Live Music in St. Louis – Hear This Week: November 28 – December 2
Thanksgiving is now in the rearview, and that means the beginning Christmas concerts and special holiday shows are starting to pop up. But if you’re a Grinch, no worries – plenty of others are listed in this Bands of Note:
Live Music in St. Louis

Saturday, December 1 – If you find yourself hungry for lunch and the real authentic Delta Blues, head over to one of our local treasures, Blues City Deli. Brian Curran will be playing while you munch down on that pastrami. 1 pm, no cover.

What the Locals Know: For more than a quarter of a century, our local women’s choir CHARIS has been celebrating and encouraging women and the LGBTQ community through music. Their “Meet Me at the Muny” concert is Friday, November 30 at 8 pm at the Missouri History Museum’s Lee Auditorium. $17 at the door.
Music Note of Note: For more than 20 years, the non-profit Jazz St. Louis has been the foremost presenter of jazz in St. Louis and throughout the region, as well as being a leader in preserving the legacy of this musical genre. Hundreds of local- and nationally-renowned musicians including Wynton Marsalis, Diana Krall, Harry Connick, Jr. and Al Jarreau, grace the Ferring Jazz Bistro stage each year. And make no mistake, it is one of the best listening rooms in the country…or as Bob Mintzer, multi-Grammy nominated saxophonist said, “Sonically, the best room on the planet!”
