The Eureka Orchestra is putting on its annual Chamber Music Benefit Concert at the Eureka Woman's Club today at 3 p.m. Your $30 buys a spot to watch the masterful playing of violinist Terrie Baune, cellist and Eureka Symphony conductor and music director/local treasure Carol Jacobson, pianist John Chernoff and guest saxophonist Scott Seaton as they work through what will likely be an exciting matinee.

The Jam is holding a daytime GetDown for local musician and electric cellist Mike Lee, who died tragically last month while surfing in Morocco. The informal jam kicks off at 1 p.m. and it is suggested that people bring a dish to share or money to donate to one of Lee's favorite charities. Expect a Journal blog post soon about Mike as told by his friends and contemporary musicians. Rest in peace, Mike Lee.

Tim Randles on piano, Mike LaBolle on drums and world-famous luthier and electric bass-maker Ken Lawrence on — what else — bass is the jazz trio RLA and tonight it plays with returning ex-pat champion trumpeter Nicholas Dominic Talvola at 7 p.m. at the Westhaven Center for the Arts ($5-$20 sliding scale). The show's theme is a tribute to Miles Davis and Nicholas, who tours full time as a jazz artist out of his home base in Spain, is more than up to the task to interpret the master's work.

Bay Area's Gypsy-influenced jam rock hustlers Diego's Umbrella — whose name I have always despised on a visceral aesthetic level — plays Humbrews tonight for the local happy-go-lucky set of groove music cognoscenti ($15). I won't pretend that this genre is my cup of tea but having caught one of the band's sets years ago at Summer Arts in Benbow, I understand the live appeal and, to paraphrase the 19th century humorist Artimus Ward, for people who like this sort of show, this is exactly the show for them. If you are one of those folks catch ya' boys at 9:30 p.m.
