ACTJams Productions presents an up close and intimate Pre-Grammy Red Carpet Affair in the orchestra lobby starring jazz producer and two-time Grammy nominee Chris “Big Dog” Davis featuring two-time Grammy nominated and award-wining jazz saxophonist and flutist Najee. Davis and Najee will be joined by more musical guests to be announced.
Following the concert, patrons will be invited to take to the dance floor for an Old School Dance Party featuring everyone’s favorite R&B, funk, house and club classics spun by the evening’s host, Al “DJ ACT” Taylor from 94.3FM WYBC.

Christopher J. Davis, known as “Big Dog,” is a Waterbury native and two-time Grammy nominated writer and producer, who has earned ten Billboard top #1 smooth jazz records since 2008. Chris received a Grammy nomination in 2014 for his work with singer/songwriter “Maysa” on her “Blue Velvet Soul” CD. Chris and co-producer Gerald Albright received a Grammy nomination in 2015 for their CD “Slam Dunk” in the category of “Best Contemporary Instrumental Album.”

Najee is one of the top-selling jazz saxophonist of our generation and continues to demonstrate his consistency by connecting with various audiences throughout the world. Creating music at this level in his career is still exhilarating, as he states, “I am always evolving. As a musician the love of performing for people whether in-studio or live, is still a gratifying experience.”
