The Piano Starts Here series highlights the work of some of the most prolific and talented composers and pianists to have ever tackled the instrument. Each of the performances brings together Seattle’s finest pianists to perform the works of the artist selected for that evening on the Royal Room’s Steinway B grand piano.
This installment will feature the works of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and Jaki Byard.
Hosted by Alex Guilbert.
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.
Please note: Tickets do not guarantee seating during shows at the Royal Room. For sold out shows standing room may be the only available space. Please come early to ensure you get a table. Reservations can be made for those who are coming for dinner as well as the show. The Royal Room is All Ages until 10pm.
