JAZZ MAFIA | ADAM THEIS QUARTET

Jazz meets rap at Black Cat for a sexy, edgy and engaging urban sound that seamlessly melds jazz and street vibes.

As Jazz Mafia’s director, Adam has assembled over 100 different live projects over the past 17 years and led/co-led dozens of acclaimed bands. He is also the Director of SFJAZZ’s Monday Night Band, Director of the Truckee Jazz Camp, and winner of the Gerbode-Hewlett Foundation’s “Emerging Composer” Grant.
