A true living legend, jazz pianist and three-time Grammy winner Ramsey Lewis' brilliant, far-reaching musicianship and outgoing personality have allowed him to cross over to the pop and R&B charts through the years. Born and raised in Chicago, Lewis first came to fame with the Ramsey Lewis Trio in the late '50s and '60s. With hits like "Hang on Sloopy," "The In Crowd" and "Wade in the Water," the performer-composer and syndicated jazz radio host's performances are a rare treat for jazz aficionados. With his dynamic electric band, Lewis' current tour celebrates the 50th anniversary of his hit albums "Hang on Ramsey!" and "The In Crowd" at Balboa Theatre in San Diego.
