BANDS FOR JUNE 23:
Headlining the night will be the John Dillard Group. John Dillard is described by many as the “bassist of the stars” and “one of the funkiest”. This 2-time Grammy Award winning bassist is known for his heart-stopping, spirit-moving, mind bending musical expression. Musicians include: John Dillard on bass, Gena Chambers on vocals, Howard McNair Jr. on keys, and Quan “MoonLyfe” Dillard on drums.
Funk Rush offers an intense mix of old school funk, rock, occasionally reggae and jazz. Borne out of the long-term musical relationship between Scott Newell and Reggie Dennis, together they've amassed a unique blend of original and stylized covers. "Jazz is the teacher, Funk is the preacher!"
We’ll also have the JazzArts Youth All-Stars to showcase the future stars of jazz right here in Charlotte. This group includes Gustavo Cruz, Samuel David, & Olivia Ratliff
