RLAD and Christopher Boa: Sax at the Edge

Get down, tap your toes and enjoy! Christopher Boa has his roots in reggae but quickly evolved his sound to include funk, afrobeat and jazz. With a long list of local and regional projects under his belt including Bump Foundation, Afromassive, Sun Hop Fat and Moogot2, he is is currently writing a new Album for Sun Hop Fat as well as his own acid jazz ep. He has has played with the likes of Seun Kuti, Fred Wesley, Ray White (Zappa) George Porter Junior, Brian Haas, Lettuce, and toured with Monophonics, and Polyrhythmics. He has a distinct voice both lyrical and at times full of passion emotion and edge- always searching, reaching for that moment when he disappears and only the music remains. RLAD is Tim Randles, piano, Ken Lawrence, electric bass, Mike LaBolle, drums and Doug Marcum, guitar.

Doors open at 6:30 pm
$10-20, Suggested donation
