At 8:00 PM and 10:30 PM on two consecutive evenings, the renowned icon will appear on stage performing a plethora of his chart topping hits and eternally revived tunes.

As one of the greatest living vibraphonists and vocalists, Roy Ayers is among the best-known, most-loved and respected Jazz and R&B artists on the music-scene to date. Now in his fourth decade in the music business, Ayers- known as the Godfather of Neo-soul- continues to bridge the gap between generations of music lovers. In the ’60s he was an award-winning jazz vibraphonist, and transformed into a popular R&B bandleader in the ’70s/’80s.

Ayers recently recorded with hip-hop artist Talib Kweli (produced by Kanye West) and jazz/R&B singer Will Downing. Many of Ayers’ songs including “Everybody Loves the Sunshine,” “Searchin’” and “Running Away” have been frequently utilized and remixed by DJ’s worldwide.

“I think music all the time.” Ayers boldly stated in a recent interview. And with this mindset, he is prepared to unveil the captivating sounds of his music at New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club which have made him an emblematic idol throughout the world.
