Since its inception in 2012, the Gallery Suite Jazz Series has been host to fifty two sold out artist showcases of fifty one that we have produced featuring a celebrated list of regional, national and international artists. Now in its sixth season, the series continues its tradition of offering the best venue entertainment in downtown Lansing performed by notable artists in various styles of the jazz idiom.
The Gallery Suite Jazz Series is hosted by International recording artist and saxophonist Phil Denny and takes place inside La Fille Gallery; downtown Lansing’s most unique and intimate artist-owned studio space. The hip, urban, raw venue artistically designed and decorated by Internationally celebrated and multi-discipline artist Tiffany Marie posesess wood ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed brick walls which creates the ideal backdrop for you and your guests to experience a night of lively entertainment with an emphasis on diversion though pure musical artistry. With a limited seating capacity, those present will feel as though the music is being performed just for them.
This month we welcome Elan Trotman. Saxophonist Elan Trotman, has quickly become one of jazzs most thrilling and emotive performers as he continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, teacher and recording artist. Born and raised in Barbados and educated at the world-renowned Berklee College Of Music in Boston, Trotman approaches jazz in his own way. Blending Caribbean rhythms from his roots with skillful horn textures, his playing is full of surprises. Trotman has recorded and performed with a number of world-class musicians, including Michael McDonald, Roberta Flack, Jonathan Butler, Keiko Matsui, Johnny Gill, Jeffrey Osborne, Sheila E, Marcus Miller, Will Downing, Earl Klugh, Jeff Lorber, Peter White, Peabo Bryson, Brian Simpson and many others. A huge sports fan, Trotman has performed the National Anthem on numerous occasions for such teams as the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers.
