Guitarist George Simon will join the big band for the Cowboy Bebop jazz tribute concert from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 29 at Withrow High School!
George’s stylistic versatility keeps him in demand. He is a former adjunct professor of jazz guitar studies at the University of Dayton, and a finalist for the Jazziz Magazine‘s “Guitars on Fire” contest. George has shared the stage with saxophonist Javon Jackson, trumpeter Philip Harper, trombonist Robin Eubanks, and has opened for vocalist Joe Cocker, saxophonist Kirk Whalum, guitarist Norm Brown and trumpeter Rick Braun.
He has played multiple venues throughout the region, including Riverbend Music Center, Fraze Pavilion, Columbus Jazz and Ribs Festival, Taste of Cincinnati, Dayton Jazz Festival, Charleston Wine and Jazz Festival, Blues Alley (DC), Bakers Keyboard Lounge (Detroit), Jazz Kitchen (Indianapolis), Gilly’s (Dayton), The Greenwich (Cincinnati), and The Blue Wisp (Cincinnati).
Can’t wait to hear George swing!
