SEPTEMBER 16: Friday Jazz at the High featuring André Rievers

Friday Jazz at the High continues with great music on Friday, September 16 from 6 to 10 pm with André Rievers.

Curated by Rievers, the event will feature two musical areas where musicians will play throughout the evening, layering notes and improvising melodies.

In addition to the great music, Friday Jazz patrons will also get to enjoy the Bob Thomas: This House is Mine exhibition.

André Rievers was born and raised in Brazil and has lived in the United States for the past thirty years. He began his career as a musician in college bars in North Carolina in 1995 and has since become a pioneer of the Brazilian music movement in Atlanta. He has recorded five albums and shared the stage with Marcelo Camera, Charlie Wooton, Rafa Pereira, and such international stars as Bacilos, Zé Renato, Khari Cabral Simmons, and India.Arie.

André has primarily been known as the front man for the wildly popular band Rua 6, with Juan Bonini, Vlamir Abbud, Rafa Pereira, Drew Dudley, and Cooper Tisdale. Rua 6 became one of Atlanta’s longest running acts (nearly fifteen years) and was voted best world music band for three consecutive years, marking a constant presence in music festivals including the Atlanta Jazz Festival. André’s musical influence derives from his love of his native Brazil and the strong cultural diversity conveyed through Brazilian music. His passion and innovative blending of African, American, and Caribbean rhythms further identify his eclectic nature.

André moved to Los Angeles in July of 2013 where he still shares his music with the world. He became part of the Tribo Records family in 2015.
