Jazz performance at MONA Art Gallery in Troy

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Museum of New Art (MONA)

    The curators of MONA art gallery has opened a new location in Troy, MI

    They are looking for jazz musicians/groups to perform there for upcoming art shows. Most likely show nights would be on thursdays. I am currently waiting on more information such as the dates and such. They would like to hear any sound/video if anyone has performance/studio/decent rehearsal tracks I can pass it along to them, or direct them to your webpage/site. 

    I hope it's ok that I posted this. Any questions feel free to send me an email. Thank you :) When I find out more information I shall update it. Cheers and play on. - Jenny

    This event has been removed - until we receive actual confirmed information regarding this venue's jazz events/bookings. Since no date was ever selected, I had to arbitrarily add a date in order to cancel the event and remove from the calendar. I have never been able to any information about jazz performances here via email, facebook nor by phone. Hopefully, a jazz event will happen one day at this art gallery...

      Kendra, I met Jef last winter and he showed me the room where they were planning to have the entertainment perform. The room was extremely small, maybe forty or possibly 50 people seating capacity. Big enough to accommodate a single performer, duo, or maybe a trio. Very small area staging area.

    Is this actually going to happen? There's been no update of anyone playing at MONA and nothing from their website or Facebook page.

      Who knows... Jennifer who posted this event, left the group a couple of months ago. And the contact she referenced has been non-responsive to my emails. Very frustrating... because this sounded very promising. The location exist so I wonder if we just pay them a visit?

    Hi Jenny - since you posted this event last, are there any updates to share at this time? There seems to be a lot of interest in our group.

    If anyone else has recordings/demos they would like to submit to MONA either post it here and I can add it to the list I have already started complining for them or to their website or both (never hurts to have your info in two places) http://www.detroitmona.com/

    Just make sure to mention it's for the Troy location since they also have a location in Armanda as well. The Troy location is still being prepped (paint, etc) so it may still be a few weeks out any performances start there. But I will keep everyone posted on here. Thanks again thanks for the great feedback! Cheers

    Great to see such fast response :) The links to any recordings/soundbites are really helpful. Being that they are an art gallery they probably are open minded to groups beyond Jazz, so blues, swing, big band, latin, etc please join us Thank you
