From MojoFlo and Doc Robinson, to fo/mo/deep and his own trio, Robert is incredibly versatile and professional. Hear him play some great solo organ, sometimes with a special guest! 

4th Floor Live: Stan Smith & Alex Burgoyne Quartet
@ The Jazz Academy

Alex Burgoyne and his quartet, featuring Stan Smith, Phil Maneri, and Ryan Folger, is a group focused on the freedom of open forms and improvisation. Drawing from influences like Paul Motian and Ornette Coleman, as well as great guitarist composers from the fusion era, Alex and his band express a wide range of musical emotions, from soft and introspective to bombastic and wild.

Lucas Holmes // Roger Hines Duo
@ Black Point

Lucas and Roger are two of the best duetists in town. I love the way each of them accompanies soloists, so I can only imagine that the musical empathy they each bring will make a night of really excellent music. Go get a drink and enjoy the ambience of this hip, short north spot.

Al Son Del Iya
@ Brother’s Drake Meadery
