Smooth Vibrations: A Benefit Concert in Support of Education Featuring Brian Simpson

An evening of jazz in celebration of education will feature a jazz performance by jazz keyboardist and recording artist, Brian Simpson, silent auction, and great food and fellowship! This fundraiser will support the establishment of an endowed scholarship at Calhoun Community College called the “Jack & Annie Anderson 2nd Chance Scholarship” providing support for a student who has overcome adversity in life to pursue his/her academic dreams.

Celebrated keyboardist, composer and studio musician, Brian Simpson has been the ‘go-to’ man for everyone from Janet Jackson and Teena Marie to George Duke, Stanley Clarke and Dave Koz, for whom he has had the distinction of being musical director for the past 15 years. The chart-topping musical chameleon who wrote the #1 R&B hit “The First Time” for Surface in the 1990s confesses, “Ultimately, my listeners inspire me to make my music.”

Known for his ability to sculpt timeless love songs, soulful party anthems and melodies that stay on your mind, Brian Simpson is truly a master at his craft. South Beach, his inaugural album for Shanachie Entertainment, delivers on every front.
