Berklee College of Music presents Cafe 939, a state-of-the-art, all-ages, student-run music venue and coffee house. Located at 939 Boylston Street, adjacent to the Cactus Club, Cafe 939 will showcase Berklee’s emerging student talent, local artists, and national acts seeking a more intimate, personal space in which to perform and connect with their fans. Cafe 939 is open to the general public and hopes to attract musicians and music fans from all walks of life. While most rooms in Boston have a specific musical niche, Cafe 939 will embrace nearly any style, from rock, jazz, folk, and world, to bluegrass, hip-hop, electronica, avant-garde, and beyond.

“We don’t care if you play the saw, accordion, or electric sitar—as long as you’re good, this could be the room for you,” says Jacqueline Indrisano, Cafe 939 event manager. “We want this to be a place where all are welcome and anything can happen.”

Cafe 939 will hit the ground running with a stellar lineup of events. Puerto Rican saxophone phenom, Marsalis Music recording artist, and Berklee grad Miguel Zenón will kick off Marsalis Berklee Jams, April 2–3, an ongoing series that will bring outstanding working ensembles from the jazz world to Berklee to perform with the college’s finest students. (The quartet returns to Boston to perform a full concert program at the Jorge Hernandez Cultural Center on May 1.) Executive Sessions, a Thursday night concert series with bands that include local CEOs, will open with folk rockers the Loomers, led by Tom Simons, president/creative director, Partners & Simons, on April 17.
