When smooth, soulful, & professionally performed Jazz, encompassing a variety of musical genres, perfect for creating just the right ambiance at your reception, party, or event, is your goal, call on Steven Charles. Playing tenor, soprano, & alto saxes, flute, Saxello, wind synth, & vocals, he, along with some of Denver's finest world class musicians, will provide what you need. Specializing in a warm, full-sound, yet with only a duo or trio (even solo), you can pass on a dj, yet not have to deal with the logistics of a larger band. Of course, with our 20+ years of concert & festival experience, a larger ensemble is readily available, as well.
Before relocating to Denver, while in the Atlanta area we performed at numerous events, in all kinds of venues: The 2010 Atlanta Jazz Festival, The SCLC's 50th Anniversary Gala, (featuring Barack Obama), The Charlotte Jazz Festival, Taste of Atlanta, The Trumpet Awards, The PGA National Championship Awards luncheon & ceremony, Centennial Olympic Park, De Kalb County Jazz & Blues Festival, Kingfest at the MLK Center, The Georgia Aquarium, The Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, Hyatt & Hilton Hotels, etc, & countless country clubs, fine dining restaurants, private homes, & night clubs. Our audiences have included world leaders, celebrities of all kinds, & from kids to senior citizens.
We've opened shows for Chicago, Bob James, Bruce Hornsby, Joe Sample, Wayne Shorter, Indigo Girls, Marcus Miller, Jeffery Osborne, The Manhattans, Esperanza Spalding, Oleta Adams, Taj Mahal, Warren Hill, The Pointer Sisters, & many others... Plus, I was privileged to do a solo sax performance of the National Anthem, at a Falcons / 49ers Monday Night Football game, in the Georgia Dome.
We've also performed for countless Fortune 500 corporations, professional sports, government, legal, medical, trade, & non-profit organizations. Microsoft, AT&T, Raytheon, Pfizer, UAL, Phillip Morris, Coca Cola, MetLife, Lucent, the PGA, NBA, NFL, WNBA, Atlanta Food Bank, Save Our Nation, MDA, Morehouse
College, Clark/Atlanta University, U of Ga., & many, many more...
And when a band is too much, and canned music not classy enough, The Steven Charles Jazz Duo (or even solo) is the perfect complement to any business or
social get-together. Incorporating a synergistic blend of "virtual supporting musicians" plus the live energy & sounds of Steven & one of Denver's top guitarists, you are sure to have a professional, high-quality & full-sounding musical presentation, without requiring as much space or cost as a larger combo.
In every configuration, from solo, duo or trio, on up to 6 pieces or more, we come with a broad palette of jazz "colours", always authentic, soulful & professionally presented... Whether it's The Steven Charles Band, Trio, Duo, or even solo, we are on a "mission to please"!
