Reginald Lewis & Friends is a dynamic jazz ensemble led by saxophonist Reginald Lewis. Inspired by Philadelphia’s vibrant jazz scene, the group pays homage to the city's rich musical heritage while infusing their performances with a fresh and contemporary approach.
Reginald Lewis is a composer, educator, and musician, and he is the grandson of the legendary Philadelphia jazz musician Bootsie Barnes. Inspired by his grandfather's virtuosity and contributions to the genre, he embarked on a musical journey to honor and preserve that heritage. In the spirit of his grandfather, Reginald Lewis and Friends represent a new generation of jazz musicians who are carrying the torch of this cherished art form, delighting audiences, and preserving the essence of jazz for generations to come. Come celebrate Black History Month at this special performance.
