The Buffalo State Performing Arts Center presents R n R featuring jazz superstars Rick Braun and Richard Elliot. It was only a matter of time before these two award winning heavyweights of contemporary jazz teamed up to forge one of the most anticipated tours of the year. Scotland-born, Los Angeles-raised and Grammy nominated saxophonist Richard Elliot began his recording career playing on songs by Motown legends Smokey Robinson and The Temptations. He’s toured with Melissa Manchester and Tower of Power and is an icon of the contemporary Jazz scene. Elliot continues to stop the show each time he plays his classic signature version of When A Man Loves A Woman. Smooth jazz trumpeter and Allentown, Pennsylvania native Rick Braun started his professional career by writing the top 20 pop hit Here With Me for REO Speedwagon. He has played in bands backing Rod Stewart, Tom Petty and Crowded House as well as successfully fronting his own solo tours and has amassed over 20 #1 smooth jazz hits. Don’t miss the chance to see two powerhouses of jazz together on stage.
