PDX Jazz @ The ArtBar, September 19 Through December 12

Posted on by pdxjazz

Expanding on a partnership which began with the Portland Jazz Festival’s yearly February concerts, PDX Jazz and the PCPA continue to bring exciting jazz into downtown Portland with the series PDX Jazz @ the ArtBar. Here, you’ll find top local artists playing in an open and club-like space on select Fridays and Saturdays, September through December with no cover charge and no minimum drink order required.

The acts dovetail with each evening’s main performances at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall and the other venues of the PCPA to create a full evening for theater goers and whoever wants to enjoy great jazz on the town.

“We’re thrilled that as Portland’s jazz organization we can bring some of the region’s best jazz acts to the PCPA,” states PDX Jazz Artistic Director Bill Royston. “This partnership is a natural fit for everyone.”

PCPA welcomes the opportunity to bring great jazz into its venues. “Partnering with PDX Jazz allows the ArtBar and the PCPA to welcome the community into our buildings and offer patrons a top-quality music experience,” says Dave Woodman, Assistant General Manager of ArtBar & Bistro at the PCPA.

PDX Jazz @ the ArtBar is free and open to the public. The ArtBar & Bistro is open during all performances, and serves gourmet food and specialty cocktails from 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM.
