The region’s most in-demand tenor saxophonist, Ron Holloway, is bringing his band to Leesburg on Saturday night.
A Washington, DC, native, Holloway built his reputation as a jazz and blues performer in the late 1970s and 1980s while sharing the stage with legendary Dizzy Gillespie on some nights and the innovative Root Boy Slim and The Sex Change Band on others.
More recently, Holloway has been a fixture on the jam band circuit, regularly performing with The Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat, the Derek Trucks Band and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. He’s just returned from Jamaica where he joined Government Mule last week for a series of beachfront shows. Today, it was announced that the band will play at New Orleans’ JazzFest in May.
Tickets for Saturday’s concert at Smokehouse Live are $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the 9 p.m. show.
Smokehouse Live is located at 1602 Village Market Blvd SE.
