Loston Harris' piano playing has been described as "percussive" and "incredibly fluid." His vocals noted as "suave." For almost two decades, Loston has headlined at a "home" that shares his passion for timeless music. The legendary Bemelmans Bar. After meeting at the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition, Harry Connick Jr. led Loston to study with his mentor, Ellis Marsalis, who encouraged him to switch instruments from drums to piano. Loston blends traditional jazz, gospel and blues with his own unique stylings. With early musical inspirations ranging from artists such as Stevie Wonder, Carole King and other notable pop and R&B bands, it was jazz that ultimately chose Loston, jazz is "hip, serious, complex, improvisational and limitless." Loston has performed with multiple Grammy Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Wynton Marsalis; appeared on "Portraits in Blue" with Grammy Nominee, Marcus Roberts. Loston is in-demand at celebrity and charity events having performed at George Clooney's Birthday with John Mayer; playing for Sarah Jessica Parker at her private VIP after-party for the "Sex in the City Movie"; was selected by Tom Cruise to sing and play at his ICON Award Ceremony and a personal highlight occurred when Sir Paul McCartney sat in and sang "The Very Thought of You"! Frank Sinatra, Bobby Short and Nat King Cole can rest comfortably knowing that Loston Harris is keeping the flame alive. Lineup: Loston Harris - Piano/Vocal Gianluca Renzi - Bass Mike Lee - Tenor Sax
