Michael Mordecai's Monday Night Jazz Jam

🐘

Michael Mordecai has been hosting his Monday Night Jam since 1980. When the Elephant Room opened in 1991, the JAM found it's permanent home in the basement. Many Austin Jazz greats cut their teeth at this unassuming Monday night hang where "the old pro's and the young lions mix licks". You just never know who might show up or what musical jam moment might spark the next cool collaboration.

JEFF LOFTON Electric Thang

🐘 9pm

"Born in Germany and raised in South Carolina, trumpeter Jeff Lofton has risen as a cornerstone of the Austin scene. He switches easily from NOLA swing to the birth of cool earning rave reviews for his Miles Davis tribute performances with the Jeff Lofton Quintet." - Austin Chronicle

Best Jazz Band '10-'11 and Best Horn Player ’13-’14 Austin Music Awards / Austin Chronicle Music Poll

Mitch Watkins Trio

🐘Early Show

At 13 Mitch started playing guitar with a surf band in McAllen, Texas. Years later he's traveling the world on multiple tours with Leonard Cohen. You're gonna want to hear the sounds that have endeared this master guitarist to so many and who Jazz Times Magazine calls "a man for all musical seasons".

Jitterbug Vipers

🐘Early Show

Jitterbug Vipers perform 1930s-style "viper jazz" with a rock 'n' roll twist. With Bree Romeo on vocals, Francie “Meaux Jeaux” White on stand-up bass, and Masumi Jones on drums, they’re the “original and only trippy-swingadelic 1930s rock band on Planet Earth.”

The Jitterbug Vipers perform every first and third Wednesday evening in the basement.

Sarah Sharp Quintet

🐘Early Show

Daniel Ramirez of Texas Lifestyle Magazine said it well, " Sharp’s intoxicating voice has been a mainstay . . . long enough to cement her place among Austin’s elite music-makers." The Elephant Room has been lucky to be a part of all that. She's an act you've got to see!

Brannen Temple Xpress

🐘 9pm

The musician's drummer, Temple is all about the music, which is probably why you won't find a website for him cause he just doesn't have time for that stuff but his discography tells it all - From Eric Johnson to Carrie Rodriguez, from Alejandro Escovedo to Lavelle White and so many more. His quintet brings it all and you won't want to miss a beat.
