Bryan Lubeck Rides the Billboard Wave

Bryan Lubeck's "Tuscan Sky" has spent more than 15 weeks in the Top 40 of the Smooth Jazz charts of Billboard Magazine, "the bible of the music industry," and local fans will get the chance to revisit his outstanding talents very soon when he returns to The Box Factory for the Arts in St. Joseph on Saturday, November 23, 2013.

In many regards it will be a "homecoming" of sorts for Bryan.  While he grew up in Goshen, Indiana...it was in the music studio of Grammy Award winner Dave Carlock of St. Joseph that he recorded his first song.  He also attributes his sound and brand inspiration to Tabor Hill Winery, inasmuch as he played weekends there early on in his career, and Tabor Hill's Paul & Kim Landeck are likely his most ardent supporters.  In fact, he just recorded his latest music video at Tabor Hill last month.  You can watch it by clicking the link at the end of this story.

Lubeck brings his 5-piece band of top Chicago touring musicians to The Box for a 7:30pm show on Saturday the 23rd, in an intimate setting that he loves because of the ability to have a conversation with the audience.  

Tuscan Sky has garnered great critical acclaim and rave reviews.  The title song from the album was just released last week and immediately shot to the 5th most-added-to-radio slot on the Billboard charts and maintained that ranking this week as well.  

Bryan moved to Michigan's Great Southwest in his late 20's and earned a big break in the Smooth Jazz genre by opening to a standing ovation for Tower of Power sax player Richard Elliott at St. Joseph's popular Smooth Jazz at Sunset.  Bryan's holiday CD "We Three Strings" is still ranked by top radio programmers as one of the best holiday CD's in any genre of all time and is still promoted by distributors side-by-side with the likes of Manheim Steamroller.  

If you'd like to go to The Box for Bryan's show, tickets are $18/$12 and can be purchased online at www.BoxFactorForTheArts.org in the "event" section or by calling for reservations at 269-983-3688.  Bryan's own website is www.BryanLubeck.com.
