The Genres of Soul and Jazz Combine During This Prolific Performance with Gregory Porter

For an evening of soulful music, there is simply no better destination than Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre on September 22nd! Acclaimed jazz musician Gregory Porter will perform alongside noted jazz and rhythm and blues musicians for a night of nonstop entertainment.

Gregory Porter is a Grammy-winning jazz/soul vocalist, songwriter, and actor who has released three albums to date. Porter began recording music influenced by his adoration for blues, soul and gospel. His debut album Water was released in 2010 via Motéma Music and gained the singer/songwriter a nomination for Best Jazz Vocal album at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. During this time Porter was performing as part of the original Broadway cast of It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues.

The second album Be Good was released in 2012 and following his notoriety from critics, it achieved moderate chart success across Europe. Once again critics adored Porter's blues/jazz sound and he picked up his second Grammy nomination, this time for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the album's title track.

The third album Liquid Spirit was released in 2013 after he signed a contract with Blue Note Records (Universal Music Group) and was produced by Brian Bacchus. It was a huge success worldwide, charting within the top 20 of the UK album charts, top 10 in Germany and The Netherlands and cracked the top 200 in the US. This album went on to win Gregory his first Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album supporting the theory 'third time lucky'.

Gregory Porter will perform alongside Avery*Sunshine and Anthony David. MC Lightfoot will host and DJ Daddy Dre will provide music. Tickets start at $40 for this event, and VIP tables are available. All attendees are welcome to bring food and drink. Parking is free.
