Since emerging in 2012, saxophonist Phil Denny has made great strides in the smooth jazz scene. The four-time Billboard charting, independent artist has been described as a passionate and soulful player, captivating audiences with his smooth yet energetic style. Friends and fans alike often describe him as a people’s musician having developed and maintained a very active and ever-growing fan base even before the release of his internationally recognized debut CD, Crossover.
Eric Leone has two fundamental characteristics that best describe his music, the elements of Love and Life. Love…the emotion that touches everyone’s heart and Life...that which stimulates the mind. Eric is a graduate of the Hartford Conservatory School of Music, where he studied Jazz Guitar and is an accomplished song writer and producer. Eric released his first CD, Outstanding in 2003 which was met with much excitement in smooth jazz radio and among his fans. Many of the songs released from this CD are still being played daily on smooth jazz radio stations around the world.
Tickets are $30 and it's a limited seating event.
