Jazzfest 2018 was one for the books. The first weekend, Kumasi played an early slot at the Jazz and Heritage stage, and more and more people came to fill up the area in front of the stage over the course of our set. We received great feedback from the festival and from the audience. The sound on that stage was crystal clear and the technical team was super professional.
The last day of the fest, I performed with Glen David Andrews in the Blues Tent. We've played to a room of 5 people before, but yesterday we played in front of 5,000 people. He knows how to entertain. And he ALWAYS gets off the stage and sings into the crowd without a microphone.
Glen David Andrews band is: Eddie Christmas on drums, Ron Lockett on bass, Jesse Smith on guitar, Dave Specter on guitar, Gene Harding on percussion, Nick Etwell on trumpet, myself on saxophone, and LeAnne Binder on vocals.
