Wichita Jazz Festival - Christian McBride
7:30-10:30p , April 18, 2020 | Crown Uptown Theatre
You won’t want to miss six-time GRAMMY®-winning jazz bassist Christian McBride as he headlines the 2020 Wichita Jazz Festival. After touring with saxophonist Bobby Watson for several years, McBride formed the Christian McBride Band. Noted as “one of the most intoxicating, least predictable bands on the scene today,” McBride and his band have been performing for nearly 20 years. He also performs with a trio, Inside Straight quintet, and with the Christian McBride Big Band.
Alongside his notable ensembles, McBride is heavily involved in the community as an educator and talk show host. Christian McBride works with the nationally recognized community arts organization Jazz House Kids. Additionally, he hosts and produces “The Lowdown: Conversations With Christian” on SiriusXM satellite radio and National Public Radio’s “Jazz Night in America,” a weekly radio show and multimedia collaboration.
