The Parker Jazz Orchestra consists of some of Austin's finest musicians who have gathered to play some of the greatest big band music of all time—now with fewer musicians! But for good reason: we don't want to crowd the stage with too much talent. So as we social distance during the performance, guests can enjoy a sort of deconstructed orchestra—still savvy, still under the direction of the excellent Mike Sailors, still one of the best shows in town. It's just safer now.
Mike Sailors - trumpet
Ryan Davis - piano

GOOD TO KNOW
Our show starts at 8pm and doors open at 7pm. Your ticket guarantees your seat, but please note that table preference is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Though there’s not a bad seat in the house, if you have a specific table that you want to be seated at, arrive early.
