Andre Delano to Perform with Good 4 the Soul on Sunday, March 3 at BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups

SOURCE: Published:
Saxophonist Andre Delano, the East St. Louis native who's had significant success as a touring musician and recording artist, is returning home to perform at 6:00 p.m. Sunday, March 3 at BB's Jazz Blues and Soups.

He'll be backed for the gig by Good 4 The Soul, which includes fellow East St. Louisans Adaron “Pops" Jackson (keyboards), John King (bass), James Jackson (drums), and Shaun Robinson (guitar).

Delano (pictured), who now lives in California, grew up in East St. Louis and went to Lincoln High there during the tenure of the school's famed band director Ronald Carter.

After attending Jackson State University in Jackson, MS, he turned professional and subsequently has performed and/or recorded with Maxwell, Jeff Lorber, Bobby Womack, Stevie Wonder, Chieli Minucci, Doc Powell, Bobby Lyle, and Lionel Richie, for whom he was a featured sideman for three years. For some samples of Delano's playing, check out this StLJN Saturday video feature, which ran in 2010 before Delano appeared at The Pageant on a double bill with Euge Groove.

Tickets for Andre Delano and Good 4 The Soul at BB's will be $10 at the door.
