For a jazz lover, this concert was like tiramisu to a dessert lover! Bob Dorough is genius and brings such a wealth of experience and jazz history to the stage. And, Mose was his quirky, funny self! It was a privelege to see these two in a venue...continued

I've always loved seeing/hearing Mose; he's a one of a kind. I had never seen Bob Dorough and that was a real treat too. Yoshi's remains a stellar place to hear live music.

Very entertaining and enjoyable experiencing legendary vintage artists in the intimacy of Yoshi's. We sat in last row in the back and had great seats.

Two great performances. Both of these witty and talented jazz men were in fine form. Their drummers and string bassists were also awesome. I am so glad I was there!

Good show. Great value. Allison and Dorough wre an appropriate pairing. And I got to see fireworks afterwords. Also, I took BART for the first time from SF to pretty near Yoshi's. A nice but not too long walk. Very convenient.

Excellent jazz, venue very friendly and comfortable...Mose a large cut above Dorough, but both enjoyable.

A fun evening with these two masters. I prefer Mose's very dry sense of humor but appreciate all the musicians.

Was a bit unhappy with the service...:-(

I used to see Bob Dorough every year at the old Kimball's in SF; I've missed hearing his music and it was wonderful to see that he's still going strong. Mose was good, too, but Bob's my guy! I talked to several people who had never heard of Bob...continued

As usual, a great day at yoshi's. Goldstar always sends me the right deals to the right shows. Yoshi's could use more servers as it is tough to get drinks before and during the show, but the event was amazing!

Bob Dorough is a funky cat for...continued

Mose Allison is still a great entertainer. I first saw him 35 years ago in Boston and have loved his music ever since. Yoshi’s is a wonderful venue for artists like Mose. I believe it energizes the artist to be so close and intimate with the...continued

Wonderful stuff from two legends.....I agree with Susan the service was dreadful. They must be losing a fortune on drink orders not taken.

Yoshi's is such a great venue that half of the reason I loved it is because it is such a wonderful club, an experience in and of itself. I had never seen Bob Dorough before and enjoyed his fun songs. Mose Allison is a national treasure that...continued
