With his “virtuoso chops and capacious personality” (The Boston Globe), Jon Batiste “whips up excitement” (The Wall Street Journal) as the leader of the rip-roaring jazz-roots collective Stay Human, igniting the music world – and your TV – as Late Night with Stephen Colbert’s house band. The Juilliard-trained jazz and R&B multiinstrumentalist has forged his own artistic path, from his particular brand of New Orleans-infused funk and pop to his eloquent solo album Hollywood Africans. Following his life-affirming Santa Barbara debut in 2019, Batiste is back, pounding the keys in a high-octane night of pure musical joy.
