Phil Denny returns to Canton with a warm welcome. Denny began his full-time journey as a solo saxophonist in 2012. He debuted “Crossover” to the liking of a very loyal fan base. Currently, you can hear the upbeat original “Traffic Jam” on the Billboard Smooth Jazz charts. Denny has the song writing lyricism compared to veteran jazz performers, but energetic fresh style for today’s jazz scene.

Kimmie Horne’s beautiful alto voice is often compared to many female jazz legends. Kimmie takes her audience on a musical journey through time, with a blend of old and new classic jazz favorites and originals. Horne has toured all over the U.S., and most recently in Japan. She has earned the Casino entertainer of the year award many times over. Kimmie’s captivating show is a local favorite!

John E. Lawrence hails locally from Ypsilanti, MI as a jazz guitarist with a Motown sound. Lawrence is an accomplished musician recording six CDs and writing various instructional guitar books. John loves to pay tribute to those musical guitarists that have influenced him the most. Canton welcomes John and his incredible guitar playing back to the stage!

Demetrius “Krayon” Nabors grew up in Detroit heavily influenced by the music of his church. An accomplished pianist and composer, his arrangements reflect the diverse blend of gospel, blues and jazz he heard as a child. Nabors debuted his first release, “A Journey Within Part I” in 2012, and has earned international recognition for jazz composition. Enjoy the sounds of DKN’s incredible arrangements on the Canton Color Tour stage this summer!

Randy Scott is a master at the saxophone and as a songwriter. He produces for many jazz artists, and is the Co-Founder of the Timbre Entertainment Group. Randy’s 5th album “90 Degrees at Midnight” is arguably his best work. He has been awarded two gold records, two platinum, and one multi-platinum record. Randy loves to work the crowd and provides an incredible experience each time he appears at the Canton Color Tour Jazz Series!

Alexander Zonjic has an impressive background as a child guitarist, who did not learn to play the flute until the age of 21. He studied under the principal flutist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. His interest in jazz came in the ‘80’s as he toured internationally with Bob James and his band. Zonjic has been recording for over 3 decades with his eclectic jazz blend and other music genres. Zonjic loves to entertain and creates a crowd buzz each and every time he plays!
