Profusely creative, highly energetic, sensitive, and yet dynamic: These are a few words that describe the artistry of this extraordinary artist and bassist. From Gospel to RnB, Funk to Jazz, John’s versa-le style has been a key element for many artists, producers, and musical directors worldwide.



Known widely for playing electric, acoustic, or key bass, John can be found holding the groove on the local stages of Charlotte, NC, his hometown, or performing on main stages across the country and around the world with both National and International recording artists.

John has earned 2 Grammy certifications on EMI gospel projects “Oh Happy Day” - an All-Star Celebration (Best Traditional Gospel Album) and Heather Headley’s “Audience of One” (Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album.) Both won at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.

Profusely creative, highly energetic, sensitive, and yet dynamic are a few words that describe the artistry of this extraordinary bassist. 


Gabriel’s musical journey began in Lawrence, Massachusetts where Gabriel’s Dominican father, a percussionist, helped form his son’s earliest musical memories. Childhood would later find Gabriel discovering his own musicianship when the family moved to DeLand, Florida where Gabriel sang in church choirs and learned a range of instruments including flute, saxophone, and piano. Outside of church, Gabriel maintained a steady diet of his parents’ musical culture coupled with the pop and jazz icons of the day including Michael Jackson, Grover Washington Jr., Stevie Wonder, Toto, Chuck Mangione, and David Sanborn.


The path of the solo artist has seen Gabriel bring his inconceivable level of talent as a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and engineer to bear on a 2011 self-titled debut that occupied the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Charts for eleven weeks. Additionally, Gabriel’s debut release unseated Michael Buble’ from the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Jazz Charts.

PANDORA


Born in Belo Horizonte ( which means ‘beautiful horizon’), the third largest city in Brazil, Reinaldo Brahn picked up the family guitar at age 12, curiously strummed its chords, and was hooked. He taught himself traditional Musica Mineira, the rhythms of his native state Minas Gerais. Gaining experience playing and singing at festivals, bars and restaurants, he worked with the renowned Brazilian vocal group Soul Makube before embarking on a solo career. Reinaldo's experiences and collaboration with other musicians created his signature style which infuses classic Brazilian rhythms - Samba & Bossa Nova - with Funk and Jazz.


Reinaldo toured his original music throughout Brazil, and then brought his artistry to the United States. Arriving in Charlotte, North Carolina, in October 2007, he quickly introduced his Brazilian roots to the local scene. He creatively applies robust Brazilian style to popular American music with a truly inspiring result. Reinaldo's specialties include singing and playing authentic Brazilian music, including Musica Popular Brasileira (MPB) and classic Sambas, as well as performing American pop songs with a strong Brazilian influence. Veteran percussionist and producer Jim Brock refers to Reinaldo Brahn as "the new voice of Brazil".


CD releases:


• “Web Brasil”, released in 2000


• "Ao Vivo no Tocos", a collaborative effort released in 2004


• "A Procura da Razao acoustic”, released in 2009


• "Brasileiro Soul" released with Reference Recording label in 2011, collaborating with some of the finest


American musicians


• Coming soon – 2019 – Reinaldo’s first all-original, English album called “Impossible Land”!

Dee Lucas

WEBSITE
National recording artist and saxophonist Dee Lucas has been steadily growing his brand and fan base beginning with “Remembrance” in 2004. He Has Followed up with “Something to Ride 2” (2007), “Standing Room Only” (2010) which was composed and produced by several talented producers including Grammy winner Phil Davis, “Rebirth of the Smooth” (2012), “The Smooth Factor” (2014), “Going Deeper” (2016), & “The Sweet Spot” (2017).


As a runner-up in the 2007 Capital Jazz Festival Competition, Dee Lucas has opened for artists such as Boney James, Norman Brown, Ronnie Laws, Nnenna Freelon, Hugh Masekela, Gregg Karukas, Peter White, Nick Colionne, and Michael Franks. He has performed at festivals such as The Arizona Jazz Festival, The Jacksonville Jazz Festival, The Savannah Jazz Festival, and The Atlanta Jazz Festival.


In 1997, Lucas began his career playing as a sideman in a local band,” Between 9&7”. Subsequently Lucas formed his own contemporary jazz trio,” Xpressions”. They produced and recorded “Footprints”, which gained notoriety in regional markets. The record contained the classic hit “People Make the World Go Round”.


In 2004, Dee Lucas tapped into his entrepreneurial skills, and formed his record label, Mo Better Recordings.


His style, from a horn perspective, is different from that of many traditional smooth jazz artists in terms of melodic phrasing. Lucas mentions, "I like taking off on an uncharted path in music and Something to Ride 2 is a representation of the journey that I take each time I pick up the sax."  


In 2014 with “The Smooth Factor”, Lucas continued to season his contemporary jazz with R&B, and featured the work of such producing heavyweights as LA-based Lew Laing, Jr., and Atlanta-based and Grammy-Award winning Phil Davis.
