Meet an Acclaimed Jazz Musician Who Is Up There with Kenny G

It has been a full quarter-century since a young Boney James released his debut recording. Since then, James has released 15 albums, his 16th titled Honestly. Now, watch as Boney James performs live at Charleston Music Hall in support of Honestly on Saturday, April 6th.

Over the years, James has racked up sales of more than three million records, four RIAA gold albums, four GRAMMY nominations, a Soul Train Award, nominations for two NAACP Image Awards and 10 CDs atop Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. In 2009, Billboard named him one of the Top 3 Contemporary Jazz Artists Of The Decade along with Kenny G and Norah Jones. With Honestly, as with futuresoul and the Grammy-nominated The Beat before it, Boney James is making some of the most stellar, wholly realized music of his career.

James always had a natural affinity for music, and by the time he entered his teens, he was gigging with bands. He turned pro at 19, first as a sideman for artists like Morris Day and the Isley Brothers, picking up pointers on how to present himself onstage and off. He didn't cut his first album under his own name until he was 30. The independently released Trust led immediately to a major label deal and a string of increasingly successful recordings and live dates.

Now, Boney James celebrates his successes with a show at Charleston Music Hall on Saturday, April 6th. Don’t miss it! Admission ranges from $49 to $59. A dinner add-on option is also available for an additional $32. Tickets may be purchased online at
