The razor-sharp wit of famed stand-up Paula Poundstone will be on full display, as she slices and dices her way through an evening of keen cultural commentary. Famed for a quick mind that always manages to come up with the perfect quip, Poundstone is a master of riffing off the crowd. It's also why she's the perfect panelist for NPR's Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!, where she's featured alongside some of the nation's leading pundits. She broke through in 1990 with her acclaimed HBO special Cats, Cops and Stuff, and was both the first woman to be invited to perform at the White House Correspondents' dinner and the first woman to win a CableACE Award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special. Still knocking them dead as a headliner, Poundstone released her latest comedy disc, I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston, in April 2013, and has recently toured as part of the A Prairie Home Companion live show.

DAKAH HIP HOP ORCHESTRA
DJ JERRY ROSS
With more musicians than you can shake a stick at (topping off at 60 members), the Dakah orchestra is taking hip-hop in an entirely new direction.
Touted as the world's "largest hip-hop orchestra," Dakah's MCs and DJs are backed by a medley of classically trained musicians (many of whom are members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic) for a unique symphonic lineup.
While most of contemporary hip hop is contructed with minimal doses of samples and synths, Dakah provides a unique lush backdrop that can only be provided by live violins, violas, cellos, clarinets, oboes, bassoons, harps, and the rest of the symphonic range.
Though Dakah ranks as one of Los Angeles most beloved groups, with recent shows at the Disney Theatre and Henry Fonda Theatre attracting thousands, this will be their first show outside of Los Angeles, and it will be eagerly anticipated.
This year marks the historic 10th Anniversary of the North Beach Jazz Fest. After 10 years, NBJF has pulled out all of the stops to present its finest lineup ever, a feast of sights and sounds from around the United States.
With over 50 acts and hundreds of musicians, it's easy to see why this year's North Beach Jazz Fest will be the best ever!
