New Orleans, Louisiana jazz enthusiast Jon Batiste along with his band Stay Human is set to tour with a show at D.C.’s legendary Howard Theatre March 29.

Batiste developed a love for jazz and the piano as a part of a family of musicians and later through his studies at the renowned Juilliard School [1]. Through such training, Batiste’s piano prowess was developed to create projects like ‘The Amazing Jon Batiste!’ EP and his latest release with Stay Human, ‘Social Music’.

Batiste has toured internationally as well as making appearances in various film and television programs such as HBO’s ‘Treme’ and Spike Lee’s ‘Red Hook Summer.’ [2] For his efforts, Batiste has received prestigious honors such as the ‘Movado Future Legend’ award and the ‘Steinway Performing Artist’ title. [2]

Dedicated to influencing an appreciation for jazz, Batiste advocates for music education through various grassroots efforts. As an Associate Artistic Director with Harlem, New York’s National Jazz Museum, Batiste is exposing jazz to the mass forefront of young, intimidated listeners. [2]

The talented pianist along with his band offers a live music experience unparalleled to other artists of his time. At just 25 years old, Batiste aims to influence the urban culture of today with a forward thinking conscious on the evolution of live jazz art forms, amidst mainstream society’s prioritized focus on pop and hip-hop music.
