Best of Atlanta Concerts is giving away a pair of tickets for Callanwolde Jazz on the Lawn featuring Joey Sommerville, trumpeter – In Concert at Callanwolde Amphitheater – Friday, July 8, 2016 to one lucky Atlanta Natural Hair Care follower.

Trumpeter Joey Sommerville’s musical essence lies in the Baptist church. “When I was a teenager, I would judge the caliber of my playing by the number of people in the congregation who “got happy”. If you aren’t touching the listener’s soul, then you aren’t really playing music. Soul communication is the key.” Fast forward to today where Joey’s unique style of new millennium jazz, with funk, gospel and bop influences, is delivered with infectious pop sensibilities. It’s this, coupled with his humor, warmth and showmanship, that drives the crowd crazy, creating a huge almost “cult-like” following of fans. And rightly so. Joey’s credits include:

  • Performing and recording with mega-rock group Phish • Featured soloist on the Cirque du Soleil’s Grammy nominated and Juno Award winning album, Alegria
  • Featured soloist on Hidden Beach’s Unwrapped Volume 4
  • Produced bassist/vocalist Rhonda Smith’s “RS2” which features Prince, Sheila E. and Gospel great Fred Hammond, voted one of the 10 best albums of the year (Japan)
  • Created the highly successful Sambuca Jazz Series in Atlanta performing with a veritable Who’s Who of contemporary jazz artists including Ronnie Laws, Peabo Bryson, Jeff Golub, Wayman Tisdale, Eric Marienthal, Nelson Rangell, Ronny Jordan, Chuck Loeb, Ann Nesby, and more
  • Performed at major venues and festivals nationally and internationally, including The Capital Jazz Festival, Nashville’s Music City Jazz and Blues Festival, The Seabreeze Jazz Festival, The BB Jazz Fest, Jazz Fest West, Discover Jazz Festival (Burlington Vermont), The Atlanta Jazz Festival, The Preserve Jazz Festival, Jazz Summer Festival (Nassau, Bahamas), The Uptown Market Festival (Bermuda) and The Smooth Jazz Festival Augsburg (Germany)

The winner will be contacted via email Friday July 8, 2016.
