About

A co-production of local jazz guitarist Alex Pinto and local music presenter Laura Maguire, SF Offside was created to fill a perceived gap in the regional jazz festival circuit.

With an exclusive focus on homegrown talent, the mission of SF Offside is to draw attention to the incredible creativity to be found right here in our own backyard, and to build larger audiences for specifically local jazz offerings.

Our hope is that the San Francisco Bay Area ultimately gets the recognition it deserves as home to a rich, diverse, and exceptionally talented jazz community.
