  • Bill Dickens

    Bill Dickens

    Dickens has played with a huge range of artists, including Pat Metheny, George Michael, Joe Zawinul, Janet Jackson, Grover Washington, Jr., Chaka Khan, Mary J. Blige, Freddie Hubbard, Al Di Meola, Dennis Chambers, Steve Morse, Randy Newman and The Hooters.[1][2]

    From 1983 to 1999 participated in three recording sessions of Ramsey Lewis: Les Fleurs, A Classic Encounter and Urban Renewal[3]

    He performed together with Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey and Oteil Burbridge on the concert "The Day The Bass Players Took Over The World".[4]

    Dickens usually performs using Extended-range basses, (or "ERBs"), which are electric bass guitars with more range (usually meaning more strings, but sometimes additional frets are added for more range) than the "standard" 4-string bass guitar. Bill Dickens is best known for playing funk (especially speed funk).

  • Booker Long Duo

    Booker Long Duo

    Oakland's up and coming musicians Ryan Scott Long and Michael James Booker have been pursuing their dreams of music since birth. Booker Long Duo's sound captivates their audiences with original compositions along with an eclectic blend of improvised music creating their unique "hyphy jazz" sounds. Their music is highly interactive, explosively intense, experimental, and sometimes very calming with an ambience that will soothe you.
    The duo recently finished a new self titled EP that released on November 3rd, 2015 and is available on all major digital distribution sites. Their new EP also features Grammy Award-Winning drummer Thomas Pridgen & Mike Sopko on guitar. This self tilted EP marks the second release from the band. Together Booker and Long form one of the most exciting duos in music today fusing original compositions and explorative improvisations that keep listeners wanting more. 
    Currently they are working on their third studio release.

  • Jamal Batiste Band

    Jamal Batiste Band

    Jamal Batiste is one of many musical seeds of New Orleans’s own Batiste Family. The son of David Batiste, Sr. and Jackie Shedrick was born on June 18, 1982 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is a producer and an exceptionally talented drummer, who has been playing drums since the age of three. Jamal earned his specialized B.A. degree in Jazz Studies from the University of New Orleans.

    Jamal has performed in the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival since the age of five. He performed with the Batiste Brothers Band and had his own show in the Kid’s tent, Congo Square stage, Fox 8 stage, and the Acura Stage. He’s toured in Africa, Europe, Asia, and USA with international bands such as Los Hombres Calientes, Jon Cleary, The Wild Magnolias, and a host of others.

    Jamal’s rhythmical tone is a Gumbo of Funk, R&B, Latin, Gospel, Second Line, Rock, Hip Hop, Classical, and Jazz that has inspired and mesmerized his fans and supporters of all ages. For his first project, Jamal recorded and executive produced his father’s first rhythm & blues solo album, “New Orleans Is Coming Back” by David Batiste & the Gladiators. For his follow up projects he produced “The Unorthodox Drummer: The First Assemblage” and “T.U.D. Just Jamal” that’s in stores and online (iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, etc.). He has shared the stage with international artists such as DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Doug E. Fresh, Drake, Jill Scott, Lalah Hathaway, Ledisi, Anthony Hamilton, Bonnie Raitt, Musiq Soulchild, Yolanda Adams, and many more. He recently made his debut appearance in the James Brown movie Get On Up, playing as James Brown’s long-time drummer John “Jabo” Starks. He’s currently performing and recording with rapper Dee-1, Bill Summers, Topsy Chapman & Solid Harmony, and his fire, explosive band, Jamal Batiste Band.
