On November 8th The Washington Center for the Performing Arts is excited to welcome The Steve Bentley Band for the first show of our 2013/14 Black Box Cabaret Jazz Series. Percussionist/Composer Steve Bentley is a Tacoma native who in 1979 moved to Olympia to study and perform with Bert Wilson’s Rebirth and perform with the legendary Obrador band. Since that time, Steve has become recognized as one of the northwest’s finest percussionist. His compositions are a stellar example of creative excellence mixing the influences of Jazz and Classical masters. All the compositions for the night will come from Steve’s original songbook. Joining Steve on stage are, Jim Pribbenow saxophone, Steve Luceno bass and Brian Kinsella piano. This is the second year of our Jazz series and all the shows from the first year were sellouts so getting your tickets early is smart. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the music starts at 8 p.m. Tickets at 360-753-8586
