Josh Paxton has been one of the premiere pianists in the New Orleans music scene for the past twenty-some years. Originally from Cincinnati, he moved to the Crescent City in the mid-‘90s to study jazz piano with Ellis Marsalis Jr. at the University of New Orleans, and quickly found himself in demand as a solo performer and sideplayer. He has since performed and recorded with such diverse groups as The Afghan Whigs, Big Chief Bo Dollis & The Wild Magnolias, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Cosmic Krewe, Maria Muldaur and Dr. John. 
A disciple of the Bayou Maharajah, Fess and Henry Butler, he’s also transcribed the music of James Booker and Professor Longhair for sheet music publication. In addition to regular solo performances, Josh can frequently be seen playing with Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, vocalists Debbie Davis and Lena Prima, as well as the  bouzouki / keyboard duo, ZoüKeys.

Tonight, Josh presents one of his intimate solo piano concerts.
