JC absolutely channels JB, and the band is smokin’ This will be three sets of a slammin’ full band! In addition to JC channeling JB and Willie Sordillo hittin’ the Maceo Parker role on alto, we’ve got the fabulous Danny Heath (direct from New Orleans) on trombone, JC’s indefatigable brother Miles in the drum chair, the soulful and smooth Lawrence Peters on guitar,the ever-present and perfect bassist for this gig, Doug Rich, and a hot keyboardist. Rumor has it that we may have a backup singer/dancer on this gig as well.
