Meet the Musicians for Skirvin Jazz Club April 19th, 2019

Last show was our first ticketed Skirvin Jazz Club, and the energy in the room was outstanding. Thank you for being the hippest crowd in OKC.

April is the first month to feature 2 back-to-back shows. May will also feature an Early/Late Show, and we have some incredible ideas in the works for June.

Meet the Musicians for April 19th

April 19th, I’ll be featuring an artist who is very special to me. Jay Wilkinson is the professor of jazz studies at OU (he was my instructor for jazz band, jazz tech, and improvisation). He’s a brilliant writer, arranger, vocalist, trumpet player, and pianist. He’s an inspiring writer and improviser, and I’m elated to feature him at Skirvin Jazz Club.

We’ll also be featuring a who’s who of Oklahoma City’s first-call jazz artists. Check out the lineup below, and get your ticket at OkSessions.com/Skirvin.
