Robert Glasper Experiment









Houston native Robert Glasper and the plugged-in funk of his Experiment — a telepathic ensemble featuring saxophonist and vocalist Casey Benjamin, bassist Derrick Hodge and influential drummer Chris “Daddy” Dave — make their Miller debut in support of the 2013 Grammy Award-winning album Black Radio.













Let's gather by the steps near the picnic table area in between the picnic table area and the theater (look for the red balloons).  Please consider this area will look different when it is getting dark and when there are crowds of people.  The picnic table area is on the left side of the theater as you are looking at the stage.

If you are planning to attend the performance, but do not intend to join the group, please do not rsvp yes to this event.  It falsely enlarges the number of attendees.

We will be sitting in the bring-your-own-chair section on a grassy hill.  Please bring a camping chair or blanket/beach towel to sit on.  It is also suggested to bring your own snacks and beverages as well as bug spray.  No glass containers allowed.  (This is a city park policy ... no one will look.)

Admission is free.  Tickets are not required to sit on the hill.

Concessions and public restrooms are available.

Complimentary surface lot parking is available at the Houston Zoo Main Entrance and at the Houston Garden Center.  Complimentary street parking is available around Hermann Park.  Limited handicapped only parking is available in Parking Lot D behind the theater.

For GPS users, please consider even though the theater has a street address, it is located in the center of a public park.  Therefore, the parking areas are not directly adjacent to the theater.  In order to avoid any stress with finding an unfamiliar location at night, please review the MAP of Hermann Park and allow plenty of time to arrive at the theater.

    Larry and I were the only ones there at 7:30pm so we decided to go sit in the chairs. If you arrived late and couldn't find the group, it's because there was no group to find. I hope you still enjoyed the concert.

      Thanks for the explanation. We were late due to traffic. We were disappointed to not meet anyone, but enjoyed the picnic and concert!

    I hope to meet fresh faces. This will be my first. I hope to bump into old friends too...perhaps I'll invite a few. I'm looking to meet fellow artists and art lovers.
