DC Jazz Fest Jazz in the Hoods presents Samuel Prather

6/10/2019 | 6pm to 9pm

A multi-instumentalist (keys, drums, guitar, bass, percussion, and vocals) born and raised in Washington DC. He developed a reputation for performing with and producing all types of acts. I’m equally comfortable in Jazz, Funk, Gospel, Brazilian, Latin, Soul, and R&B.

He has been lucky enough to work with Raul Midon, Fred Yonnet, Hugh Masekela, Cyrus Chestnut, Pharoh Saunders, and Bennie Maupin to name a few. I was honored to win a student downbeat award in 2012 for my work with the Howard University Jazz Ensemble and currently lead my own critically acclaimed ensemble “Groove Orchestra”. He also recently started performing with a stripped down version of Groove Orchestra I call the G.O! 4tet, which is great for fans who love Groove orchestra but can’t wait for a big event with the larger group.
