Dwan Bosman’s Birthday Bash sets the tone for the evening as he displays a collage of Jazz forces, flirting with Hard Bop, Bebop, Funk and Free Jazz with attributes of a Straight-Ahead Jazz performance. 

Dwan Bosman

LISTEN


WEBSITE 
Dwan Bosman began courting the saxophone at the age of 15, inspired by a deep rooted tutelage reaching back to his grandfather.


Initially playing the clarinet & bass clarinet at the age of 12, his interest was to be classically trained, but at the age of 15, listened to “A Love Supreme” by John Coltrane and became infatuated with straight ahead Jazz.


Charlie Parker, Lloyd Smith, Sonny Stitt, The Bosman Twins, Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, Grover Washington Jr, Miles Davis, Kenny Garrett, David Sanborn and GiGi Gryce have been his most poignant influences molding the vivid sound he produces.


This infatuation turned love affair with straight ahead Jazz continues, nevertheless he is limitless and versatile in his talent with an eclectic mix of genres played. His album “Sax Attack” released in 2013 exhibits his versatility and his single “For Eternity” released in 2015 is an “unsung” allegiance to love and the union of two people for a lifetime.        


​Dwan Bosman is the embodiment of live performance, having done so for 25+ years across the nation and abroad, performing is like breathing to this soulful saxophonist and his showmanship is remarkable. Performing regularly at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for a program entitled “The Sounds of Southern Hospitality” his passion resonates to everyone he serenades whether a disgruntled infant, all the way through to the most mature of crowds.


With his exceptional ability to play and entertain any gender, age group, race and nationality, he has established himself as a benchmark in the city of Atlanta as a premier saxophonist.


Whether functioning as part of the cast of a corporate band, performing with a headliner, or being the headliner himself, he has traveled all paths of the musician walk. Dwan Bosman will take you on a musical excursion not to be forgotten.

Dwan Bosman

LISTEN


WEBSITE 
Dwan Bosman began courting the saxophone at the age of 15, inspired by a deep rooted tutelage reaching back to his grandfather.


Initially playing the clarinet & bass clarinet at the age of 12, his interest was to be classically trained, but at the age of 15, listened to “A Love Supreme” by John Coltrane and became infatuated with straight ahead Jazz.


Charlie Parker, Lloyd Smith, Sonny Stitt, The Bosman Twins, Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, Grover Washington Jr, Miles Davis, Kenny Garrett, David Sanborn and GiGi Gryce have been his most poignant influences molding the vivid sound he produces.


This infatuation turned love affair with straight ahead Jazz continues, nevertheless he is limitless and versatile in his talent with an eclectic mix of genres played. His album “Sax Attack” released in 2013 exhibits his versatility and his single “For Eternity” released in 2015 is an “unsung” allegiance to love and the union of two people for a lifetime.        


​Dwan Bosman is the embodiment of live performance, having done so for 25+ years across the nation and abroad, performing is like breathing to this soulful saxophonist and his showmanship is remarkable. Performing regularly at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for a program entitled “The Sounds of Southern Hospitality” his passion resonates to everyone he serenades whether a disgruntled infant, all the way through to the most mature of crowds.


With his exceptional ability to play and entertain any gender, age group, race and nationality, he has established himself as a benchmark in the city of Atlanta as a premier saxophonist.


Whether functioning as part of the cast of a corporate band, performing with a headliner, or being the headliner himself, he has traveled all paths of the musician walk. Dwan Bosman will take you on a musical excursion not to be forgotten.

ANDRE FERRERI


Launching his career after a year at Berklee College of Music touring, New York born, Charlotte NC based guitarist Andre Ferreri has a resume as expansive, freewheeling and genre transcendent as his compositional and playing style. Over the decades, he’s worked professionally with an array of pop, soul and jazz legends.


For 12 years, he led contemporary jazz ensemble Airstream as the main outlet for his eclectic original material and he is first call guitarist for his hometown Charlotte Symphony. His compositions have appeared on TV shows, in films and commercials and for years he produced soundalike tracks for the karaoke company Sound Choice. In 2008, Ferreri co-founded Laser Records, a label created to help musicians promote their music. 


For all these vast accomplishments, nothing thrills Ferreri more – or makes him feel more creative, expressive and vibrant - than when he gets back to the traditional jazz and swing that shifted his sensibilities early on from 70’s classic rock to modern and traditional jazz. His perfectly titled latest album Numero Uno – attributed to the Euro sounding Andre Ferreri Quintetto - brings him full circle and is the culmination of the past four-five years of his life. He laid the foundation for his full-fledged return to traditional jazz with his 2015 album Tributes, which included a song dedicated to Joe Pass.


Other longtime associates that form the core “Quintetto” include acoustic bassist Anna Stadlman and pianists Mark Stallings, Phillip Howe and Sean Higgins. Stallings also plays the Hammond B-3 on the barnburner “Uptown Swing.”Ferreri worked for the first time with Kobie Watkins, a well-traveled world class drummer who has skinned for everyone from Kurt Elling and Arturo Sandoval to Sonny Rollins. Ferreri chose to name his group the Italian version of “quintet” because the project has a Euro-Italian feel to it and he wanted to pay homage to both his heritage and the inspiration he found in Italy.


Growing up, Ferreri – who picked up the guitar at age 9 and got serious around 16 – started jazz via everyone from John McLaughlin and Miles Davis to Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Joe Pass and others. After Berklee – where he studied composition and arranging and went to school with future influential guitarists Kevin Eubanks and the late Emily Remler – he hit the road to the tune of 250 dates a year for four years. Later he started gigging and recorded his first vinyl album Projections with Dixie Dregs keyboardist T Lavitz. His next group in the 80’s, an intricate fusion ensemble called Flight 108, recorded four more albums that featured guests like Dave Valentin and Bill Evans. Ferreri’s background includes work with hundreds of legendary artists and custom music for shows on the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet and countless others. Other albums he recorded under his own name: A Place in The Shade (2004), Spirit Feel (2010), Tributes (2015) and Airstream-Relatively Speaking (2018)

He has numerous recordings to his credit, and has performed at jazz festivals from the Jacksonville Jazz Festival (FL)…to the Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland)…not to mention, a 3-year stint at the world famous Bellagio in Las Vegas, as the house band, leading his NFQ, where he performed for actress Julia Robert’s surprise 35th birthday party.


Noel was named Best Jazz Musician by Charlotte Magazine in 2006 and in 2009 and was named “Best Musical Director”, by the Metrolina Theatre Association of the Carolinas.
