February 22, 2013

Thursday Night Concert Series

Urban Jazz Coalition has been one of the hottest live performance ensembles on the contemporary jazz scene for some time now, and they have created a major buzz   on the national smooth jazz festival circuit over the past several years.

“UJC” has electrified audiences across North America while performing their energetic blend of Soulful Jazz/ R&B at many of the nation’s most prominent festivals and concert venues including The Seabreeze Jazz Festival, Jazz Fest West, The Capital Jazz Fest, The Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival, and numerous other prestigious concert venues.

In addition to the notoriety “UJC” has earned as a self contained group, they have also become one of the most in-demand back up groups in the smooth jazz genre, having performed as sidemen for a number of top smooth jazz artists including Peter White, Nick Colionne, Jeff Lorber, Paul Taylor, Marion Meadows, Brian Simpson, “Shilts”, Jackiem Joyner, Cindy Bradley, Tom Braxton, Ken Navarro, Althea Rene’, Oli Silk, Nils, Jessy “J”, and U-Nam.
