Austin O BRIEN


For those who know the artist and showman, Austin O'Brien goes on stage with the obsession to win over the public. And with the rage of a boxer, he deploys all his energy to knock the public off their feet. The musicians that surrounds the petulant Irish jazz man are of the highest standtard and he leads them with style and panache.

Ausitn follows the tradition of swing jazz and is influenced by Harry Connick Jr, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and pianists Monty Alexander, Oscar Peterson and Omar Sosa, strong personalities and major players, according to Austin, they all have a great sense of music and showmanship.

Over the last 10 years Austin produced 4 albums and a “Live DVD”. The result of his effort lead Austin to play regularly in jazz clubs and festivals nationally and internationally. There is no shortage of ambition with his various formations: trio, quartet, quintet. But above all Austin is a jazzman showman and a real entertainer, a man driven by the desire to succed and his vital energy “the spirit of the fighting irish” that always surprises his public. This mixed with his natural comic talent give a perfect cocktail for a magical show. We are programmig and taking bookings for Austin O’BRIEN for 2013. Austin can be in your part of the world with his musicians and also playing with the best of the local talents

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
