VALENTINE’S DAY CONCERT
Gregory Boyd Quartet vocals (USA)
On February 14, 2022, the Belarusian State Philharmonic Society invites you to spend Valentine's Day to the sounds of real American jazz. This evening, Gregory Boyd, a well-known vocalist and drummer from the United States, who has already fallen in love with the Belarusian public, will appear on the stage of the big hall.
Gregory’s creative coin box contains author's hits written in the best traditions of African-American jazz, funk, blues and soul, “good old” classics of American jazz – famous hits by Louis Armstrong, such as “Hello Dolly”, “Mack The Knife”, “You Don’t know what it means to miss New Orleans”, “I cover the water front, Basin street blues”.
The vocalist is distinguished by a sincere, “spicy” and “stringy” performing manner, virtuoso vocal technique and immense charisma. “Endowed with the abilities and detachment of Monk, combined with the soulfulness of Al Green, with the musicality of Jimi Hendrix, Boyd can play jazz, funk and enter into a state of blues, making you realize that it is impossible to fit him into any framework,” the press says of the jazzman.
Gregory Boyd’s concerts are remembered for a long time and give people a boost of energy for the whole year!
