Gerald Chavis Gerald Chavis

Gerald Chavis is a world-class trumpeter in the Philadelphia, PA area. You may see him perform in a multitude of venues including churches, wedding receptions, concerts, jazz festivals, and more along with the finest bands in the region. His credits include performing and/or recording with many national and regional acts including Mick Jagger, Phyllis Hyman, The Dells, Jamalladeen Tacuma, The O'Jays, and more.

A student of the late Robert “Boysie” Lowery, who taught the late, great Wilmington, Delaware trumpeter Clifford Brown, saxophone great Ernie Watts and others. Chavis is a versatile, ever-expressive trumpeter for the new millennium. He can bop with the best and switch gears to render the smooth, effects-laden blends featured in today's “smooth” jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
