Being musical is being inspired!   Music can sustain you. It comes from the care of your being. That’s the idea behind the Ensembles.

From simple children’s parties to the most sophisticated dance orchestras and jazz concerts, Jim Tenbensel Music can do it all.

"What’s the Maurer magic? A mix of wit, sophistication, humor and keeping it fresh."
– Minnpost

This merry band of “genre-bending eclectics” (Jazz 88-FM) has been entertaining sold-out houses at the Dakota with their annual holiday show since 2000. Taking the stage by storm with their irreverent style and sly musical humor, the George Maurer Group will bring you an evening filled with witty stage banter, clever musicianship, and surprising twists on holiday classics—think Thelonious Monk meets “Sleigh Ride,” the Beatles’ “Drive My Sleigh,” Herbie Hancock’s “Driftin’” ala “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and more!

Please note: the link to this streaming show will be emailed to you 24 hours before the concert and again, one hour before the concert start time.

Jim's ​schedule 

At the present time, I am not working anywhere. Due to the COVID-19 virus, all the engagements I had been hired for have been canceled. I look forward to returning later in the summer. I will keep you posted.
