JC Hopkins

Grammy-nominated JC Hopkins has become a staple in the jazz music scene in New York City with his influence extending throughout the world. Featuring the top talent in today’s new movement in jazz, he and his “JC Hopkins Biggish Band” have performed with and accompanied a wide range of innovative vocalists including Norah Jones, Tony Bennett, Jon Hendricks, Andy Bey, Johnny O’Neal, Elvis Costello, Mose Allison, Madeleine Peyroux, Jazzmeia Horn and Martha Wainwright.

His exuberant music is directed by many genres including jazz, swing, bebop, and the Great American Songbook.
