Every Week at Brasil
Sundays: Keith Karnaky and rotating mystery guests 8-11pm
Led by drummer Keith Karnaky, Sundays at Brasil features quality artists that 'want to enjoy themselves...play their hearts out...are happy... to play throwing their hearts to the wind'.
"We have in the past had a philosophy to hire the best Houston players....and invite them to play with less restrictions than usual....often free or spontaneous in composition. This philosophy continues at Brasil. Please join us and tell others so that this night remains healthy as a place to enjoy."
Mondays: Harry Sheppard 8pm
Legendary vibraphonist Harry Sheppard holds court at Brasil every Monday. He's an electrifying performer. Don't miss a chance to hear true mastery in action. No cover!
Tuesdays: I Am Mesmer 8-11pm
Geoffrey Muller at the helm manning the banjo, cigar box guitar, musical saw and vocals too, leads a group of merry men and women who create a sound like no other. Think Appalachia meets Brooklyn, Andrew Bird meets Monk.
Wednesdays: Keith Karnaky +2 8-11pm
For all you crazy jazz monkeys, Brasil has added another night of "free composition jazz" lead by Keith Karnaky on drums. He will bring two (excellent) special guests each week.
