About Triple Treat — Piano Trios
A tradition started a decade ago by Press Room house pianist Ryan Parker, the “Triple Treat” night gives the audience a chance to hear three pianists in the piano trio format of piano/bass/drums.
The Sunday Night Jazz house band, including pianist Ryan Parker, will be joined by fellow pianists from Boston, Rusty Scott and Rebecca Cline, each playing a 40 minute set.
*** As a tip of the cap to the SJS and their work on behalf of jazz music in the Seacoast, we’re promoting this week’s concert as a special “Jazz Appreciation Night.” All new and current members of the SJS will receive 50% off tickets.

About Sunday Night Jazz
As legendary as The Press Room itself, the Sunday Night Jazz series has been a staple of the Seacoast jazz scene almost forty years. Born out of Press Room founder Jay Smith’s admiration for pianist Tommy Gallant, the weekly series boasted a house rhythm section of Gallant, Jim Howe, and Les Harris Sr. Across hundreds and hundreds of shows, the trio backed a rotating cast of local, regional, and nationally-recognized players.
For the past decade pianist Ryan Parker has carried the torch, bringing the storied tradition to a new generation of players and listeners, and showcasing some of the best jazz in the Seacoast at The Press Room every Sunday night. Current house band, featuring Ryan Parker, bassist Keala Kaumeheiwa, and drummer Les Harris. Jr., lays down the rhythm most evenings.
