Jazz at Charlie's in Clearwater - Blake Aaron Returns to Florida for Special One-Night Only Show


International Jazz Touring 
and Recording Artist Series
at
Charlie's Sushi in Clearwater

Wednesday, October 24, 2018
6:30pm Dinner Seating, 8pm Show

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED via
ONLINE TICKETING

Named “a genius on the guitar” by the Los Angeles Times, “a guitar player’s guitarist” by Critical Blast, “…one of the greatest treasures as a guitarist,” by Najee and ..”amazingly talented” by Dave Koz, Blake launched his career as an L.A. studio musician and sideman and has recorded and/ or performed with an incredible array of jazz, pop and R&B artists including Philip Bailey (Earth Wind and Fire), Sheila E., Frank Stallone, Bobby Womack and Carlos Santana (Womack- Save the Children), The Gap Band, David Pack (Ambrosia), Jimmy Pankow (Chicago), and many others.

A first call TV and film guitarist, Aaron has worked for a laundry list of television shows. Some highlighted shows include 15 years with Fox’s “MAD TV,” Steven Seagal’s “Half Past Dead 2,” “Super Dave Osborne”, “The Next Best Thing” (ABC), and “The Ben Stiller Show” (FOX).

Aaron has already scored several Top Five Billboard airplay hits from Soul Stories with his Latin flavored single “Encantadora,” a high energy exotic tune featuring Najee on flute; the soulful jazz tune “You’re The One For Me,” featuring vocalist Spencer Day’s romantic storytelling; and the slamming, brass fired old school jam “Groove-O-Matic.” and “Wes Side Story,” a spirited 60’s soul jazz excursion and a tribute to the great Wes Montgomery. Aaron also released as singles the Latin dance romp “Sol Amor” and the mid-tempo R&B romance “You’re My Miracle.” Soul Stories’ latest single, a tour-de-force version of the classic “Europa,” is re-imagined as an exotic but bluesy cross between the Gato Barbieri and Santana versions and opens with a rich orchestral intro with a beautiful nylon string guitar.

 
With a successful season behind and another
coming up, SPONSORSHIPS are now
available for the 2018-19 season. 
Connect YOUR brand to this exciting
series to reach a sophisticated market
