Husky Shows Summer Jazz Series 2018
Saturday, May 12th – Nathan East & Jazmin Ghent
Veteran bass player Nathan East will entertain you with his unique style. His latest album Reverence includes the hits Love’s Holiday and Serpentine Fire – Both EWF classics.
You should also check out Moondance, featuring Michael McDonald.
Jazmin Ghent is also on the bill. Ghent is a relative newcomer to the scene, and she has some really nice tracks.
Saturday, June 16th – Acoustic Alchemy & Damien Escobar
Acoustic Alchemy has been entertaining audiences for about 30 years. They have that fusion style that cannot be duplicated. With a catalog of 21 albums to choose from, you know they will thoroughly entertain you.
Check out Mr. Chow, one of my favorites.
Damien Escobar will open the show, and I know you will enjoy his violin stylings.
Friday, July 27th – Dave Koz & The Summer Horns
The summer Horns are back, and this time the lineup includes Gerald Albright, Richard Elliot, Rick Braun and Aubrey Logan.
That sounds really good to me!
Check out Always There off the first album – Live!
Saturday, September 8th – Boney James & Avery*Sunshine
In September, Boney James will hit the stage. Perhaps the top dog in Contemporary Jazz, James has been producing hits since 1992, starting with the Trust album. Since then, he has sold over 3 million albums. His music is more R&B and you can hear his tracks just about anywhere.
Avery*Sunshine is also on the bill for a special night of Soul. She is one of the R&B divas on there scene today.
Check out James and Sunshine with Honestly, the title track from James’ latest album.
