& Rick Braun
featuring Kenny Lattimore & Maysa
Friday, August 21st - 7:30pm
in The Grove - Red Lion Hotel Woodlake, Sacramento

► A lot of 'Friends' in the Grove!
Over the decades, the saxophone has opened numerous doors for Koz. He’s played with such artists as Burt Bacharach, Ray Charles, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Shelby Lynne, Kenny Loggins, U2, Barry Manilow, Michael McDonald, Luther Vandross and Rod Stewart. Born and raised in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, Dave initially just saw the saxophone as a way to help him gain entry into his big brother’s band. What began as a ploy became a lifelong obsession. After graduating from UCLA, Koz decided to become a professional musician. Within weeks of that decision, he was recruited as a touring member of Bobby Caldwell’s band. It was during this time that Koz befriended keyboardist Jeff Lorber, who invited Koz to come play on one of his tours. That stint was followed by a fourteen-month tour with pop singer Richard Marx. He’s become a platinum-selling artist with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is also known as a humanitarian, entrepreneur, radio host and instrumental music advocate.

Chris Botti

Saturday, September 12th - 7:30pm
in The Grove - Red Lion Hotel Woodlake, Sacramento

► Fall in Love in the Grove!
" With his finely etched features and piercing green eyes, trumpeter Chris Botti combines matinee idol looks with the simmering lyricism of an expert balladeer. The breakout instrumental star of the past decade, he's collaborated with a cross-section of A-list musicians, from Yo-Yo Ma and Herbie Hancock to Vince Gill and Mark Knopfler. But the secret to his success as a performer is his discerning ear for talent as a bandleader." Andrew Gilbert - San Jose Mercury News

Starting with his 2004 Jazz CD When I Fall In Love, and continuing with acclaimed recordings including To Love Again, Italia, Chris Botti In Boston, and Impressions, trumpeter Chris Botti's stellar parade of albums have firmly established him as the world's largest selling jazz instrumentalist. He received a Grammy for "Best Pop Instrumental Album" in 2013, and has had four #1 albums on Billboard's Jazz Albums charts.

Friday, August 14th - 7:30pm
in The Grove - Red Lion Hotel Woodlake, Sacramento

► You won't believe what a Ukelele can sound like!
Consider the humble ukulele. It’s an adaptation of a stringed instrument that traveled with Portuguese immigrants who came to work in the sugar cane fields of Hawaii. Islanders made the “machete” their own, mixing external influences of classical European music and Spanish guitar with Hawaiian songs. Native Hawaiians renamed the little machete the ukulele and it’s become synonymous with Hawaiian music and Hawaiian culture.

Jake Shimabukuro comes from that same process of mixing both island and outside influences, both modern and historical. He’s combined the qualities of a long line of virtuoso ukulele players with modern rock musicians to create a sound that’s uniquely his own but still firmly grounded in Hawaiian tradition. Known for his energetic strumming on the ukulele, Jake’s performance incorporates elements of thoughtful, sophisticated arrangements to spontaneous, improvised passages. In addition to his original compositions, his repertoire includes Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, Schubert’s Ave Maria and Cohen’s Hallelujah.

Saturday, October 3rd - 7:30pm
in The Grove - Red Lion Hotel Woodlake, Sacramento

► Future Soul in the Grove
4-time GRAMMY nominee and multi-platinum selling sax-man Boney James continues his artistic evolution with the dynamic futuresoul. Fusing his love for vintage soul music with his mastery of modern production, Boney has created another genre-bending work following on the heels of his 2014 GRAMMY nominated album The Beat.

“The forms I’m working with are rooted in my early influences,” says James, dropping names like King Curtis, the Stylistics and Earth, Wind & Fire. “But recently I’ve been listening to contemporary artists like Tinashé, Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding, and I’m inspired by the sound of their recordings. The production is so cool and evocative. As I started the new record, I was in my backyard studio messing around with this “gearhead” stuff I’ve collected. Ideas started flowing and it sounded like modern soul music to me. I thought to myself, ‘What is this?’… And then it hit me: ‘futuresoul.’” ► more
