Barbaresco Restaurant and Latin Fusion Tv present a special, and free, Live Jazz Performance with world-class trumpet player Johnny Holliday, at Barbaresco’s, 9715 San Pedro (the old Maggie’s Resturant) on Friday, October 21 from 8 to 10 pm.
Holliday, a San Antonio native, returns home to showcase his unique talents and abilities to raise awareness for the Fisher House and Air Force Security Forces Foundation. He was scheduled to play on Friday for a private benefit concert but the show was canceled at the last minute and Holliday has decided to play for the public.
Holliday performs Contemporary, Latin and Smooth Jazz with his custom made trumpet, Excalibur, manufactured by Marcinkiewicz Co., Inc. Additionally, Holliday sings and plays the saxophone, which in the world of horns, can be seen something as a dichotomy.
Holliday has performed his unique style for 4-Star generals, ambassadors, military brass and civilians in 14 countries and 44 states, including performing Taps for the Mobile Memorial r Vietnam Veterans. Holliday will perform at NASCAR next month.
Celebrating the release of his latest cd, “Into the Night,” Holiday will play many of these tunes along with original jazz and Holliday fan favorites. The cd will be available for sale and a portion of the proceeds go to the Fisher House.
The show, co-produced by Independent Functions, LFTv’s management company, and Holliday Entertainment, is to show how individuals can create functions that make a difference within the community.
