The Concert on the Quad series continues Monday, July 23rd with the annual favorite Evening of Jazz, welcoming newcomers to the stage, The BraziLionares.

The BraziLionaires sound is an infectious blend of jazz, rock, and pop over hypnotic Latin Grooves.

Fronted by vocalist Dove Benoit and guitarist Rico Johnson, the band is backed by a stellar cast of musicians and includes horns, bass, drums, and percussion. Since forming in 2012, the band has developed a strong following with a dynamic and engaging stage show. The BraziLionaires’ music can be heard on the radio and through streaming sites including Pandora and Spotify.
