Jazz 88.3 is proud to support San Diego Theatres as they present multi-Grammy award winning jazz vocalist, Gregory Porter, THIS Sunday, (7PM) at Balboa Theatre. He will perform songs with his outstanding band, from his highly acclaimed five albums. Raised in California, Porter’s mother was a minister, and he cites the Bakersfield Southern Gospel sound, as well as his mother’s Nat King Cole record collection, as fundamental influences on his own sound. Porter began singing in small jazz clubs in San Diego while attending San Diego State University on a football scholarship, where he played outside linebacker. Eventually it was music that Porter chose to pursue full-time at the encouragement of local musicians including his mentor Kamau Kenyatta. For more information, or to purchase tickets, click here
