“All it takes is one time. You see Akina Adderley onstage and you instantly fall for her dynamism and her superstar performance. You want a show? This lady delivers with finesse.” –Laurie Gallardo, KUT 90.5 FM
“Jazz is in Akina Adderley’s blood, and it flows with a warm mix of old-school soul and R&B.” –Margaret Moser, The Austin Chronicle
"If you think they don't make R&B divas like they used to, pick up Say Yes and let Akina Adderley prove you wrong." -Mark Deming, AllMusic.com
“Remember when music was fun and wasn't just an exercise in trying to make chart-topping hits and crafting a flash-in-the-pan image? Akina Adderley certainly does.” –Stewart Smith, The Tyler Morning Telegraph
"With her horn-propelled local octet, Adderley delivers old-school R&B with uncommon panache, separating [her] from the recent soul revival." –Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle

Monks is a pop-up jazz listening room that hosts a variety of acts at Topology. Featuring a 5’7″ 1946 Knabe Grand Piano, backline, custom made furniture, bar menu, and whisper-policy, this experience is aiming straight for the small jazz listening rooms of NYC and beyond.
There are plenty of venues to have a conversation across a table, but Monks is not that place! As such, we enforce a strict whisper-policy during performances out of respect to our audience and the performers.
Nightly membership to enjoy the event is $20, allowing you access to the music as well as complimentary top shelf beverages including:
Texas Whiskey / Old Fashioned’s
Tito’s+JuiceLand Aguas Frescas
Texas Botanicals Gin Martinis

Local Austin Coffee
*Beverages are complimentary to the public! Donations are for Artists, Servers, The Venue, and Future Monks Events!
