The Hot Sardines featuring Nellie McKay with the Utah Symphony
“Simply phenomenal.” — THE TIMES (LONDON)
“Potent and assured” — The New York Times
“One of the best jazz bands in NY today.” — Forbes
Fueled by the belief that classic jazz feeds the heart and soul, The Hot Sardines are on a mission to make old sounds new again and prove that joyful music can bring people together in a disconnected world. Nellie McKay, known as a sharp and thoughtful artist lurking beneath the surface of a sunny and playful chanteuse, joins as vocalist for this concert also featuring the Utah Symphony.
The Hot Sardines—the mischief-makers of hot jazz who started out playing neo-speakeasies in Brooklyn—have had a whirlwind last few years. They have been featured at the Newport Jazz Festival and the Montreal Jazz Festival, have sold out NYC venues from Joe’s Pub to Bowery Ballroom and more than 150 tour dates from Chicago to London, and have released two albums on Universal Music Classics to critical raves and a No. 1 slot on the iTunes Jazz chart in the U.S. and internationally.
Due to a change in resort licensing, no outside alcohol will be permitted in Deer Valley’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. The venue will now offer expanded food and beverage offerings, including the sale of wine and beer.
The only official ticket outlets for this performance are Utah Symphony | Utah Opera or ArtTix. We strongly recommend you refrain from purchasing tickets via third party and fraudulent ticket sellers. These tickets are often sold at a price much higher than face value, and tickets sold through a third party may not carry the same service guarantees as those sold through official outlets. Please call 801-533-6683 with questions about ticketing outlets. Patrons who have been defrauded by third-party ticket sellers are strongly encouraged to file a complaint with the Utah Division of Consumer Protection.
Outside food & drink is permitted. Arrive early to picnic on the lawn prior to the concert. Concessions, including options from the grill and beverages, are for sale at the venue. Gourmet picnic baskets may be ordered in advance through Deer Valley.
Gates open approximately at 6 PM to the public. Arrive early for best seating options as the venue fills up quickly for most performances. The venue is a ski hill and may be difficult for some patrons to walk up. There are a few sections with limited views due to grading. Volunteers can point out the best seating locations available.
Tarps are not permitted on the hill in order to protect the grass.
Chairs are provided in the reserved and accessible seating sections. Outside chairs can be brought in and used anywhere in the General Admission section, but must be low chairs that are no higher than 9” from the base of the chair to the ground. Chairs are measured upon entrance, and those that do not meet the height restrictions will not be allowed into the venue. The hill is no longer separated into chairs vs blankets sections, so if you have a chair you may sit anywhere you’d like within the General Admission seating area. A limited number of chairs are available to rent at the venue. These will sell out early for popular performances.
Approximate performance time is 2 hours including one 20-minute intermission.
Prices are subject to change and increase $5 on the day of the performance.
Children 3 years of age and under are free in the General Admission section. No ticket is required.
Free parking is available at the venue. Carpooling is strongly recommended to help alleviate traffic congestion. You may need to walk up to 0.5 mile from the parking lot to the venue, but you may use the drop off zone in front of the ticket office if you have larger items, like coolers. Park City transit is available to pick up and drop off concertgoers at the Deer Valley Resort, if you would like to park in town and not have to worry about traffic in and out of the venue.
Temperatures drop significantly when the sun goes down. A blanket or jacket is highly recommended or can be purchased at the Gift Shops on the hill.
Artists and programs are subject to change. No refunds.
