EUGE GROOVE

“I never really know what song is going to come next… thankfully it just comes to me,” confides chart-topping saxophonist, composer and producer Euge Groove, who has scored close to a dozen #1 hits on the Contemporary Jazz Charts. A favorite on radio and the international touring circuit, Euge Groove has garnered a devout following with his irresistible mix of danceable grooves, mind-bending hooks, R&B infused melodies and inspired solos. Having collaborated with everyone from Tina Turner Elton John and Bonnie Raitt to Tower of Power and Aaron Neville, Euge Groove is never short on inspiration.

He is excited to be returning back to the Lexington-Bluegrass Region of the commonwealth of Kentucky, after making his solo debut at the Smooth Jazz Fest in 2009. This year he will "Groove On" at the Lexus Smooth Jazz Fest with Avery Sunshine... for a performance guaranteed to be EUGE and full of Sunshine!

AVERY SUNSHINE

There is something edibly scrumptious about the music of Avery Sunshine. The #1 smash hit single “Call My Name” (an astounding 8 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Urban AC chart!) from her breakthrough album, The SUNroom, established the dynamic singer/songwriter/pianist Avery*Sunshine as one of the hottest new stars on the R&B scene.

Her incredibly powerful live performances have won her legions of dedicated fans from coast to coast. Now, with the release of her inspired new album, Twenty Sixty Four, Avery*Sunshine continues to take the R&B world by storm. Led by the hit bound first single “Come Do Nothing,” Twenty Sixty Four builds on the momentum ignited by The SUNroom, filling a void for those starved for authentic, message driven soul anthems!

MIKE WADE & THE MIGHTY GROOVERS

What do you call reality? Webster’s dictionary defines reality as “the fact or state of being real or genuine.” Mike Wade’s definition of reality is “to put God first for then my music is blessed, no matter what style, be it classical, gospel, jazz, hip-hop, or go go.” Mike Wade can blow his trumpet in hard bop style, hence his nickname “Shorty Bop”, and he can also play funky grooves that make you want to swing.

Mike Wade has been described as "among the legacy of great trumpeters," "a very exciting and creative jazz trumpeter," and "a trumpet player not to miss.”
