Jeremy Davenport is returning to St. Louis to perform in a benefit gala at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, June 5 at the Sheldon Concert Hall.
Davenport (pictured), who now lives in New Orleans and leads the house band at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel there, has been coming back to his hometown each year for more than a decade to perform at Jazz at the Bistro over Thanksgiving weekend.
He also did a Twilight Tuesdays show back in 2010 at the History Museum, but otherwise has made few appearances here since the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when he moved back to St. Louis for a year and had a regular gig at the now-shuttered Busch's Grove.
Proceeds from this performance will benefit the programs and exhibits at The Sheldon's art galleries. Patron tickets for the gala are $250 and $125, and are available for purchase now by calling The Sheldon at 314-533-9900. These tickets include a pre-concert reception with "brunch-style appetizers and cocktails," plus complimentary parking, preferred concert seating, and a tax deduction.
Concert-only tickets for Jeremy Davenport will be priced at $40 orchestra, $35 balcony, and will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. Friday, April 29 at Metrotix outlets, by phone at 314-534-1111, and via the The Sheldon's website.
