Dallas - The nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center announced today that tickets for Jeff Goldblum & The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra will go on sale Friday, July 12 at 10 a.m.
Jeff Goldblum & The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, September 19, 2019 at Strauss Square in the downtown Dallas Arts District.
Actor Jeff Goldblum has been lending his uniquely wry charm and unpredictable edge to films like “Jurassic Park,” “The Fly,” “The Big Chill” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” for more than four decades. But he’s also an accomplished pianist who shows off his chops
in a jazz show-meets-musical hootenanny with his band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.
The quintet’s guitar, bass, sax, and drums complement Goldblum’s piano prowess and electric personality for a high-energy traditional jazz music performance that brings the audience to its feet. A captivating and hilarious performer, Goldblum’s quirky, intelligent and suave humor makes for an incredibly special evening!
With film credits including "Jurassic Park," "Independence Day," "The Fly," "The Big Chill," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," and “Thor: Ragnarok;" theatre performances including "The Pillowman," "Speed the Plow" and "Domesticated;" and television appearances including “Portlandia” “Inside Amy Schumer” and “Will & Grace,” Jeff Goldblum also plays jazz with his band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra.
Whether performing regularly at Los Feliz's Rockwell Table and Stage, or elsewhere, Goldblum will take your questions, ask you trivia questions, and play classic jazz. The evening typically features Goldblum on piano, John Storie on guitar, James King on tenor saxophone, Alex Frank on bass, Joe Bagg on organ and Kenny Elliott on drums, along with special guests.
In November 2018, Goldblum released his first full length recording with Decca Records, entitled “Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, The Capitol Studios Sessions”.
