If you are looking for that special combination of live music, a jovial atmosphere and small town charm, then you need to know about the Summer Music Series in historic Ste. Genevieve.
Featuring a variety of musical styles ranging from soulful rhythm and blues to convincing musical tributes to Johnny Cash and the Beatles, the series runs for 7 consecutive weekends in June and July.
Now in its sixth season, the Summer Music Series brings regional and national touring acts to perform on stage at the Orris, a former movie theater in the historic district of downtown Ste. Genevieve.
The “We Always Swing”© Jazz Series closes out its 19th season with the Brad Mehldau Trio paying a return visit to Murry’s Restaurant and Jazz Club on Easter Sunday.
Mehldau is first and foremost an improviser, whose style and personality combine to create something close to controlled chaos. He has performed in a variety of small-group contexts, with Joshua Redman, Charlie Haden and Wayne Shorter, among others. But for the past nearly 20 years, the pianist’s most consistent configuration has been fronting a trio. Bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard, both Jazz Series veterans, accompany Mehldau.
Performances begin at 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.; the doors open one hour earlier. Get your tickets at the box office, on line at wealwaysswing.org or through Ticketmaster.

This unique new musical is based on the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name, about an annual contest at a Texas truck dealership, where ten hard-luck Texans compete for a new hardbody truck.
A new lease on life is so close each of them can touch it, and now for once, their fate is in their hands. Under a scorching sun, over the next 144 hours they will laugh, cry and push their bodies and minds to the limits, as they fight to keep at least one hand on a brand new truck. The contestant with the most nerve and endurance will drive away with the American Dream.
