Happy Hour with Joshua Paxton
Jul 30 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
At five Joshua Paxton received a little yellow toy piano that he banged on for years, playing along with TV jingles and music on the radio by ear. At 11 his parents gave into his pleas for piano lessons and bought him his first piano. Though classically trained, by the end of high school he saw his future in jazz. As an undergraduate he attended the University of Miami and Bowling Green University, then went on to study under Ellis Marsalis at the University of New Orleans, earning a master’s degree in Jazz Piano. His diverse musical background ranges from avant-garde jazz to stints with major label rock bands. Currently, he is focusing on his unique approach to New Orleans Rhythm and Blues piano style.

Guitarist and singer-songwriter Tom Leggett is a veteran of the New Orleans music scene, having worked steadily for nearly two decades as a freelance guitarist in a wide range of styles, performing alongside world-class musicians in the Crescent City and on the road. Since the 2013 release of his critically acclaimed debut solo album Spinnin’ My Wheels, Tom has emerged as a successful singer-songwriter and bandleader, headlining clubs all over New Orleans and around the Southeast. “Great songs… and a rhythmically sophisticated band,” says Offbeat magazine. “Leggett’s versatility as a guitarist really shines.”
