THU, AUG 5 | An Evening with Gregory Porter

Opener: Marcus Shelby Quartet w/ Tiffany Austin
Thu, AUGUST 5 at 7:30 PM PT
Tickets: $30/45/60/90/120

A two-time GRAMMY-winner and six-time nominee, Gregory Porter has undoubtedly become jazz’s most celebrated male vocalist, “a jazz singer of thrilling presence, a booming baritone with a gift for earthy refinement and soaring uplift” (The New York Times). After the success of his 2010 debut Water and follow-up Be Good, Porter broke through to mainstream stardom with his Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit, winning the 2013 GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album. He repeated the GRAMMY and chart success of Liquid Spirit with 2016’s Take Me to the Alley, and his latest two recordings, 2017 tribute to Nat “King” Cole, Nat “King” Cole & Me and 2020’s All Rise both received nominations. Growing up around rollicking tent revivals, Porter brings the same soul-stirring authority to jazz settings, revealing powerful truths with heart and grace.

Backed by the Marcus Shelby Quintet, renowned Bay Area vocalist Tiffany Austin opens this exciting concert.
