The Crooked Jades reunion A one-time only cinematic retrospective performance invites former Crooked Jades members back into the lineup for the latest of their rare, always mysterious, moving and unpredictable shows.
Joining founders Jeff Kazor and Lisa Berman and long-time member Erik Pearson (composer of the Crooked Jades tune featured by Sean Penn in his 2007 film Into The Wild) will be important former members of what some now call the Crooked Jades Collective. Playing bass will be Megan Adie who is back in San Francisco after a decade of living and playing 17th and 18th century double bass in Europe. A key member of the Crooked Jades evolution, touring and recording with the Jades for several years, her iconic (arco) bass can be heard on the band’s acclaimed album Worlds on Fire. Playing mandolin will be Bill Foss, an integral player on the band’s award-winning PBS documentary soundtrack Seven Sisters: a Kentucky Portrait. Also featured will be Tom Lucas, long time Jade contributor who championed the minstrel banjo into the Jade lexicon. Plus more special guests TBA.

I’m sure we’ve all been touched by the devestating fires that have destroyed nearly 7,000 homes and have taken 40 lives. Our hearts go out to those affected by the North Bay fires. The Crooked Jades want to help anyway we can and would very much like to re-direct the intention of November 16th event to be a Fire Relief Benefit Concert. All proceeds from the event will be donated to North Bay Fire Relief: https://www.redwoodcu.org and Rebuild Sonoma Fund: http://rebuildsonomafund.org We promise a wonderful evening of music and hopefully some healing power in the face of this overwhelming tragedy.
The Crooked Jades are so excited to announce we are finally back in the studio making progress on a brand new album. This show will be a “preview” of our upcoming release, projected for early spring 2018.
Megan Adie will be joining the band for this special show. She is back from living and playing music in Denmark. Megan has been an integral part of the band’s evolution–toured and recorded with the Jades for several years and played on Unortunate Rake vol. 2, and her iconic bass playing on Worlds on Fire (Arco). This will be a reunion of sorts–further celebration of our 23 years in the bizzz.
