Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse to open in Royal Sonesta on March 21

Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse at the Royal Sonesta Hotel on Bourbon Street officially opens Saturday, March 21, with its namesake trumpeter leading an all-star band. The club, in the former home of the Mystick, will initially present entertainment Thursday through Saturday, with plans to expand to four and, eventually, seven nights.

After the success of the Mystick's "Women in Jazz" series last year, Royal Sonesta general manager Alfred Groos started considering ways to grow the nightclub business further. "I wanted to take it to another level, to associate with somebody of Irvin's caliber," Groos said.

Call 504.586.0300 or 553.2270 for reservations to the March 21 opening gala with Irvin Mayfield, pianist David Torkanowsky, bassist Neal Caine, saxophonist Ed Petersen and drummer Jaz Sawyer.
