Jesse Snyder & the MUSE Band will star in a special Valentine’s Day concert livestreaming on Kahilu.TV from the Kahilu Theatre stage on Sunday, February 14, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. HST. There will also be a live talk story with Jesse and the band following the performance. Ticket info below.
Jesse Snyder is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger, composer, and vocalist. He plays tenor and baritone saxophones, clarinet, flute, drums, has a smooth baritone singing voice, and is one of the most in-demand musicians in Hawai’i for both live performances and recording sessions. He wrote the horn arrangements and played saxophone, clarinet, traditional Hawaiian nose flute, and ipu (gourd) for the innovative swing jazz band Kahulanui, which received nominations for the Grammy Awards, and were the 2018 recipients of the Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Jazz Album of the Year.
When performing, Jesse’s classic cool style can be light-hearted with whimsical riffs, deep down soulfully funky, or creatively upbeat with hi-hat or his signature high kick. Regardless of the selected style, Jesse is always involved and enthusiastic. Jesse transcends multi-genres including jazz, neo-soul, R&B, reggae, hip hop, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and contemporary jazz, lending fresh energy to every performance. His crooner vocal style has been compared to Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble, and Michael Franks.
The MUSE Band consists of Jesse Snyder (vocals, tenor & baritone saxophones, clarinet, and drums), Noa Eads (drums), Pat Eskildsen (guitar), Brian McCree (acoustic bass), Dwight Tokumoto (steel guitar), and Loren Wilken (piano and keyboards).
