KCC at the Velvet Note 2-21-14

We will be back at The Velvet Note on February 21st playing some new tunes that we’re in the process of recording (and a few of our old favorites). We love playing this venue and it’s no surprise that it has become one of THE hot spots for music in the south east. The room is intimate, the sound quality is fantastic and the food and drinks are great – it’s no wonder that these shows sell out early! We encourage you to get your tickets early so that you don’t miss this brand new program!
Here’s a short clip from last February’s show at the Velvet Note – we’d be honored if you checked it out and maybe gave us a “like” or nice comment […]

Come celebrate with us this Saturday!

Hi everyone –
I wanted to remind you that the band and I will be back at The Velvet Note this Saturday! We played at the Velvet Note back in October and had an absolute blast playing two sold out shows.
Here’s a quick review from Tamara (the club owner): 
Kenyon Carter was brilliant last night at THE VELVET NOTE! A remarkably generous and versatile bandleader, Carter’s sets spanned both contemporary to straight ahead jazz, and included some beautifully original arrangements of selections from a range of popular genres. Funky, poignant, sensitive and romantic, there was something for everyone in this show. Sidemen Woodson, Aucoin and David were BEASTS on their instruments, and they looked like they had never had so much fun! Oh, and did we […]
