The Oscar and Emmy Awards nominee is best known for his iconic roles in Independence Day, The Big Chill, Jurassic Park, and, most recently, Thor: Ragnarok.

An accomplished pianist, Jeff Goldblum brings light and breezy to his audiences with the help of his band. The evening of June 2nd, the Jemison Concert Hall will be transformed into an intimate production in which Goldblum and his fellow musicians will deliver jazz standards while he riffs on his favorite artists and improvisational comedy. All tickets include an elegant pre-performance cocktail reception and seating for the performance.”
