Bill Weber and his Jazz Mural Bill Weber’s public and private murals are scattered throughout Northern California. However, the Jazz Mural at 606 Broadway St. in San Francisco is his largest at four stories high and more than 100 feet long. The location marks the point where Chinatown, North Beach, and the old Barbary Coast sections of the City come together. The mural features Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson, and San Francisco legends Bill Weber explaining the Jazz Muralsuch as Herb Caen, Emperor Norton, and San Francisco mayors. Bill first painted the Jazz mural in 1987 with Tony Klaas.

Twenty years have gone by and the colors of the mural have faded. Bill began restoring the mural three years ago but funds have run out. According to Bill, a mere $15,000 is needed to finish the restoration (on the Broadway side) but the city has made no contribution.
