the ivy room improv/experimental hootenanny

the ivy room improv/experimental hootenanny initially 2008 - 2011 :: revived in 2017 The brainchild of Lucio Menegon, the Ivy Room Hootenanny started, we believe, in the summer of 2008 as a musicians hangout and, for fans of the less than ordinary, a wet dream.

Crazy music, shifting sounds, living room ambiance. The tiniest slice of Berlin right in the San Francisco east bay. Every third Monday featured one featured act and three curated sets with five minute overlaps creating a seamless night of improvised outside music and spontaneous collaboration. Visual experimentation was encouraged, and circuits were routinely blown. The mantra: comfy couches • delicious beverages • NEVER a cover • many musicians • total surprises The Monday scene took root through the creative energy of Aram Shelton, Gene Baker, Andrew Conklin and CansaFis Foote supported by the free-thinking Ivy Room bartenders Ken McCown and Eric Leppo. In 2010, the scene grew up to Wednesdays, and any given Wednesday featured the best of outside music in a civilized setting, with occasional contemplation from the local press. In May 2011, the Hoot ended its series at the Ivy.
