Saint's Sessions Bring Jazz to the Plaza

The Plaza District is the place to be on a Thursday night if you’re looking for live music and good vibes.

Saints Sessions is a jazz show that happens every Thursday night at Saints Pub in the Plaza. The show starts at 8 p.m. and goes until 10 p.m., and there’s a $10 cover at the door. Every week, we bring in nationally-renowned artists to hang out and jam. 

On June 14th, Raul Reyes will be joining us. Reyes is a Cuban-born bass player who came to the U.S. eight years ago. He received his Bachelor's Degree of Bass Performance at UCO and is pursuing his Master's of Jazz Performance at the University of North Texas. Joining Reyes will be joined by Sweden native Stefan Karlsson, whose discography includes more than 70 recordings, and Quincy Davis, a Michigan-born jazz drummer who made a name for himself in New York in the 2000s and is the current assistant professor for Drumset at University of North Texas. He’s played with Wynton Marsalis, Peter Berstein, and Roy Hargrove,and many other notable names in jazz. 

On June 21st, we’re bringing in the Zac Lee Quantent. Leeis the instructor of jazz composition, jazz arranging, and music technology at the University of Central Oklahoma. He has performed in Europe, South America, and the Caribbean. In 2009, he studied with some notable names in music like Dave Douglas, Josh Redman, and Tony Malaby.
