UMS brings the Big Easy to Downtown Home & Garden with a season opening event featuring Butler, Bernstein & The Hot 9. Retro-futurist brass man Steven Bernstein has a soft spot for early jazz, so his hookup with New Orleans pianist and singer Henry Butler is bound to deliver big fun. A virtuoso who has been blind since birth and channels sounds as diverse as his Louisiana birthplace, Butler’s technical ability and expansive repertoire are nothing short of legendary. He “revels in fluency and facility, splashing chords all over the keyboard and streaking through solos with machine-gun articulation.” (New York Times)

Butler and Bernstein first worked together in the Kansas City All Stars, a touring big band that came out of the Robert Altman film Kansas City. They use New Orleans tradition and early 20th-century blues as a launching point toward exploration that is “both historically aware and fully prepared to cut loose.” (New York Times)

General admission ticket with limited seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Come early and enjoy food and drink from Mark’s Carts and Bill’s Beer Garden!
