Since breaking through to contemporary urban jazz stardom in the early 2000s, Nick Colionne has been one of the genre’s most dynamic and tireless live performers, headlining hundreds of shows and energizing fans across the country and Europe with his sizzling blend of jazz, R&B, funk, blues, and soulful, seductive vocals. Over the years, the charismatic, inspirationally fashionable (courtesy of designer Stacy Adams) Chicago-based guitarist’s album titles have kept everyone in the loop as to where his musical heart is. He has mastered the art of Keepin’ It Cool (2006), pushed musical boundaries to a place where there are No Limits (2008), urged us to Feel the Heat (2011), and later explored some of his deepest Influences (2014).
The Journey is the perfect album title for an artist who has become one of the most in-demand headliners on the circuit, playing up to 75 shows a year throughout the country’s top festivals, cruises, and in other top venues.
Colionne will headline the Dauphin County Jazz & Wine Festival on Sat., September 8 at Fort Hunter Park. Tickets for the entire three-day event are just $50 in advance.
