Corey Christiansen, Matthew Von Doran to Perform at the Gramophone on Tuesday, August 18

This just in: In another welcome development during this relatively slow time of year for live jazz in St. Louis, guitarists Corey Christiansen (pictured) and Matthew Von Doran will team up for a performance at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 18 at The Gramophone.

Christiansen and Von Doran are old pals who have worked together before; in fact, Von Doran bought and now resides in the Webster Groves house that Christiansen vacated when he left St. Louis to move back to Utah in the fall of 2007. Tickets for their August 18 performance, which also will include bassist Ben Wheeler on bass and drummer Miles Vandiver, will be $5 at the door.

Unfortunately, this will be the last Tuesday night of jazz music at The Gramophone for now, as the club has ended the Tuesday night series of free shows that it co-presented with Jazz St. Louis. “We tried for almost 18 months and just could not get people out on Tuesday, even for free," said co-owner Andrew “Roo" Yawitz via email. “I hope to continue to feature jazz at The Gramophone, just not as a weekly event." For now, the club will be closed on Tuesdays except for touring acts and local special events like the Von Doran/Christiansen show. Regular business hours at The Gramophone will continue from 8:00 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
