VERSES: 6 Nights of Versatility, Connection & Music

Musicians and music lovers!!

I’m hosting a special event at Jazz Central Studios for the week leading up to my birthday (Sunday the 17th… aaaye! turn up) and it’s going to be a party/show/jam session EVERY NIGHT @ 10:30pm starting Monday 9/11 featuring my favorite musicians in the Twin Cities.

Monday through Saturday 10:30pm

Friday 8pm to 10pm Javier Santiago Quartet featuring Proper-T

The house band consists of some of the baddest musicians I’ve ever had the chance to play music with (and they all live right here in MN):

Javier Santiago – Piano
Proper-T – Vox and Keys
Omar AbdulKarim – Trumpet
LA Buckner – Drums
Miguel Hurtado – Drums
Ted Olsen – Bass

There will be many many SPECIAL GUESTS (you know who you are!!) as well so you don’t want to miss that!

Also I must mention that DANCING IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED!!

In case you were wondering what the reason is for us putting on this event:

1. It’s the week leading up to my birthday 🙂

2. I really want to bring us all together and celebrate life, love, music, etc. in these tumultuous and turbulent times (the world is messed up right now to say the least! We need to unify and connect with one another!)

3. I noticed that there isn’t a jam session every night in the Twin Cities and sometimes there’s only a small handful of places you can go at that hour (11pm on a weekday for instance) to experience live music at a high caliber. In my experiences living in places like New York City, it was always a privilege and a blessing to be able to go out at night and be able to get inspired by great artists and hone my craft with others that share the same dream. It’s also somewhat of an experiment that I hope turns into something more regular!

See you all there!!

Peace and Love,

Javier Santiago 😉
