Tickets are $10. Additionally, all health care professionals and teachers/educators can attend Tuesday night performances free of charge with a valid ID.

“Our Jazz Therapy series was launched during the pandemic (once the club reopened to the public) as a thank you to these phenomenal frontline workers who were helping the community navigate COVID,” said Kris Kimura, Founder and Owner of the Parker Jazz Club. “This summer, we decided to include educators for similar reasons. Plus, this weekly show provides an easy and inexpensive access point to the club for guests, with $10 coverage. The “therapy” aspect of this series plays on how just listening to jazz music is actually quite healthy and helpful in lowering blood pressure and relieving stress. Jazz Therapy was designed as a way for us to give back.

While following all CDC and local guidelines, Parker Jazz Club has remained flexible to meet health guidelines during the pandemic and will continue to apply the best safety measures. Kimura has amplified its state-of-the-art livestreaming program to share content on Parker’s website for every performance over the past year. It’s also an optimal opportunity to capture every live broadcast with a well-produced video recording, another key feature of the listening room.
