Bob DeVos

Guitarist, composer, and arranger Bob DeVos is hailed as "a brilliant, knowing bebop player, a master with a sound to die for - rich, full, deep, positive, round and warm." With long, blues-drenched melodic lines and a horn-like approach, Bob has a signature style of groove and sophistication. Audiences and critics thrill to his "full, liquid tone," "soulful, intelligent interpretations," "masterful compositions and arrangements," and his "infectious, funky groove." A modern player with strong traditional roots, Bob is at home with straight-ahead jazz, blues, Rhythm & Blues, funk, Latin and more. Bob's current CD Shadow Box catapulted to the Top Ten Airplay Charts and is enjoying widespread critical acclaim; his earlier CDs as a leader for HighNote/Savant were on many Top Jazz CDs annual lists.

Oscar Perez

Oscar Perez

Ever since he was seven years old, Oscar Perez has been expressing himself on a piano. Being raised on his father's Cuban folk music, the piano lessons and playing in the church band was just a given. A young Oscar made the commitment to make music his life before even getting to ninth grade. As a native of the borough of Queens in New York City, he was exposed to many kinds of music. This was enhanced by his enrollment to the "FAME-d" LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts. But it would turn out to be jazz that would take him on his musical and personal journey. READ MORE

He has performed in concert halls and jazz clubs in the USA, Europe, Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East with a long list of artists, most notably Ray Barretto, Anthony Braxton,Freddie Bryant, Bobby Sanabria, and many others.
