Jazz Trio Plays Empire Theater, Next Stop Carnegie Hall

An interview with Brent Watkins

There's a good chance you've heard Brent Watkins with South Texas Jazz...they are a vital force in the downtown music scene, appearing weekly at Bohanan's or Luke. Now the Brent Watkins Trio (Watkins on piano; Tyler Jackson, bass; and Dean Macomber, drums) take the stage at the Empire Theater with a program "The Sound of the Trio: A Tribute to Oscar Peterson" Tuesday June 11th.

"We played a fundraiser at the Empire, and I just loved the sound. I knew I wanted to comeback here," says Watkins. The trio will play music by Peterson and more, plus have a few special guests join them on stage.

The Brent Watkins Trio will play this program next January at Carnegie Hall.
