Experience the magic of the original music of Raz Kennedy. Join us on Saturday, February 2nd at The Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley for the first ever Raz Kennedy show of original songs written by the singer.

The Raz Kennedy Show III: Some Diff'rent Kinda Shit! is an evocative artistic exploration of the many expressions stockpiled in Raz’ musical background. This exclusive performance will serve as an insightful celebration of Raz Kennedy’s musical journey as a songwriter and provides a window into his perspective on the need for community, self inquiry, spiritual life, self love, romantic love and self determination. Conjuring a mosaic of musical styles, Raz Kennedy's repertoire draws from Rock, R&B, Jazz and Theater which exemplifies Raz' varied music influences.

In honor of this debut event, Raz will be joined by an all star musical ensemble featuring Matthew Charles Heulitt on guitar (Sting, Narada Michael Walden, Sammy Hagar), Kai Eckhardt on bass (John McLaughlin, George Brooks, Billy Cobham), Colin Hogan on piano/keyboards (The Hogan Brothers), Hassan Hurd on drums (The Coup) with Sandy Griffith (Celine Dion, Diana Ross, Huey Lewis and The News) and Leah Tysse (Michael Franti, Pete Escovedo, Ashford & Simpson) as background vocalists.

His eclectic performance credits include serving as a founding member of the internationally acclaimed Bobby McFerrin’s Voicestra and performing as a background vocalist on recordings for many legendary artists, including Whitney Houston and Al Jarreau, as well as on stage for Sting, Rebeca Mauleon, Santana and Mickey Hart.
