Adrian Crutchfield

Adrian Crutchfield is known around the world for his neo-soul sound – creating music in a variety of genres such as jazz, R&B, pop, funk, soul, hip hop, and fusion. His high energy show brings a diversity to jazz never seen before with music for every generation! Adrian takes pride in bringing a new and powerful sound, merging jazz with today’s pop and hip hop.

Adrian Crutchfield has taken the world by storm in recent years, not only as the last sax player to perform and record with Prince, touring the world and being featured on Prince’s last three albums, but also touring domestically and internationally with acts such as Lionel Ritchie, Bette Midler, and Cee Lo Green.

THE NPG Hornz: Marcus Anderson, BK Jackson, Lynn Grissett, Joey Rayfield and Adrian Crutchfield

Shelby J

Shelby Johnson — or Shelby J, as she’s more popularly known — has resided in New York, Las Vegas and Indianapolis. But North Carolina is home. Shelby J cut her teeth doing background vocals for acts like Mary J. Blige and Groove Theory. She started to capture more exposure when she went on D’Angelo’s Voodoo tour. At the time, Johnson was doing background vocals along with Charlotte native Anthony Hamilton. 

Johnson performed worldwide with Prince’s band, the New Power Generation. Their performances have included the 2007 Super Bowl and a sold-out concert at the Greensboro Coliseum, where she first saw Prince perform when she was 12.

Doors open approximately 45 minutes before showtime – Tickets are $50 at the Door.
