Founded and led by guitarist Johan Harvey in 2010, Savannah's premier jazz-funk collective has quickly established itself as a high energy, grooving crew. Drawing from vintage and contemporary influences alike, they are forging an ebullient fusion of sinewy funk, gritty jazz, psychedelic rock and live hip-hop elements with a distinctly southern flavor, reminiscent of funk fusion acts like Herbie Hancock, Lost Tribe, Lettuce and Mother Funk Conspiracy. $5
Producers of the 4th Annual Uptown Charlotte Jazz Fest have announced Jazz/R&B musician and instrumentalist, Brian Culbertson, will perform during the two-night festival on Friday, June 21. Culbertson joins BWB, a jazz band named after the three members: guitarist Norman Brown, saxophonist Kirk Whalum and trumpeter Rick Braun.
Come join us as we celebrate an evening of music, improvisation and fellowship. It's an awesome opportunity to showcase, unite and bring attention to some of Charlotte's premier young jazz musicians. Join us in supporting a music tradition as we take a trip back to the days of "bee-bop" and experience on-the-spot improv. Come out and enjoy what the evening has to offer! $7
