Description

Band on the Wall presents the first of two concerts by the internationally-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated jazz and soul singer.

"Gregory is the real deal and a revelation in terms of new male jazz singers, but I think that his voice coupled with his songwriting may be the thing that leaves most listeners with their mouths open....Gregory is the first that I’m hearing that is squarely coming out of a real classic soul bag (i.e. Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway) as a songwriter, but with both feet firmly planted in jazz’s soil." Brian Bacchus

Support tonight comes from the precocious Manchester-based singer songwriter Ruby Ann Patterson.
