Columbus Jazz Orchestra Live Saturday Night On Classical 101

Former Tonight Show Bandleader Joins CJO at the Southern Theatre

Jazz guitarist and for Tonight Show Bandleader Kevin Eubanks joins Byron Stripling and the Columbus Jazz Orchestra for an evening of music on Classical 101 Saturday night at 8pm.  I'll be your host for an evening billed as Lights! Camera! Action! The CJO gives the best description: The CJO kicks off the season with classic theme songs and music from beloved TV shows including I Love Lucy, M*A*S*H and more. Joining the CJO will be jazz guitarist and longtime Leno sidekick Kevin Eubanks. As bandleader on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for 15 years, Eubanks had one of the highest profile guitar gigs around. Every night, millions of people tuned in to see Eubanks, armed with his arsenal of custom Abe Rivera guitars, direct one of the most revered musical institutions on late-night TV. Now Philadelphia native and PETA’s “World’s Sexiest Vegetarian Manâ€? has begun a new chapter of his career with the release of Zen Food. Kevin Eubanks helps Byron Stripling celebrate his 10th anniversary with the CJO. I hope you'll tune in Saturday night at 8pm.
