For our Three Year Anniversary, and third and final September concert showcasing stellar trumpeters, Monks is proud to present Mike Sailors leading a quintet into our 4th year of listening room concerts!
New York-based trumpet player Mike Sailors has performed around the world in venues such as the Blue Note (New York, Tokyo, and Sapporo locations), Ronnie Scott’s, Porgy and Bess, Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola, The Jazz Standard, Smalls Jazz Club, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center; and has appeared at the Montreal, Detroit, EFG London, and Tokyo Blue Note Jazz Festivals. He has also been an active musician in Broadway orchestras, most notably as the Music Director/Contractor of Sleep No More. In addition to leading small groups and big bands, he has performed as a sideman with the Birdland Big Band, the Hot Sardines, the Gerald Wilson Orchestra and The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra.
An active composer and arranger, Mike has written for such luminaries as Dewey Redman, Dick Oatts, Sean Jones, Jimmy Cobb and Peter Bernstein. He has composed and recorded music for numerous commercial campaigns, as well as for TV and Film – most recently for the Netflix original series “Cannon Busters”. In 2019, Sailors joined the faculty of The University of Texas Butler School of Music, where he leads the Jazz Trumpet Studio and mentors young artists looking to build careers in music."

Featuring a 5'7" 1946 Knabe grand piano, handmade furniture, craft cocktails, and a strict whisper-policy, Monks began as a jazz listening room in an East Austin warehouse in September of 2016.
Continuing as a pop-up event series, unconventional performance spaces are paired with world-class musicians to create unique and exceptional experiences.
There are plenty of venues to have a conversation across a table, but Monks is not that place! Out of respect to our audiences and the musicians, we enforce a strict whisper-policy during performances.
