GREGORY PORTER IN LAS VEGAS
WITH ALONZO BODDEN
AUGUST 25, 2023
Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center
Las, Vegas, NV
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Gregory Porter has performed on several Jazz Cruises’ programs, each time mesmerizing guests and fellow entertainers alike. Jazz Cruises consider Gregory to be one of the singular voices in the jazz world and in music altogether. As a tribute to his talent and importance, Jazz Cruises, together with The Smith Center, are presenting his first Las Vegas concert, August 25, 2023 at 7:30 pm, at Reynolds Hall, the magnificent auditorium located at The Smith Center.
Gregory Porter is a multi-Grammy® Award winner and has been dubbed “America’s Next Great Jazz Singer” by NPR. Gregory’s Liquid Spirit and Take Me to the Alley albums were runaway hits and firmly established him as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter.
Joining Gregory for the evening is comic Alonzo Bodden, the comic-in-residence for Jazz Cruises having performed on more than 25 Jazz Cruises’ programs. Alonzo is smart as a whip, unafraid to delve into today’s hot topics and, relishes pointing out the silliness, inconsistencies, and hypocrisies in society. A thinking man’s comic who takes no short cuts and uses no gimmicks.
Gregory Porter has a special message and invitation just for you!
