I'll be in the Phoenix area for the Chandler Jazz Festival this weekend on Saturday April 2 with the fantastic Lamar Gaines on keys, Will Gaines on bass, Buddy Banks on drums, and Adam Armijo on guitar. I also have some great sponsors who came on board, such as Michael Lyles, owner and featured voice of Smoothjazzontherocks radio; Chuck Kelly, my friend and personal State Farm agent in AZ; Doug Hoxeng and Opa Life; and Chris Shea and Tromba Instruments.
This will be an awesome festival in South Phoenix area! Come on down and soak up the vibe..... April 2 at 6:15 pm. The Main Stage is located in Downtown Library Plaza - 178 E. Commonwealth Ave., south of Chandler Blvd and east of Arizona Ave. I'll be rocking my Tromba Hybrid Ultralight horns! Got good press too!
The following night on Sunday April 3, I will be at Opa Life 6-9 pm for a show with the well known guitarist Michael Powers. This one will be more intimate but alot of fun...
Ten Ten Tapas for our rollicking format there. Come welcome me back!
I have some unexpectedly fun gigs coming up at the Blue Martini, Sylvia Hotel, the Fairview, Sun Yat Sen, and Frankies. Follow me at http://gabrieljazz.com/shows.htm
