The Astoria Jazz Festival returns for a Valentine’s Day performance you are sure to fall in love with.

The Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group is a true all-star band, with all four musicians being inductees into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. There’s Dan Balmer on guitar, Renato Caranto on sax, Louis “King Louis” Pain on the B-3 Organ, and the icon Mel Brown on the drums. Each member is widely viewed as tops in the Northwest on their instrument, making this a "Who's Who" of jazz, blues, and soul. They’ve been favorites at clubs, festivals, and were featured in the nationally syndicated NPR program, Jazz Night in America. This is a must-see event for anyone who loves jazz.

Dinner is included with each ticket purchase, prepared and served by Chef Jordan Wilson of Surf 2 Soul. His food blew attendees away at the last Jazz on the River, and he is back to wow you again.

This is a limited-capacity event and the previous Jazz on the River show sold out. If you love incredible music and amazing food, grab your tickets before they’re gone.

Ticket includes dinner & music. Vegan options available. Cash bar. Doors open at 6:00pm, Dinner 6:30pm, Music 7:30pm. This exclusive event is limited to 100 tickets.

$65. Includes dinner.

This very special show, featuring guest vocalists Sean Holmes & Arietta Ward, is part of the 2023 Biamp PDX Jazz Festival. Go to the festival's website to learn about all the great shows taking place all over Portland that week!

We're happy to be keeping our Thursday night tradition alive (20 years at Jimmy Mak's and 5 years at the JLR (with a 1-year COVID pause). On average, we play two Thursday's per month, and those shows frequently sell out, so you're advised to purchase your tickets ASAP! Go to the Jack London Revue's website (www.jacklondonrevue.com) to confirm dates and purchase advanced tickets (thru ticketweb.com).

This is a wonderful free, all-ages lunch-time concert series put together by Portland's young drum phenom Tyrone Hendrix. We really enjoy "Lunch & Soul," and it's a great opportunity for our fans to enjoy the Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group (sans guitar) in an intimate setting without the need to venture downtown at night. Oh: and the service, beverages and food are all great!
