SOLD OUT Monthly Music Series: Soul of Christmas with Brian Owens and the Adam Maness Trio

The World Chess Hall of Fame is thrilled to present singer Brian Owens in concert with the Adam Maness Trio in a program of soulful holiday classics sure to get you in the spirit of the season. Owens, a vibrantly vintage artist who follows the groove gospel of classic 1960s and 1970s soul with a heavy dose of traditional quartet stylings, will take the listener on a journey through sacred and secular favorites alongside frequent collaborators Adam Maness, Bob DeBoo, Montez Coleman and student performers from the LIFE Arts Flow Artist Collective.

Brian Owensvocals are a revelation—purposeful and passionate—recalling the sensual urgency of Marvin Gaye, the comforting falsetto of Curtis Mayfield, and tender grit of Sam Cooke. He has performed at the White House and the World Series, Powell Hall and the Apollo Theater. Owens is the Founder, CEO and Executive Director of LIFE Arts Inc. in Ferguson, MO. 

The Adam Maness Trio formed in early 2017 around a mutual love of melody, and joyful improvisation. Featuring Adam Maness on piano, Bob DeBoo on bass, and Montez Coleman on drums, the trio is continually adding new compositions and arranging popular songs in the tradition of the modern piano trio.

This event is SOL OUT.
