Following sold-out appearances at BLU Jazz+ in 2016 & 2017, sensational pop/R&B/jazz saxophonist & member of New Power Generation (the backing band of music icon, Prince) returns to the Rubber City with his high-energy band for a 2nd annual Valentine's Day party not to be missed!
Pop/R&B and jazz sensation, Marcus Anderson, is fast becoming one to watch. Hailing from South Carolina, Marcus Anderson has performed for audiences all over the world as one of Prince’s saxophonists in New Power Generation. As part of New Power Generation, Anderson has played and been showcased in such iconic festivals such as the Essence Music Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival and the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival.
Watching Marcus Anderson perform is akin to no other live experience. The tremendous musicianship Anderson displays in-person is matched only by his energetic, charismatic and passionate showmanship. Heavily influenced by artists such as Michael Jackson, James Brown and Prince, Anderson’s magnetic stage persona and tremendous enjoyment of performing is undeniable. Anderson makes the stage his musical playground and the stage becomes the setting for where “style meets substance.”
“Touring with Prince has been rewarding in so many different ways; I feel as if I’m in grad school, business classes, and etiquette school all wrapped into one. Thank you Paisley University!”
— Marcus Anderson
