Boney James at the Newberry Opera House
Don’t miss Four-time Grammy® nominated saxophonist and composer Boney James is considered one of the best musicians of Contemporary Jazz, at the Newberry Opera House. James’ unique blend of Jazz, Soul, R&B, Funk, and Pop has helped define the sound of 21st century Jazz.
James started playing sax at 10 and turned pro by 19. He cut his teeth as a side man for Morris Day, The Isley Brothers, Teena Marie, and others. James’s debut solo album “Trust” came in 1992 and he has never looked back.
Boney James continues to keep fans and critics coming back for more. His most recent song “Be Here” from the album “Solid” is charting in the top 30 Adult R&B charts. Excited about getting back on the road, James stated, “I love playing live, maybe more than I ever did. A lot of guys get tired of the traveling but it’s still a joy for me every time I go out there and play.”
