Hear this Week – Live Music in St. Louis July 10 – 15
Our town has recently been named 22nd out of 100 on a list of “most active cities,” so let’s actively get out and hear some good live music! Go see for yourself with these Bands of Note:
Monday, July 10 – Great local jazzers Jim Manley and Randy Bahr are back at Momo’s Greek Restaurant. These musicians are always a class act. A perfect complement to your Monday. 7, no cover.
Tuesday, July 11 – Three-time Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter Jill Scott comes to our Fabulous Fox. If you’ve not been in a room when she’s performed, you need to rectify that. She and her band put on an amazing show. 8, $45-$125.
Thursday, July 13 – Up-and-comers the Jason Cooper Blues Band comes to BB’s Jazz, Blues, and Soups for what will be a rockin’ great show. Acoustic blues/Americana musicians Ivas John and Brian Curran open. 7, $10 after 9.
Friday, July 14 – If you’re in the mood for a great local act playing 70s-style dance music, get over to Helen Fitzgerald’s in South County. The Hustle will be making you party like it’s 1979. Leisure suites optional, but we assume encouraged. 9, no cover.
Saturday, July 15 – A special show at our community radio station, KDHX, happens tonight: “Here Comes the Jazz: Abbey Road Revisited.” Nebraska-based the People’s Key do a jazz revival of the Beatles’ classic album in a style reminiscent of the classic soul jazz sound of the 60s and 70s. 8, $15.
What the Locals Know: Kids love music too, and the Missouri History Museum knows it. That’s why they host a Summer Family Fun Series that includes “Music Mondays.” This Monday, July 10, is a special collaboration with We Stories and COCA, and kids and their adult friends will enjoy exploring the contributions St. Louis has made to music and dance. 10:30 a.m., free.
Music Note of Note: St. Louis is proud of its history of live music, and bands, clubs, and memorable concerts are documented on a fun site called stlmusicyesterdays.com. Local musician Greg Edick collects information, stories, and pictures from the 1960s to the 1990s. It’s a fun shuffle down memory lane.
