    HOLIDAY JAZZ

    Date: DECEMBER 16, 2018

    Time:  1-3 PM

    Location: St. Charles Towne Center, Waldorf, MD

    Details: Enjoy the cool jazz sounds of John G. Lewis while you shop for holiday gifts this season. John G. Lewis is a guitarist, singer, song writer, and bit of a mad-scientist. John was raised in South Bend, IN and began studying guitar while in high school. After graduating from high school he moved to Southern California and began his professional music career as a soloist, singing and accompanying himself on guitar in a variety of venues in and around San Diego. Jealous of the keyboard players who could play left handed bass, he tinkered with and explored various approaches to incorporating a low bottom-end on the guitar. By integrating the guitar/synthesizer, John ultimately developed an innovative approach to the guitar to create an unbelievably full sound. Combing these elements with his silky smooth voice and an eclectic repertoire of Jazz, R&B, and Brazilian grooves - which he performs in English, French, and Portuguese - John’s sound is described as soulful, jazzy and cool. http://www.jlewismusic.com
