The Frank Hamilton School Concert Series is excited to bring the incomparable Grant Green Jr. to the stage at the Red Light Cafe for another showcase event!  Grant Green Jr is a member of the legendary group Masters of Groove, along with drummer Bernard Purdie and B3 Organ player Reuben Wilson. Son of the great jazz guitarist Grant Green, Green Jr. has continued the family tradition just fine. Growing up in Detroit, his neighbors included Stevie Wonder’s parents, Marvin Gaye lived a few blocks away, and many more Motown artists were in the area. Needless to say, Grant certainly had the influences growing up, most notably his father and Stevie Wonder.

Grant’s performances are extremely soulful and uplifting, his skills on the guitar are second to none. Expect an incredible evening of music by a music gem we are fortunate chose to make Atlanta his home (by way of New York).

Below is a video of Grant performing at the 2nd Annual Holiday Hootenanny at the Variety Playhouse in 2012 with a who’s who lineup surrounding him…Enjoy!
