Hillside Club Concert Series
Welcome to The Berkeley Hillside Club Concert Series. Our goal is to provide a superb venue for musicians and listeners to experience the joy of live music performance. Come join us in our historic and acoustically excellent hall and see why artists and audiences are raving about our Concert Series.
Our concerts are open to the public and generally begin at 8:00 pm (Sunday concerts usually start at 7:00 pm) but please check the individual concert listing for the exact time. Our doors usually open about an hour before show time.
Unless otherwise indicated, tickets for our concerts are only available at the door on the evening of the performance. We have no advance ticket sales or reservations. We accept cash or checks but NOT credit cards. Please check the individual listings, below, for the admission price on specific events.
Our hall is wheelchair accessible and our restrooms are ADA-compliant. We do not have off-street parking but parking in the neighborhood in generally not too difficult, and we are about seven-tenths of a mile from the Downtown Berkeley Bart station.

Live Streamed Online
from the Berkeley Hillside Club
Saturday 13 June 2020 at 8:00pm
Along with most of the rest of the world, Covid19 has had the Berkeley Hillside Club and its members hunkered down, inspecting their bunkers, and desperately missing the live music that used to grace our historic and acoustically-excellent hall. So, we've decided to do something about it. Using the remarkable technologies of the internet we're going to bring you the joy of music once again, live from the stage of the Berkeley Hillside Club.
So, tonight (Sat 13 June) at 8:00pm (or thereafter) point your browser at this link:
and it will take you to the live concert. And remember that the concert link will remain live so you may view the concert in its entirety at your convenience any time after the event starts.
Hillside Club Concert Series fans may recognize these artists; they are supremely talented jazz virtuosos who have each played in concerts at the Club many times. They have agreed to collaborate with us on this experiment in live streaming, performing on our stage without an audience, but still wrapped in the warm ambience of our hall. They will be playing a selection of wonderfully re-imagined jazz standards. These players never disappoint!
Michael Zilber - sax
Matt Clark - piano
Peter Barshay -bass
We hope this will be the first of many virtual concerts, until we can see each other again in person.
(We also beg your indulgence for any technical hiccups that we may encounter in this new venture.)
