Guitarist Blake Aaron has taken the Contemporary Jazz world by storm recently with a total of FIVE #1 Billboard Singles!

Named “a genius on the guitar” by the Los Angeles Times, “Aaron’s guitar playing is stellar” by The Jazz World, ”Take your pick-he’s a good picker!” by Jazz Weekly, “…one of the greatest treasures as a guitarist,” by Najee, and “a guitar player’s guitarist” by Critical Blast, Blake Aaron launched his career as an L.A. studio musician/sideman and has recorded and/ or performed with artists such as Philip Bailey (Earth Wind and Fire), Sheila E., Frank Stallone, The Alan Parsons Project, Bobby Womack and Carlos Santana (Womack-Save the Children), The Gap Band, Lakeside, Dynasty, Little Anthony, Ronnie Laws, Keiko Matsui, Najee, Warren Hill, Bill Champlin (Chicago), Ellis Hall (Tower of Power) and many others.


National recording artist and saxophonist Dee Lucas has been noted as the most consistent and hardest working indie artist in the entire music industry while steadily growing his brand and fan base beginning with Remembrance in 2004.  Thereafter, it has been a steady showcase of unique stylings with Something to Ride 2 (2007), Standing Room Only (2010), Rebirth of the Smooth (2012), The Smooth Factor (2014), Going Deeper (2016), The Sweet Spot (2017), Going Left (2018), the critically-acclaimed The Time Is Now (2020), and his outstanding offering in No Boundaries (2023).  He is a 3-time Billboard smooth jazz artist with four #1 hits across various smooth jazz charts.

Over the years, Dee Lucas has co-billed or headlined on an extensive number of concerts and festivals across the U.S.  He will make his international debut in London as part of ‘The Twenty Tour’ celebrating 20 years as a recording artist.
