The New York Times describes Eldar as “a blend of musical intelligence, organizational savvy, enthusiasm and prowess that was all the more impressive for seeming so casual… an ebullient impressionist.” When he was signed to Sony at the age of 17, the young pianist from Kansas City was already well-known for his prodigious pyrotechnics and precocious knowledge of the bebop tradition. He’s worked with music masters including Dr. Billy Taylor, Michael Brecker, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, and many others. In addition to performing around the world and playing with world renowned symphony orchestras, Eldar has been on national TV, including the Grammy Awards, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, CBS Saturday Early Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

His sigil practice is a practice in mindfulness, although some may liken it to meditation or to a spiritual practice.

They are intentions that I incorporate into each day: body, mind, spirit, thought, laughter and others.” 8pm | BRIDGET KELLY BAND with opening act MIDDLEGROUND | BLUES| $25-$35  Inspired by classic & electric blues, the Bridget Kelly Band has placed their unique stamp on the blues-rock genre, with high energy live performances and a hybrid sound that mixes Texas Blues with various Southern Blues traditions.

Opening Act Middleground, comprised of acoustic blues duo Barbara and Mark Armbrecht, includes an eclectic mix of folk, pop, blues, ragtime and classic favorites, all of which have been flavored by Barbara’s fingerpicking style, and supported by Mark’s solid and expressive bass technique. Sat 9/26 8pm| KARINA IGLESIAS|  Soul R&B| $25-$35  Known as the sultry soul and R&B singer from NBC’s hit show “The Voice”, Karina was born and raised in Miami with Honduran parents. Her sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her individuality as an artist. With a style inspired by rhythm & blues, boleros, gospel and hip-hop, Karina delivers her performances with the intimacy of a deep soul crooner and the conviction and drive of a dauntless female singer/songwriter. In 2013, Karina was a contestant on NBC #1 Hit TV Show, The Voice, where she made it to the Top 16 Live Shows. She was originally picked to be on Adam Levine’s team and was then stolen by Shakira after her epic performance of “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World” by James Brown, which turned into a YouTube sensation.
