Out On A Clef is a San Francisco Bay Area lesbian vocal quartet that has been entertaining Northern California audiences since 1997 with a variety of styles including swing, barbershop, and jazz. Savvy baby boomers with attitude, they are known for a blend of polished, tight harmonies performed in a unique and whimsical way. They often "de-range" their original and standard tunes, with humorous and twisted lyrics that poke fun at convention and at themselves, as well as conveying socially progressive messages. The group has a commitment to contribute to such community efforts as raising funds for AIDS services, assisting women with cancer, and in demonstrating validation and pride for people of all sexual identities.

Performance venues have included the Hopland Women's Music Festival, Theatre Rhinoceros, Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, Josie's Cabaret in San Francisco, L/G/B/T Pride Celebrations throughout the Bay Area, The Montclair Women's Cultural Arts Club, Mama Bears, Harvey's in the Castro, Rose Street House of Music, The Bishop's Ranch Retreat Center in Healdsberg, the Northern California Women's Choral Invitational in Napa, University campuses, the San Francisco Women's Building, numerous fund raisers. Out On A Clef has produced and performed in cancer benefit concerts, and has been featured several times on "Gayble TV." They also entertain at house concerts, weddings, and celebrations throughout the Bay Area.
