Provo venues will host various musical events this Valentine’s Day to make the holiday special for everyone. Included are a Valentine’s ball, jazz night and an indie rock performance.

Valentine’s Ball at Provo Library

The Valentine’s Ball is an annual tradition at the Provo Library including dinner, dancing and live music. Erika Hill, community relations coordinator at the Provo City Library, said the event takes the stress out of Valentine’s Day.

“The Provo City Library Valentine’s Ball makes Valentine’s Day so easy,” Hill said. “Tickets include a catered dinner, live music from CB Jazz and a rose for each lady. Whether patrons choose to come as a couple or as a group of friends, everyone leaves happy.”

The Valentine’s Ball will be held at the Provo City Library on Friday, Feb. 14, at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 each and are available for purchase until Feb. 11 at the Provo City Library Events Office or by calling 801-852-7691.

Jazz is for Lovers at Muse Music Café

This show will feature classic jazz and love songs covered by Natasha Watts and the Heartbreakers. Natasha Watts is a solo artist but occasionally performs with a small jazz combo, in this case, the Heartbreakers.

The cafe at Muse will reward guests with giveaways during the show, as well as running Valentine’s Day specials on food to encourage guests to arrive early and grab a bite to eat. Recommended dress is semi-formal. Think 1950s.

Watts said the concert will differ from a typical jazz concert by taking the audience back in time.

“This isn’t going to be a normal concert,” Watts said. “It’ll take you back to a classier time when men wore suspenders and women talked like Grace Kelly.”

Jazz is for Lovers will be held Thursday, Feb. 13, at the Muse Music Cafe. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the show starts at 8:30 p.m.

Valentine’s Show at Velour Live Music Gallery

Indie-rock band VanyLadyLove will play at Velour Live Music Gallery with Cameron the Public, Toy Bombs and Oceaner. This show will double as a Valentine’s concert and an EP release of VanLadyLove’s “Love Matter.”

“We’re going to make sure that this is the fantastic end to a great date night for couples all around Utah,” said Steele Saldutti, bass/keys player for VanLadyLove. “Nothing more romantic than snuggling up next to your special someone, listening to our lead singer Travis woo you. I know it gives me the chills, and I’m in the band.”

The show is Friday, Feb. 14, at Velour Live Music Gallery at 8 p.m. Pre-sale tickets are available for $8.
