Event Page: Jeff Austin Band at The Top Hat (12/8/2017)

Austin’s latest project includes collaboration with top-notch acoustic and jazz players. His collaborators are not only proficient in theory and technique, but also open to more “far out arrangements.” His influences include sounds and styles from years of theater, collaboration, performance, and experiencing live music as a fan. Speaking as a concert enthusiast, Austin comments on the audience…

“I hope they take with them exactly what I hope they leave with us,” he says. “And that’s inspiration.”- Jeff Austin

The bluegrass artist has played with greats like Phil Lesh and collaborated with Keller Williams and Keith Moseley (String Cheese Incident) on a Grateful Dead cover album entitled Grateful Grass. 

Mark your calendars for an evening of lively bluegrass and impeccable musicianship. Tickets will go on sale Friday, Aug 4th at 10AM MDT and will be available online, over the phone at (877) 987- 6487, or at The Top Hat in downtown Missoula.
