, Jeff Goldblum has another talent: acclaimed jazz pianist. Goldblum and his band of musician friends call themselves the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra (named after a family friend), performing regularly at Los Angeles' Rockwell Table and Stage. The group returns to Feinstein's at the Nikko following a sold-out engagement in 2015. Don't expect a staid piano recital, though; Goldblum's show is anything but. The setlist often feels completely extemporaneous and Goldblum himself usually appears before the show starts as his own opening act, interacting with the audience over movie trivia and such. Be sure to catch this San Francisco cabaret concert by the man The New York Times
describes as "the eternal hipster" with a "sly smile."
