Live music with dining is always appreciated, but PY Steakhouse executive chef Ryan Clark is taking it to the next level with Trumpets & Tastes on Friday, June 9.

The dinner will feature a cocktail course, bread service course, and three wine-paired courses — all of which are paired with a different performance by trumpeter Jason Carder and jazz pianist Jeff Haskell.

Carder grew up in Arizona and toured with musicians such as Ray Charles and KC and the Sunshine Band.

Haskell is a retired music professor and coordinator of jazz studies at the University of Arizona. He has worked with various musicians such as Linda Ronstadt, Buck Owens, and Chet Baker.

Tickets are $85 per person. To make a reservation, call 855-765-7829.
