The Nash has negotiated a discounted parking price for parking during performances! Patrons attending shows may purchase 3 hour parking for $6.00, which is a 33% discount from the price available to the general public. Parking is in the garage directly across 1st Street with the entrance about mid-block.
You can purchase the parking as a retail add-on when purchasing a ticket online through our website or at the box office upon arrival at The Nash. Whether you purchased online in advance or plan to buy at the box office, park in the garage and be sure to bring the parking ticket issued at the garage entrance. We will attach a bar code sticker to the blank end of your parking ticket. Upon leaving the garage, scan the parking garage bar code first and The Nash bar code second to trigger the discount. If you have parked for more than 3 hours, you will be charged for the additional time at the standard rate of $3.00 per hour.

The Nash Creates THE JAZZ BEACON AWARD
to Honor Legendary Jazz Musicians
Lewis Nash Presents First Jazz Beacon Award To Bassist Ron Carter
Saxophonist Benny Golson To Be Honored April 7
(Phoenix, Ariz.) The living legends of jazz, veteran musicians who have achieved greatness in performing jazz are now being honored at The Nash with the creation of The Jazz Beacon Award. Conceived by Lewis Nash as a way to recognize the important role and contributions these musicians have given to the world of jazz, The Nash inducted its first honoree, bassist Ron Carter, during his March 23rd appearance at the downtown Phoenix jazz club.
Carter had arrived in Phoenix to perform as part of “The Trio,” for the “Japan-Jazz Connection” concert, joining Takeshi Yamaguchi (guitar) and Lewis Nash (drums) for a concert of selections from their The Trio II Live in Osaka recording. In front of a sold-out crowd, Lewis Nash presented the award to Carter and unveiled a portrait created for him by Phoenix artist Abe Zucca.
Legendary saxophonist and NEA Jazz Master Benny Golson will be the next recipient honored with The Nash Jazz Beacon Award during his concert at The Nash on April 7 at 3 pm.
“The world of jazz is a rich place because of these incredible musicians, who play with such artistry and give so generously to their fellow musicians and jazz lovers around the globe. We wanted to recognize not only their contributions to music, but pay tribute to their status as living legends for the art form. For me personally, it is a true privilege and honor to perform with them, to hear their music, and most of all, to call them friends.” – Lewis Nash.
The Nash Jazz Beacon Award recipients will be displayed with honor at The Nash, 110 Roosevelt Rd, with future honorees to be announced at a later date.
