THIS MONTH'S INFO
Thursday - July 20th - 7:00 pm
Singer- songwriter and trombonist Chadwick Bishop has been a staple on the Long Beach music scene since the release of his 2006 debut, Mr. Chadwick-FREE! Some say his vocal stylings are a throwback to the days of Al Green and Marvin Gaye mixed with the 90’s New Jack Swing influences of groups like Guy, Levert, and New Edition. Chadwick draws inspiration for his songs through real life experiences whether they are happening to himself or others. He also tends to add a touch of humor that invites active crowd participation in his live shows. Previous engagements include venues throughout Colorado, Hawaii, and California. His most recent debut, along with DJ S.O.U.L-O, at the House of Blues in San Diego was a stunning success. Hanging with Grandma around the old record player in his Alabama hometown is where Chadwick spent many of his days as a child. These days whether he’s crooning a soulful ballad, leading the crowd in an upbeat chant, or blowing heartfelt trombone solo, the message is all the same….Love and togetherness through truthful expression
