About The Artists

Current CD: “The Three Kings”
Jeff Golub is a contemporary jazz & blues guitarist with 6 solo albums and 3 CD’s as the leader of “Avenue Blue”. Well known for his work with Rod Stewart, performing on 4 albums and 5 world tours. Born in Copley Ohio, Jeff started playing by emulating Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, & Jimi Hendrix. Then, following up on the artists that these musicians sighted as their inspiration, he delved deeper into the blues listening to Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy and anyone named King (B.B.,Albert & Freddie). His solo records have been staples at radio and he has toured the world annually with “Guitars and Saxes”

Widely hailed as a pianist and vocalist both as a solo artist and with a variety of groups – considered by many to be the premier exponent of the great New Orleans jazz and blues piano tradition – Henry Butler is equally respected for his versatile work as a composer and arranger in a broad range of genres, and as a speaker and educator in high demand on conference programs and college campuses around the country.


The Michael Jazz Trio hails from Central Islip. If you become introduced to The Michael Jazz Trio through their music, you could be stunned when checking out their bios. Oldest brother Matthew, and keyboardist, is 17 years old. Sax player, David, is 15 years old and Jordan, 11 years old, is keeping the beat on the drums.
