- Boney James with Norman Brown & Lindsey Webster 10 add'l spots available
Come and join us for a night of jazz. Boney James says, “I’m fighting the good fight to be my own artist and not be pigeonholed.” “With a record’s title I always try to find something that will communicate the feeling I get when I listen to it. The feeling I get with this music is a sense of sincerity and intimacy. The word ‘honestly’ really reflects how I aspire to live my life and create my music. One of the great things about music is how powerful it is. It can totally transport people. These are interesting times we are living in and the one thing I can do with the skills that I have is to make music that evokes a feeling and takes people somewhere… to do what I can to try and make the world a more pleasant place.
