Conspiracy of Beards performing Leonard Cohen’s “The Window” at a.Muse Gallery in San Francisco in 2012. There was a solar eclipse that day.
We had a great time singing at Kuumbwa Jazz in Santa Cruz on Sunday. The crowd was warm and engaged, and the venue was lovely. Mayim Vocal Trio sounded amazing. We will definitely be back.
We sang at San Francisco’s Fellow Barber Shop for the 2013 Litquake Lit Crawl. Bruno Orsini captured this video.

Please join us for a night of song and vocal play in Santa Cruz at the Kuumbwa Jazz center on Sunday, February 23rd at 7pm.

The choir is always excited to return to what feels like home at The Rite Spot in San Francisco. And what’s even more exciting is sharing the bill with Peter Whitehead as well as the debut performance by Volunteer Plum. Both opening acts are current choir conspirators and talented musicians sure to entertain. This is a free show, so grab your friends and come join us for a drink and a song. The show starts at 8pm. Visit the Event Page for more information.

We would love to have you all join us in the flesh this Sunday at Viracocha in San Francisco. But if you can’t make it, you can still catch the show streaming live online, and it will be a show to remember! With the soulful Viola Booth opening the night and special guest Suzanne Holland taking the stage second, as well as joining the choir later for The Window, we expect this end of the year performance to bring us all to tears at one point or another. This event is a fund raiser for Viracocha as they work towards improving their amazing event space.
With the help of our friends at 2ndLine.tv the entire show will be available for live streaming on a Pay-What-You-Will basis (suggested $10 donation). This will be a one-time viewing opportunity, the show will not be re-aired. It’s really easy to sign in and start streaming straight away. All proceeds go towards the Viracocha fund raiser. The stream starts at 8pm, so grab some friends, gather round the fire (your computer), and enjoy the show!
