Another year is coming to an end. Do you also feel like celebrating the old and the new properly? For our part: We are absolutely in the mood for a big event! That’s the reason why, for the second time, we are presenting our four days Soul-, Funk- and Jazz Party around New Year’s Eve. With the SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL AUGSBURG we bring as usual absolute top names, as well as outstanding young guns of the international Smooth Jazz Scene to Augsburg. Three festival evenings we celebrate in the stunning and evocative atmosphere of the Parktheater at Kurhaus Göggingen. The program includes two live concerts and an after-show party per day – on Thursday Shakatak and Jeannette Harris as well as on Friday Brian Bromberg and Oli Silk & JJ Sansaverino. The fantastic highlight at the Parktheater is the big New Year’s Eve: Euge Groove’s show is followed by a year-end countdown on stage and subsequent Allstar Jam.

Our partner location this year is again the “Dorint Hotel” at Wittelsbacher Park, which provides shuttle busses to the Parktheater on all festival evenings. The hotel itself does not only host the New Year’s Concert feat. singer Lindsey Webster and saxophonist Elan Trotman, which ends the festival smoothly, but also the gala dinner before the New Year’s Eve show. Together with the Dorint Team we have newly conceived the dinner. Be surprised!
The official sale for festival packages starts on September 1, 2016 in our online-shop: www.smoothjazzshop.eu/augsburg

Mixing contemporary jazz with funk, latin and soulful vocals, Oli alongside his 5 piece band are back for one night only.

Welcome to Season III of the Gallery Suite Jazz Series.

Since its inception in 2012, the Gallery Suite Jazz Series has been host to twenty seven consecutive sold out showcases featuring a celebrated list of regional, national and international artists. Now in its third 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 UK keyboardist Oli Silk!

Oli Silk is a keyboardist and producer from the UK. His professional musical journey began in 2000 as one half of jazz funk duo Sugar and Silk and together they released two albums in the UK and Europe. In 2003, he produced and co-wrote an album for saxophonist James Vargas which was released the following year by ‘Trippin’N’Rhythm Records’. Oli’s talent for writing and production caught the attention of the label who signed him, and in 2006 released his debut album ‘So Many Ways’ which received several awards in the industry. Following a top 20 radio single entitled ‘Easy Does It’ and over a dozen successful live performances in the USA, he recorded his 2nd album ‘The Limit’s The Sky’. Released in October 2008, it contained one of the biggest hits of the year ‘Chill Or Be Chilled’ which reached #3 on the Billboard Smooth Jazz chart and stayed on the chart for over a year!
Oli’s 2014 release ‘Razor Sharp Brit’ album went to #1 on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Chart. ‘At Your Service’ is the title of the track, and it features Bassist and labelmate Julian Vaughn.

Oli’s skills as a producer, sound designer and mix engineer have been in demand for many years, he has composed and produced music used on numerous TV shows worldwide such as The Oprah Winfrey Show, MTV, Miami Ink, My Super Sweet 16, Hogan Knows Best and on coverage of Golf’s US Masters.

His abilities as a keyboardist have made him the UK’s ‘go to’ guy, playing for the likes of Boney James, Peter White, Chuck Loeb, Rick Braun, Gerald Albright, Mindi Abair, Dave Koz, Marc Antoine, Paul Brown and many more. He remains one of the most unique and exciting young artists in the genre.
