R&B is most influential to dance music with its relatable lyrical content, moods, self-esteem, and strong sense of rhythm. In that sphere STR8UP Dance Band gets you up out of your seat, and onto your feet, dancing the night away. Smooth jazz is not only polished and gentle, but also a crossover jazz genre incorporating easy-listening pop music and sounds associated with R&B. Marcus Click’s band intertwines those elements into a smooth jazz funky syncopated groove with a classy style. Don’t let the Hammond Organ fool you. Yes, it did establish its reputation as a gospel music instrument, but in jazz it is a powerhouse of forward motion and harmonies. Shawn Pfaffman’s Spot Organ band lays down high energy, rock, jazz, r&b, soul, and spiritual jazz for an uplifting evening of excitement.
