LeNard Rutledge
, born and raised in Miami, where there is only a handful of truly great male jazz vocalists, is usually compared, aptly, to the legendary Lou Rawls. Like Rawls, Rutledge's classy elegance is often permeated by the raw passion of his church choir work. He began his vocal career in 1997, when he was asked to join the famed Melton Mustafa Orchestra.

Three exciting new female vocalists, Kristine Bover, Alex Brandenburg, and Meghan Fitton will join LeNard

The singers will be accompanied by a world-class rhythm section led by the renowned Mike Levine.
