Groove With You! Join bassist Jon Roberts for a musical tribute to the Isley Brothers and his 2017 birthday celebration at City Winery Atlanta. Jon Roberts is one of Atlanta's best-known music director playing and recording for the likes of the Akon, Jagged Edge, India Arie, Norman Brown, Ken Ford, Lyfe Jennings, Anthony David and so many others. Originally from Gary, Indiana, Jon has been playing the bass since the age of three. He moved to Atlanta to attend the Music Business Program at The Art Institute of Atlanta where he learned audio engineering. His work drew the attention of La Face executives Zetra & Merle Smith which eventually led to recording and touring for the artists above plus major franchise properties like on BET, UniverSoul Circus, R&B Divas and Tyler Perry's Have & Have Nots Tour.
John will be joined by some of the best musicians in Atlanta including vocalists Kipper Jones (Vanessa Williams/Brand/Kipper Jones RnB Circus) and Tony Tatum (Keith Sweat/New Edition); guitarists Sheldon Ferguson (Ledisi/Aloe Blacc) and Sterling Holloman (Preacher's Wife/Georgia Mass Choir); and drummer Terrell Sass (Jennifer Holliday/Tamar Davis).
Come on out for some serious Isley Grooves and a celebration of life for one of Atlanta's most beloved musicians.
