Omaha Performing arts continues its 1200 Club Live at the Holland season with an exciting weekend of performances January 25 and January 26, 2019 at 7:30 PM music from the Sidewalk Chalk and Dave Stryker on two consecutive nights  live in the Scott Recital Hall at the Holland Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $30 at TicketOmaha.com, in person at the Ticket Omaha* Box Office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center or by calling (402) 345-0606. 

Chicago-based band Sidewalk Chalk transcends genre with a wholly original sound that combines jazz, funk, hip-hop and R&B. Comprised of an emcee, vocalist, drummer, bassist, keys player, trombonist and trumpeter, this powerhouse group has audiences and critics alike abuzz with excitement!

Opening act Summaluna is a new frontier of artistry for drummer John J. Evans and guitarist Cubby Phillips. Both have a unique background in R&B, funk, folk, and rock, but they find the greatest kinship in jazz and improvisation. 

Omaha native and celebrated jazz guitarist Dave Stryker was “one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years" and he has also been named a Top Jazz Guitarist for the last several years in the Downbeat Critics and Readers Polls.
Stryker grew up in Omaha and moved to New York City in 1980 where he joined organist Jack McDuff’s group. From 1986 to 1995, he played with tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine. He has also performed with Freddie Hubbard, James Moody, Dizzy Gillespie, Jimmy Smith, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and many others. 

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.
