Eric has been a respected pianist in this region - and beyond - for three decades! He has been an in-demand leader AND sideman (over 15 musical projects as a guest star) - and has served as State Department Ambassador for multiple countries. The depth of his work can be heard in the aforementioned 2009 release - and also in "21st Century Swing: Live" that was recorded at a popular Jazz Festival last year. A foot firmly in the past with an eye on the future of Jazz - this is why so many appreciate him!

While she was a key member of the band, Cowboy Jazz :-D At six, Deanna was kicked out of music school because she chose to play piano by ear as opposed to chart. She has been rebelling ever since!

Taya Envy - R&B Artist - 3:15pm
Born in Springfield, Illinois; raised in Aurora, Colorado. Taya Envy; why I gave myself this stage name is, the person I felt and began to see myself grow into had potential of no other. Taya is half of my name; Envy is what I see beyond my eyes. My craft comes from within a place I couldn't lead you to, though I can take you to that place within my music.
Being raised by my "Maw maw" I grew an "Old Soul", around the house all I heard was music. My Maw maw gets all the credit. She'd always told me I'd be a star all I have to do is believe in myself. I was inspired by Marvin Gaye he was a man of many words. When I'd listen to him speak I heard a story, I heard the world through his song. Still to this day I'm always wondering "What's Going On". My motto is ""Keep It Real". That's the only way to be, being who you are is what makes you the person you want to evolve to be.

Tyrone Benjamin, (born 26th May 1987 in Brooklyn, NY) is a Gospel Jazz artist. He began playing the soprano and alto saxophone, at the age of 14. He was introduced to the saxophone during his high school years. Although Tyrone didn’t like playing at first, it was mandatory that he learned to play it. Tyrone was saved at the age of 18, and upon his high school graduation, he began opening up to God and dedicating his life to worshiping God through his instrument. He’s been inspired by the works of Kirk Whalum and John Coltrane.
Tyrone gained a passion to play music, through taking his relationship with God, seriously. In playing the saxophone, he enters into another dimension of worship, one in which his pure sounds and prophetic flow, are truly a blessing to the people of God. Out of the love that he has for God, and his passion for music, Tyrone hopes that through his playing, there will be an exchange that will impact someone’s life, giving them peace of mind, hope, and freedom, from the strongholds that are weighing them down.
The Lord has graciously allowed his music ministry to grow. Tyrone has played for various artists throughout the U.S. and abroad, particularly in Antigua. He has become a sought after musician in the tri-state area. He aims one day to become a recording artist; showing his ministry to people worldwide.
Tyrone is truly a man after God’s own heart. His humble, kind, caring and personable spirit, are surely a display of the love and grace of God has given him. In the words of Tyrone, “Words alone can’t express the love I have for God, the way I can express it through the saxophone!” For booking and more information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or visit Sax Impact Music at: https://www.facebook.com/saximpact.
