LOS ANGELES, CA (June 2022) – The Grammy-nominated pianist and composer, Emmy Award-winning TV host, and host of the nationally-syndicated Intelligence for Your Life radio show, John Tesh will perform an intimate, jazz-inspired concert at Feinstein’s at Vitello’s, Studio City (4349 Tujunga Ave) Friday and Saturday July 22-23.
John will perform with his 8-piece, big band-style jazz ensemble, featuring longtime bassist Tim Landers (Red Rocks), flugelhornist and trumpeter Tony Guerrero, and saxophonist Mark Visher.
I am looking forward to attending his concert on Friday, July 22. So don’t hesitate, order your tickets now!
Tickets are available at Tesh Music.
The performance, named Songs and Stories from the Grand Piano, will take the audience on a musical journey through John’s 30-year career, which so far encompasses seven public television specials, eight million albums sold, four certified Gold records, two Grammy nominations, a string of #1 radio hits, a Keyboard Magazine Performance award, music composer for the Barcelona and Atlanta Olympic Games on NBC, and John’s composing what has been hailed as perhaps the greatest sports tv theme ever written, “Roundball Rock,” for the NBA.
The Hollywood Times had the opportunity and honor to catch up with John Tesh to talk about his upcoming concert, his career and a few laughs along the way!

Throughout the show, John will shed some light on the pivotal moments in his life and career – such as going from homeless to anchoring the CBS News in New York, why he left a decade-long dream gig on national television to pursue music, the story behind that infamous Red Rocks Live taping in the driving rain, and how he overcame his recent battle with cancer. The show will also include a special appearance by John’s son and radio show co-host, Gib Gerard.
