SunSpots: Jazzin’ at the Shedd

Stephanie's Just Hangin' Around!

 When It’s Hot, Chill at the Shedd!


Until recently, I believe it had been several years since I had ventured out to Jazzin’ at the Shedd and I wondered how it may have changed.  When I heard that Detour JazFunk was opening this year’s season, I knew I had to be there!


Detour JazFunk

Detour was outstanding, as per their usual.  Comprised of Phil Seed (Guitar and Lead Vocals), Kenery Kent Smith (Bass Guitar), Ben “Jammin’” Johnson (Drums & Lead/Background Vocals) and a keyboardist who most often seems to be Tim Gant, Detour is cohesive and smoking’!!!  They performed a perfect mix of jazz, R&B and neo-soul!  Joined by Carla Prather and Elena Love [check], the music was HOT!  A better opening act couldn’t have been chosen.  (See Detour JazFunk again on Wednesday, July 18th and Wednesday, August 29th.)
