具有超凡魅力和动感的萨克斯风演奏家、乐队领队——Lakecia Benjamin,已经与Stevie Wonder、Alicia Keys、The Roots、Macy Gray和其他许多人合作,在演出中将灵魂音乐和放克音乐带到一个高度狂热的点,使观众随之舞动。

她的音乐和她的乐队Lakecia Benjamin and Soul Squad的音乐都沉浸在James Brown、Maceo Parker、Sly and the Family Stone和The Meters以及经典爵士乐的复古之声中,但Benjamin使用的飞舞的、适合舞池的节奏令经典氛围达到一个全新的水平。其中始终不变的是Benjamin的夏日风格的、性感的中音萨克斯风,为每一次演奏都增加了一些特殊之处——不管是深夜氛围,还是广泛、有力的爵士乐紧张度,或是紧凑的放克风格的多铜管和声部分,都调剂了整个演奏过程。

Charismatic and dynamic saxophonist/bandleader Lakecia Benjamin's electric stage presence and fiery sax work, has shared stages with Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, The Roots, Macy Gray and many others, brings the soul and funk up to a fever pitch in a show that's guaranteed to keep crowds dancing day or night. Though her own music with her band Lakecia Benjamin and Soul Squad is immersed in the vintage sounds of James Brown, Maceo Parker, Sly and the Family Stone and the Meters as well as classic jazz, Benjamin's soaring, dance floor-friendly grooves take the classic vibe to a whole new level. The constant throughout it all is Benjamin's summery, sultry alto saxophone, adding something special on every cut - be it a smoldering late-night ambience, an erudite, forceful jazz intensity or the tight funk multi-horn harmony sections that pepper the proceedings throughout.
