VRROOMVIP JazzFEST - ARTIST SPOTLIGHT:

An acclaimed wizard on the soprano sax, national recording artist Dee Lucas has been steadily growing his brand and base beginning with Remembrance in 2004, a tribute to the late legend George Howard.

He released The Smooth Factor in 2014 which was a refreshing interjection into the competitive genre of smooth jazz. Now with his brand new CD Going Deeper, the journey continues.

The record contained the classic hit People Make the World Go Round. ... read more
