496 West

Since debuting in 2008, the band “496 West” has opened for a number of unforgettable and inspirational artists including: the legendary Kirk Whalum, soulful balladeer Phil Perry, jazz stalwarts Nick Colionne, Grammy- nominated Gerald Albright, saxman Euge Groove, smooth jazz guitarist Tim Bowman and international Grammy- nominated keyboardist, Bob Baldwin, the electrifying saxophonist Eric Darius and jazz guitarist/entertainer Nick Colionne.

On Valentine's Day they had a ball opening for Larry Braggs, former lead vocalist for Tower of Power.

Performing their own brand of contemporary smooth jazz, R&B, soul, a sprinkling of the blues and of course, gospel jazz, 496 West provides instrumental performances with a variety of combo’s including–music for relaxing, music for listening, and party music–from slow to jam.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
