Welcome to Season IV of the Gallery Suite Jazz Series.

Since its inception in 2012, the Gallery Suite Jazz Series has been host to thirty seven consecutive sold out showcases featuring a celebrated list of regional, national and international artists. Now in its forth season, the series continues its tradition of offering some of the best entertainment in downtown Lansing performed by notable artists in various styles of the jazz idiom.

The Gallery Suite Jazz Series is hosted by International recording artist and saxophonist Phil Denny and takes place in downtown Lansing’s most unique and intimate artist-owned studio spaces. This hip, urban, raw venue with open wood ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed brick walls creates the ideal backdrop for you and your guests to experience a night of lively entertainment with an emphasis on diversion though pure musical artistry. With a limited seating capacity, those present will feel as though the music is being performed just for them.

This month’s featured artist is NY based guitarist JJ Sansaverino. JJ is an outstanding performer who has a take no prisoners performance attitude. His musical style is a mix of Smooth Jazz, R&B, World Music, and Fusion, a la Santana meets Benson. He has reached millions with his music, touring the world for the past 25 years and can be seen currently on tour with Maxi Priest. JJ is a Berklee College of Music graduate and even had the prestigious honor of performing at Sir Paul McCartneys wedding to Heather Mills. Yup…JJ is the man!
