Take 6, a legendary jazz and gospel vocal group, is celebrating 25 years in the music business. Known as the most awarded vocal group in history, they will be headlining Jazzanooga's April 26 show at the Robert Kirk Walker Community Theater.
Also performing that evening are Gretchen Parlato and Alan Hampton. Parlato's Live in NYC project was nominated for a 2015 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance.
Grammy nominated signer, songwriter, Eric Roberson comes to Jazzanooga Festival 2015 in partnership with Jam Session Nights. Roberson's music is influenced by soul, rhythm and blues, house, hip-hop, jazz, rock and more.

Their dynamic, innovative programs have served over 255,000 young people nationwide in partnership with many of America's most prominent performing arts presenters and have received unanimous praise from students, teachers, parents, the media and arts professionals alike.
