There’s something utterly awe-inspiring about Jon Batiste’s combination of exuberant charisma, jaw-dropping talent and dapper sense of style. In a flash, he transitions from belting a note to busting a dance move to wailing on the “harmonaboard” (a kind of harmonica and keyboard) to commanding the piano with virtuosic skill and artistry. The New Orleans-bred, New York-based musician balances a demanding international performance schedule with his role as bandleader for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and Artistic Director at Large of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem. This unique, intimate solo piano concert marks Batiste’s Central Coast debut.
“… He’s one of the greatest musical minds of his generation.” – TIME 

“… there’s no doubt in my mind that he’s an actual genius.” – The Atlantic
