Ramsey Lewis Electric Band

Sponsored by Friends of Jazz St. Louis in Memory of Barbara Rose

Since his first recording over 50 years ago, legendary composer and pianist Ramsey Lewis has flourished, counting 3 GRAMMY awards, five honorary doctorates, and a prestigious Jazz Masters Award from the National Endowment for the Arts among his numerous accolades. In a Bistro exclusive, Ramsey Lewis brings his new, five-piece electric band to St. Louis in concerts that will revisit the grooves and tunes of Mr. Lewis’ great 1974 cross-over gold recording, Sun Goddess.  Expect a soul-stirring evening of Ramsey Lewis standards and new compositions.

“For those of us who value a pianist with a style quite his own and a technique that’s miles ahead of many more fashionable artists, Lewis commands respect…There is no pretense here, just straightforward music making.” – The Chicago Tribune

    Hi Rena,
    Sorry for the confusion. You will need to call the Jazz St. Louis office at 314.289.4030 (Monday-Friday, 9 am – 5 pm) to purchase the student tickets. Those are not available online through MetroTix. I hope to hear from you soon.
