Lil’ Maceo (Funk/Jazz/Blues)
Mr. Funky Sax”. This name aptly describes the musical old-school funky, foot-stomping music of Lil’ Maceo. His powerful music has made him one of the most sought-after saxophonists in the industry. This isn’t nickel & dime store this is bona fide unadulterated funk and R&B cleverly crafted by a master musician with hardcore roots in funk, pop, dance, and contemporary jazz. His shows are high energy ultimately compelling audiences to get out of their seats and party. Lil’ Maceo has shared the stage with a host of music giants including Prince, Cyndi Lauper, JT Taylor, Maceo Parker, Nick Colionne, Euge Groove, Marcus Johnson, Cyril Neville, Sinbad, and Gavin DeGraw. He has been mesmerizing audiences nationally since 2001. His music received huge acclaim from critics and audiences alike.
