Jesse Smith

TYBEE Post Theater keeps the eclecticism coming! This weekend, catch American guitarist, saxophonist, and producer Jesse Smith bring the funk and dance grooves. A North Florida native, Smith studied jazz saxophone at Florida State School of Music; even more notably, he got schooled at George Clinton’s "School of Funk."

A top-tier session band, the Jesse Smith Project was used for several Motown recording artists, including Clinton and P-Funk. Nowadays, Smith resides in New Orleans, where he’s an in-demand live performer and session musician. Expect a soulful, raw, and definitely funky performance.

Make sure you have your boogie shoes on: as the event notes, dancing is encouraged, and we all know Tybee knows how to get down.

Saturday, April 2, 8 p.m., $25
