hour begins at 4pm Fri., Mar. 2 and the music will get down at 6pm until 9pm.
The Tauber/Browning Band has played at Riggers over the years, but tonight is special because Tauber has a new curved soprano saxophone. He said, “It has a sweet angelic sound and full bottom soprano; that makes it something of a cross between a soprano and an alto sax. And I love to play it.”
Tauber likes to play the Great American Song Book, the soulful spirit of the original jazz interpreters, using soft melodic and lyrical arrangements.
Besides beautiful views at this great jazz venue on the San Francisco Bay, Paul’s Street Eats, Rigger’s in-house food truck, offers up great food to pair with Riggers Loft wines. Sample Menu:
