Palladium: Wayne Shorter Tribute in the Theater

August 7 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Join Palladium in the Birdland Theater for a special event tributing the music of Wayne Shorter, with guest artists each evening!

Palladium presents their very first 3-night run at Birdland Theater, Friday August 5th thru Sunday August 7th, with two shows nightly at 7 & 9:30 pm. This run will feature 6 unique sets of Wayne Shorter’s music with no repeated songs.

Palladium is a Wayne Shorter repertory group founded by producer Jesse Markowitz. Jesse has worked for Wayne since 2015 running his social media, and started Palladium in 2018 as a way to help spread Wayne’s massive audience to the emerging musicians on the New York scene. Palladium has released two albums, both of which include spoken word cameos from Wayne himself; “2020” features over 30 musicians in a variety of settings, and “Don’t Look Back” focuses on a single quintet featuring the legendary Victor Lewis on drums. Both are available on Bandcamp: https://palladium825.bandcamp.com/album/dont-look-back
