Acclaimed trumpet player Rick Braun returns to the Coachella Valley with his dynamic horn. Arguably one of the most versatile and entertaining instrumentalists of our generation, Braun has the ability to shift gears from smooth jazz, to funk, pop, R&B and straight ahead jazz. His talent has shared the stage with music legends such as Rod Stewart and Sade.
And if that's not enough, joining Braun will be the incredible pianist/composer Greg Karukas. Currently the music director for the world-famous Dave Koz Cruise, Karukas has led and performed with the top names in smooth jazz. Last but not least, Michael Paulo, one of the most versatile saxophonists of our generation, rounds out this spectacular line-up. The Hawaiian-born sax man cut his teethnbsp;with the likes of legendary vocalist Al Jarreau, James Ingram, Kenny Loggins, and more.
