The event will take place at Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection – Dubai Marina on April 28.
The European Blues band and leading South African soulful singer “Bonita & The Blues Shacks” featuring the American Honky Tonk Saxophone-ace “Sax Gordon” will headline the 1st edition of the event. “Bonita & The Blues Shacks” is a joint appearance between THE BLUES SHACKS whose original music is based on the legacy of Vintage African-American music from the mid-fifties to the late 1960s and the unique female singer from South Africa BONITA NIESSEN who really stands out by transporting blues and soul music from the past into the present. No other performer on the scene today is capable to add to this show the great tradition of American R&B Sax like SAX GORDON who had performed on the Jazz Garden stage in 2013 and 2014.
On the same night, the award winning and billboard chart toping Soul & Jazz “The JT PROJECT Feat. Todd Scheflin & Jacob Webb” will bring to the stage their unique concept “A new genre in music called JT”. The JT Project is a musical collective, incorporating the most talented jazz and soul musicians in New York City. With five critically acclaimed albums, The JT Project have toured and recorded with major label legends. In a short period of time, They were to take the US Billboard Chart by storm, early in 2016 with their debut single “Jetsetter,” followed by their new single “Overdrive” which hit #1 for three consecutive weeks
The local band “Soul Gorillas & StillRaw” will open the night of this highly anticipated event. Fahed Gabriel aka “StillRaw” who has been on the music scene in Dubai for more than a decade has earned the nickname “The Blues Man of Dubai”. Inspired by Hendrix, SRV, and the Delta Blues, his energy vibrates through the strings of his guitar to shake ‘n’ roll the house. The Soul Gorillas will accompany StillRaw on the stage, a cosmopolitan newly-founded band who’s aim to bring back the 70s and 80s Soul and Funk roots in a modern twist, which engages and entices the audience to hit the dance floor.
According to Anthony Younes, Co-Founder and CEO of Chillout Productions, “After the introduction of Jazz music in the UAE since 2003 with the Dubai Jazz Festival and the launch of the Jazz Garden in 2008, we think that we are able now to establish a strong community for this specific music genre. With the collaboration of Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection, our goal is to continuously support and further the jazz movement that we started, showcasing it through the return of the long awaited event Jazz Garden – The Series. We can only say that this is a start to make the jazz audience grow bigger as much as our line up in the coming editions this year leading to the Jazz Festival in 2018. We invite all to experience a unique and exceptional environment that jazz and blues music aficionados will never want to miss.”
