Live music completely changes the atmosphere of any venue, and there's no city that gets that quite like New York does. Midtown is filled to the brim with live music in clubs and bars, and no matter what your style is, there's sure to be a venue that's right up your alley on City Guide's weekly calendar. From Midtown West to Midtown East, check out the rock, jazz, pop, and blues awaiting in our clubs and bars.

Jazz for Kids - Jazz Standard
October 07, 2018 - Manhattan

The Jazz Standard Youth Orchestra is a performance driven program that gives talented and dedicated young jazz musicians the opportunity to perform regularly in one of New York City's leading jazz clubs often with guest artists from the New York scene. The visiting guests give a workshop to the band members in addition to providing the experience of playing with the top musicians on the scene. On Sundays during the school year, the students rehearse and workshop in the room before opening the doors at 1:00pm and giving a concert that is free and open to the public at 2:00pm.

Mingus Big Band - Jazz Standard
October 08, 2018 - Manhattan

Gospel and blues, the New Orleans polyphony of Jelly Roll Morton and the urbane sophistication of the Duke Ellington Orchestra, the stride piano of James P. Johnson and the dazzling harmonizations of Art Tatum: all went into the Mingus cauldron, seasoned with dashes of circus music, obscure pop tunes, B-movie scores, flamenco, scraps of Mozart and Richard Strauss. To listen to Mingus is to hear the black American musical tradition talking to itself." (Adam Shatz, "An Argument With Instruments: On Charles Mingus" – The Nation, 9.17.2013)

Kevin Eubanks Quartet - Birdland
Through October 13, 2018 - New York

For nearly two decades the world knew where to find the acclaimed guitarist Kevin Eubanks. Five nights a week, Eubanks was cranking up the band and issuing steamy solos as music director on NBC's Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In the spring of 2010 Eubanks decided to go back to full time recording and touring. His recent ecordings for the Mack Avenue label explores the chemistry he maintains with star musicians on both coasts.
