artist selected for that evening on the
Royal Room's Steinway B grand
Past PSH performances have highlighted the work of Sonny Clark, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Sun Ra, Bill Evans, Fats Waller, Keith Jarrett, Paul Bley, Herbie Hancock and Herbie Nichols. Curated by Wayne Horvitz and Tim Kennedy.
Hosted by Tim Kennedy.
Since its opening in 2011, part of the Royal Room’s mission has been to provide quality instruments to its performers. At the top of that list is a Steinway B piano, something very unusual for a club of this size and especially a club focused on local musicians. Over 10% of the Royal Room’s startup costs was the purchase of this instrument. After 5 years, that piano needs some serious love, and 20 of Seattle’s finest pianists have graciously donated their service for 2 nights of standards and originals on March 16 and March 23, 2016.
