Guiliana kicks off 2018-2019 1200 Club at the Holland season Saturday, November 3, 2018

Omaha Performing arts kicks off its 1200 Club Live at the Holland season at 7:30 PM Saturday, November 3, 2018 with music from the Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet in the Scott Recital Hall at the Holland Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $35 at TicketOmaha.com, in person at the Ticket Omaha* Box Office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center or by calling (402) 345-0606. 

Rising star Mark Guiliana is in demand across the spectrum from jazz to rock to electronic music. Hailed as “one of the most influential drummers of his generation” by JazzTimes, the young artist blends virtuosity on the acoustic drums with artfully deployed electronic beats and processing. 

Guiliana was chosen as Best Jazz Drummer in the Modern Drummer Readers Poll 2017, while DownBeat dubbed him a Rising Star in its Critics Poll. Along with leading his own groups – the acoustic Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet and electronica-minded Beat Music – the drummer has appeared on a string of acclaimed recordings with others. The verve and precision of Guiliana’s drumming was a primer mover of “Blackstar,” David Bowie’s multiple Grammy Award®-winning final album.


The 2018/2019 1200 Club transforms the Holland Performing Arts Center’s Suzanne and Walter Scott Recital Hall into a relaxed nightclub setting where patrons can experience performances by nationally and internationally known artists in jazz, blues and comedy. While enjoying the evening’s entertainment, audience members may enjoy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails served right to their candle-lit table.
