Jackiem Joyner

Jackiem is proud to stand front and center on the main stage most weekends around the country. A quick glance at Joyner’s track record makes it clear that he continues to beat the odds in a tough and competitive music industry. “I love what I do, and I have passion”, Jackiem says. “I don’t care how hard things get, it’ll never stop me from doing what I love: playing the sax, writing music and stories, and performing live.”

After more than twelve (12) years as a recording artist, Jackiem continues to stand out with electrifying live performances and brilliant music productions. As a performer, he has toured over 30 countries and performed with the likes of the late George Duke, Marcus Miller, Keiko Matsui, Donnie McClurkin, Angela Bofill, Najee, Kirk Whalum, Peter White, and many, many more.

Tim Bowman

Renowned, chart-topping guitarist Tim Bowman has a way of making melding smooth jazz, gospel, soul, and blues seem effortless… as evidenced throughout his more than thirty (30) years in music.  The Detroit native, who grew up playing guitar in church, attended the College of Creative Studies, and served as the musical director for gospel luminaries the Winans before embarking on his solo career in 1987.

Recently, Bowman achieved his sixth #1 single with “Fireball,” as he continues to carve a niche for himself.  Progressing with each release, Bowman is slated to release “Smooth Vibes Volume One” this summer.

While Bowman is grateful for his accomplishments, he says his goal has always been to create music that genuinely connects with people. “I’ve always tried to make music that people could get lost into,” he says.  “I wanted to take a ride and tell a story and hope every melody is a melody that they can take home and whistle, something that grabs them and doesn’t let them go.”

He will make his debut at the Lexus Smooth Jazz Fest as one (1) of the headliners for the “Summer Breeze” Saturday All Star Jazz Showcase.

Lindsey Webster

“I am an artist… period,” declares Lindsey Webster.  “I have influences from any musical genres and have been influenced from many musical genres and have been influenced by them from a young age.  I believe in the power of music to empower and reach people on multiple levels.”  The stunning, charismatic, and amiable Lindsey Webster’s roots span the worlds of R&B, Pop, Rock, Jazz and beyond.  Her flawless range has been compared to Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and Minnie Ripperton, while her breezy and poetic songwriting is reminiscent of Sade. 

Webster’s refreshing approach has garnered two (2) Billboard #1’s and seven (7) Top 10’s on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart, making her the first vocalist in the format to garner #1 since the iconic Sade.

The gifted songstress will make her debut at the Lexus Smooth Jazz Fest with a Special Guest performance for the “Summer Breeze” Saturday All Star Jazz Showcase.
