Donate to musicians who have been affected by the COVID-19 virus

Many members have lost their income from playing and teaching. They run the risk of losing their homes or healthcare due to their inability to pay. If you have the means to help, please consider donating here. Your donations are not tax-deductible but they will be held in a special fund allocated to musicians in need. Thank you for your generosity.

Eric Shifrin

Jazz Piano and Vocals


Since 1993, Eric Shifrin has been performing steadily in the Bay Area.  He’s been the house pianist at the landmark Fairmont San Francisco since the turn of the century.  This year, SAN FRANCISCO magazine named him The Best Piano Man ‘ 07.  In addition to adding the final polish to the sophisticated atmosphere of  the Fairmont’s Laurel Court 4 nights a week,  Shifrin displays his saloon stylings at his “buried treasure” Mondays at North Beach destination:  The Washington Sq. Bar & Grill. ERIC & THE IN CROWD is often a trio (every Saturday @ the Fairmont) featuring Eric on piano with bass and drums. For special events The In Crowd expands to include a saxophone or guitar and/or also feature Shifrin’s famed baritone voice. Eric Shifrin is a full time musician and composer,  a fanatic for records and sheet music and truly loves to perform his favorites from a vast repetoire.
