East Bay Soul Sojourns South
Greg Adams and East Bay Soul will light up the stage Saturday, July 30, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Festival of Arts, part of the “Jazz on the Green” series.
With East Bay Soul, Adams, a trumpet player who has worked with such headliners as Annie Lennox, Josh Groban and Celine Dion, creates a distinctive sound that showcases his soulful arrangements. The sound has its roots in San Francisco’s East Bay area.
“Greg Adams and East Bay Soul are going to knock Festival visitors’ socks off!” promised Susan Davis, director of special events. “We are thrilled to welcome them to center stage this season.”
There is no extra cost beyond admission to the Festival of Arts for guests to enjoy the performance.
