Lamar Harris replaces Matthew Von Doran for Halloween weekend at Jazz at the Bistro

Jazz St. Louis has announced that trombonist Lamar Harris (pictured) and his group Tribal Funk will perform at Jazz at the Bistro on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.

Harris replaces guitarist Matthew Von Doran, who originally was set to perform on those dates when the Bistro's season schedule was announced earlier this year. In a brief phone interview, Von Doran said he had to forgo his Halloween weekend at the Bistro after getting hired for a series of lucrative road gigs with Latin/pop group La Quinta Estación, but he hopes to reschedule for next year.

Tickets for Harris are priced at $15 for general admission, $10 for students. The news release sent out by Jazz St. Louis announcing the schedule change did not include any information on refunds or exchanges; however, if the usual JSL policy is in effect, those who have already purchased tickets to see Von Doran can either use them to see Harris instead, or get a refund at the point of purchase.
