John Finkbeiner was a Berkeley resident, an exceptional guitarist, and a beloved studio owner and recording engineer working with cutting-edge new music, jazz, and pop artists in the Bay Area. John died from cancer in September 2021 at age 47. Now, a year later, forty of his musical friends are gathering to perform for this, the first memorial event to honor John's legacy and contributions to the community.
